It took a few years before Shanghai could delve freely into nostalgia for the 1930s. If you want to join this trend, choose Yongfoo Elite. The former British Consulate in the old French concession was bought by fashion designer Wang Xing Zheng, who turned it into an Art Deco temple, decorated with contemporary furniture and bright colours.
You will not find any better place in Shanghai to enjoy a cocktail than in this magnolia-scented garden next to the goldfish pond. Like Karl Lagerfeld, Sharon Stone, and Jackie Chan, dine on delicious Shanghainese cuisine on one of the two verandas, where the gold-leaf walls are patterned with ideograms and foliage motifs. And, of course, the kindness and attentiveness of the staff meet your highest expectations.
