WA­TER­ING HOLES

Paradise - - Traveller -

Stylish steak­house Char (585 Zhong­shan East Sec­ond Road, Huangpu; char-the­bund.com) sits on the trendy south­ern end of the Bund and has a great cock­tail ter­race with views over the river to­wards Pudong’s sky­scrapers.

Min­i­mal­ist, self-de­scribed ‘seafood speakeasy’, The Plump Oys­ter (171 Jian­guo Cen­tral Road, Huangpu) is per­fect for late-night jazz, oys­ter tast­ing plates and 40-odd va­ri­eties of gin from around the world.

The vaguely nau­ti­cal-themed Cap­tain’s Bar (37 Fuzhou Road, Huangpu; cap­tain­hos­telshang­hai. com) is part of a hos­tel just be­hind the Bund and has an easy-go­ing, un­pre­ten­tious vibe and rea­son­able prices, yet still has great ter­race views.

Shang­hai de­lights ... (op­po­site page, from left) neon signs in Nan­jing Road; by the river­side at the Bund; the cock­tail ter­race at Char; view to­wards Pudong from the Fair­mont Peace Ho­tel; bikes racked up at in­dus­trial- chic Cuivre, which serves French bistro food and Asian- in­spired ta­pas.
