I found myself on Anfu Lu meeting up with a friend, and opted to pop in for a drink and a quick bite to eat. I didn't think much when I first walked past, but I decided to go back and have another look. I had one of their signature cocktails (which is a very reasonable price for this part... More

This bagel shop is located on a quiet area and has an open air bar looking out of anfu road. The bagels are quite tasty and their homemade tonics are fantastic. The coffee is very overpriced. Great place to grab a quick bite on the way to work or to meet up with friends on the weekend.

The bagels here are better than anywhere in town. Absolutely phenomenal. The ingredients are high quality and they put great care into preparing their dishes. BRAVO!! I must say, that the coffee selections seem to be incredibly... no, I mean ridiculously, overpriced. Take that Starbucks coffee (which is gross and cheap), then multiply it by two and you will get...

I lived on Ding Xi Ly near Xuenhua Lu for 12 months, and I ate here five times a week for lunch or dinner. Family-owned and operated. Excellent service. Contrary to appearance, this is a full-service restaurant with excellent salads, sandwiches, and hot plates. There's a small bar and a good espresso machine. Simple menu focusing on American and European... More

Boom cafe § bar, opposite Pudi Boutique Hotel and very close to Huaihai road is a very nice little cafe where you can get off the road, enjoy the nice atmosphere and have a chat. The owner and staff are very nice and friendly and the coffee was very good!

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
