If you're planning a late one, Hollywood is here to fit the bill. No cover for dudes before 1am, and ladies are clear until 3am, but if you end up in one of the paying grey timslots in the wee hours of the morn', know your cover gets you a drink.

‘ZEE’ is an audiovisual collaboration between American video artist Zebbler and Spanish electronic music producer Encanti. The combination of heavy psychedelic bass music and mapped visuals on three custom winged projection screens creates a fantasy world ripe for escapism. This set will be smaller than some of the bigger stages they normally play, so they're queued up for an intimate, immersive experience.

Jan 12, 9pm, RMB100 pre-sale, RMB120 door. Lofas, see event listingbuy tickets.


Jan 12: DJ Normal 4

DJ Normal 4 was raised close to Düsseldorf in the Ruhr area. It is a former strong and lively industrial conglomerate city, now a bygone and dead epicenter of German heavy Industry full of dusty factory skeletons and abandoned industrial complexes. Rave fantasies and being surrounded by this reality of geometric shadows, harsh skylines and lost dreams gave birth to his sound.  

Jan 12, 9pm, RMB60. Dada, see event listing.


Jan 12: On Top Party

Ever party on the 92nd floor of the Park Hyatt? Come to think of it, ever party on the 92nd floor of any building? Well! Now you can! New year's eve might be over, but the people over at MVP are giving you another reason to glam up and hit Lujiazui for some house music and killer views - pollution pending, that is. RMB100 gets you a welcome drink and entry, or RVSP for free entry until midnight (check the listing).

Jan 12, 10pm, RSVP or RMB100 including one drink. Park Hyatt Shanghai, see event listing.
