Locked out in... Shang­hai

Time Out (Sydney) - - LOCKOUTS - Jake Newby, Time Out Shang­hai

With cheap taxis, a con­cen­tra­tion of bars and clubs in the city cen­tre and gen­er­ally low (or no) cover charges ev­ery­where, Shang­hai’s nightlife al­lows you to hop from place to place de­pend­ing on the at­mos­phere or how well a party is go­ing. Late-night street food ven­dors fuel you on your way. A lot of this, and the city’s nascent af­ter-hours scene, would be un­done with lock­out laws. That said, we don’t have any­where in the city where out­door drink­ing is tol­er­ated af­ter 11pm as it is and, as with many of the rules gov­ern­ing nightlife in this city, a lock­out law would likely be ar­bi­trar­ily en­forced (if at all) if it were in­tro­duced in Shang­hai.
