The Shanghai Club (former club that occupied the current Waldorf Astoria Club premises) was famed for its Long Bar, an impressive 34m bar counter and longest in the Far East back in the early days of the 1910s. Today, the original Long Bar design is resurrected in this space, with every element of the bar and wall paneling carefully studied and reproduced from photographic records. The overall style is dark timber paneling with light stone tops and rich, dark masculine furniture.
Long Bar offers a wide range of spirits, including a good selection of cocktails as well as Waldorf Astoria classics done in the original way. An extensive choice of single malt whiskies and beers is available. For those who enjoy their cigars every now and then, Long Bar offers a selection of premium Cuban cigars.
Bringing back one of the luxuries of the olden days is the Oyster Bar, which also features creative titbits. Our gastro pub food selection adds a touch of fun and attitude to bar grub’s classics, with fresh salads and crusty sandwiches for quick business lunches and party platters to share on a night out.
With one end of the bar enjoying the stunning view of the Bund Promenade, guests can also move to the rhythm and blues brought to you by regular entertainers and the resident deejay. Jazz music adds to the soul of this truly classic bar.
