Went in for a late night beer having missed dinner. Good beer and friendly staff but being a vegetarian in Shanghai is not easy, even at a modern hotel. No vegetarian dishes on the snack menu, not even a salad!

Located off the lobby. Quiet spot with a full bar menu that includes western food (and French fries, too). Two flavors of beer brewed on site - light & dark. Non-smoking. Friendly bartenders.

at 10pm the 505 brew pub was "full of emptyness". Beers are average at exorbitant prices! 7 Euro for 0.3 lters. At an "ordinary restaurant you may get 0.6 ltr of "main-stream beers" for just 2 Euros!

Small place with drinks and some snacks. Nothing special, people smoking in this place what was inconvenient for me. That is why I just took one glass of wine and I left after few minutes.
