In keeping with its name, red dominates Bar Rouge. Red-leather banquette seating lines the inner room. The lighting is red. Photos of red-lipped models adorn the walls. A red dragon sits on the reception desk, and the red Chinese Communist flag flies on the terrace! Bar Rouge is the headquarters of Shanghai nightlife, mingling local gilded youth and expatriates.
Midnight dancing with the wind in your hair on the terrace looking out at the Oriental Pearl Tower will make your head spin. DJ Miss Elise plays groove; there are also hip-hop evenings. From here, you can closely admire the beautiful Bund buildings that date from the Roaring Twenties. By fusing two cultures, the Franco-Chinese management have made Bar Rouge a hotspot.
