Shanghai nights

Just how imaginatively the old can be mixed with the new can be seen in the recently opened Peninsula Shanghai, the first new structure in the riverfront Bund district since the Bank of China in 1927. It’s an elaborate tribute, down to the last piece of cutlery, to the extravagant modernist glories of Art Deco Shanghai, a return of classic luxury to the old ‘Paris of the East’. A vast celadon green mural adorns the vast lobby, where you can take tea and eat breakfast. In the rooms, elegance meets modern convenience with astonishing detail: light systems that do anything you require, iPod docks and Nespresso machines. Sir Elly’s Restaurant, Bar and Terrace is the place for drinks and modern European cuisine with views across the Bund skyline, while the Compass Bar is a favourite city rendezvous. One floor of the hotel houses the re-creation of a Twenties nobleman’s house, in which you can enjoy Cantonese cuisine. Round out your evening with cocktails and dancing in the atmospheric Salon de Ning. It goes without saying that service throughout is impeccable.
