Perched high above the cos­mopoli­tan buzz of Shang­hai is one of the city’s most ex­clu­sive spots for gourmet in­dul­gences. Lo­cated on the top floor (21/F) of Wanda Reign on the Bund, RuiKu of­fers a lux­u­ri­ous en­vi­ron­ment for a dis­tin­guished crowd.

The restau­rant and fash­ion­able bar cater to dis­cern­ing gour­mands, with stun­ning floorto-ceil­ing win­dows over­look­ing the Bund’s his­toric wa­ter­front and Pudong’s fu­tur­is­tic sky­line, pro­vid­ing an amaz­ing back­drop for any kind of event.

In­side, the so­phis­ti­cated restau­rant con­tin­ues the ho­tel’s Art Deco de­sign theme, with in­tri­cate ra­dial pat­terns and strik­ing sym­me­try. The mag­nif­i­cent mar­ble floor, Euro­pean fur­ni­ture and con­tem­po­rary art dis­played through­out the venue em­brace both mod­ern aes­thet­ics and clas­sic el­e­gance, cre­at­ing a back­drop of lux­ury and com­fort for all guests to rel­ish.

The menu re­veals a trove of seafood trea­sures and oys­ters, along with con­tem­po­rary Euro­pean crowd pleasers that have been ex­pertly cre­ated with top qual­ity in­gre­di­ents. A dash of in­no­va­tion is also added, to give each dish a stylish, novel twist that will keep din­ers on the edge of their seats.

RuiKu re­cently added an­other level of so­phis­ti­ca­tion with the in­tro­duc­tion of its unique scented tea-themed af­ter­noon tea ex­pe­ri­ence, served daily in the el­e­gant set­ting. In­no­va­tive flavour pair­ings fea­ture premium tea blends such as sakura tea with yuzu fro­mage mousse and rose flower tea with berry patis­serie.

Mean­while, a so­phis­ti­cated cham­pagne and wine lounge pro­vides the ideal set­ting for catch­ing up with friends and busi­ness as­so­ci­ates.

In the evening, the ad­join­ing ter­race be­comes one of the chicest hotspots in town, com­plete with world-fa­mous DJs and live bands, en­tic­ing cock­tails and stun­ning views over Shang­hai’s iconic cityscape. You’ll want to dress to im­press to rub shoul­ders with Shang­hai’s movers and shak­ers.

On Thurs­days, ladies will en­joy a com­pli­men­tary glass of Chan­don Rose when they en­ter, plus half price cock­tails and wine all night to ease you into the week­end.

Lo­cated in the heart of his­toric Shang­hai, Wanda Reign on the Bund is syn­ony­mous with ex­quis­ite style, lux­ury and ser­vice. All 190 spa­cious rooms come with high-speed wifi, iPad smart in-room con­trols and of course the heav­enly “Bed of Reign”.

In ad­di­tion to RuiKu, the ho­tel boasts three ad­di­tional din­ing op­tions, in­clud­ing all-day din­ing at Café Reign, RIVER DRUNK Huaiyang Chi­nese restau­rant, and HE Ja­panese restau­rant.
