Summer is always the best of times in Shanghai, when the city really comes to life. And The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai has officially opened Terrace 8 to enhance those summer vibes even further. 


Located on Level 8 at The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai, under the roof of Shanghai Centre, this beautifully designed outdoor skylawn overlooks the historic Shanghai Exhibition Centre.


This summer, the theme of the terrace season is 'Garden of Pleasures,' highlighting the space as a sanctuary of communion where guests can escape the burdens of everyday life and immerse themselves in a realm of pure joy and indulgence. 


What is Garden of Pleasures?

Garden of Pleasures is a physical space located on the terrace of the legendary Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel.


In this unique setting, Ritz-Carlton's experiential and culinary teams have meticulously crafted sensory experiences with the intention of fostering unforgettable memories.


Terrace 8 offers a one-of-a-kind, 180-degree panoramic view. Featuring the historic Shanghai Exhibition Centre and local scenes of Puxi, it is one of Shanghai’s best kept skylawns. 

The Menu

Boasting a fusion of flavors elevated with sophisticated touches, the menu is all about enhancing classic dishes.

From delectable mini bagels, burrata and hummus to a tantalizing selection of charcuterie, greens, salads, and premium meats – featured in mini burgers, skewers, and platters – the menu ensures a delightful and health-conscious dining experience.


Some of the highlight items include...

  • Tortilla Espanola

  • Smoked Eggplant Baba Ganoush

  • Charred Pork Jowls

  • Lamb Kofta Skewer

  • And many, many more

Proteins are sourced daily for high-quality, fresh meat that is cooked to order on a live-grill and served right to your table. 

The Drinks

Featuring a mix of beloved global beer brands and homegrown Shanghai local craft beers, Terrace 8’s beer selection is sure to delight and surprise.


As well as international brands like Erdinger from Germany, Duvel from Belgium and Brooklyn Lager from the USA, guests can also explore brews from the local craft beer scene, plus a wide selection of international wines (red, white, and sparkling) and spirits. 

The Vibe

On weekdays, Terrace 8 is all about a relaxing getaway feel from the Shanghai hustle and bustle below it.

Come the weekend, the skylawn offer soundscapes, with the vibrant beats of DJ Nikki harmoniously blended with the background sounds of the city every Friday and Saturday.
