New Bar: Uptown Records n’ Beer

By Betty Richardson, March 25, 2015

Craft beer and vintage vinyl: could God himself have conceived a greater combination? Who knows, but at any rate, Sacco (former manager of 390, now known as Lucca) has opened Uptown Records n’ Beer on Yongfu Lu, the name a nod to R&B label Uptown Records.

Part beer and liquor store, part record shop and part bar, Uptown is a place for those blessed with good taste in music and/or beer to casually convene and indulge in both.

Uptown Records n’ Beer Bar

A compact little bar with five stools and cabinets stocked with bottled beers, Uptown is a great place to pre-drink or pick up booze en route to a party. As the name suggests, there’s a nice selection of records for sale too, ranging from RMB30 up to RMB100 for more coveted editions. Think jazz classics like Charlie Mingus, Thelonious Monk, funk, soul and a smattering of other retro classics. 

Grown up, chilled and relatively quiet, you can rely on Uptown to have an infinitely better soundtrack than your average Shanghai bar - and for that, it gets a spot on our pre-gaming playlist. 

Price: Bottled beer RMB15-28, bottled wine & spirits RMB165+

Who’s going: Music connoisseurs

Good for: Pre-drinking, liquor runs, good music, vinyl, casual drinks.
