Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund

An exclusive men's club during Shanghai's 1920s and '30s heyday, the building that houses this hotel is more than just a city landmark. It is a place where a tradition of fine living is carried on, in the form of swanky heritage suites, a new-build luxury tower and legendary Waldorf Astoria service. Three restaurants, two lounges and a bar offer an array of drinking and dining experiences, from Peacock Alley, created in the image of its beloved New York namesake, to Pelham's, boasting a floating glass exhibition kitchen and menu of contemporary French-influenced cuisine. For a blast from the past, the original Long Bar has been meticulously recreated, complete with jazz, an oyster bar, an extensive menu of single malt whiskies and a selection of Cuban cigars.
