Shanghai is not only a vibrant and bustling metropolis during the day, but offers plenty of options for entertainment when the sun goes down. From gourmet meals and shows, to bar- and club- hopping, here’s what you need to know to experience the best of nightlife in Shanghai.
 
Dinner Experiences
Discover tasty local dishes with the help of a guide; go off the beaten path on an evening food tour or sample a range of local favorites, such as dumplings and noodles, at night markets, food stalls, and tucked-away restaurants. Alternatively, sit down for a more formal meal. Options range from dim sum and hot pot at venues spanning family-owned eateries and Michelin-starred restaurants.
 
Nighttime Shows
Witness martial arts, acrobatics, magic acts, and circus tricks at a Shanghai show that fuses traditional skills with modern technology. Or, experience a traditional Qin or Chinese Opera performance. For musical theater unlike any other, catch a performance of Shanghai Bund—set in 1930s Shanghai—which mixes Chinese Opera with hip-hop and jazz to tell the love story of a wealthy young woman and a gangster, set in 1930s Shanghai.
 
Night Sightseeing
The city adopts a different character after dark. Enjoy a sightseeing cruise on the Huangpu River and get a different perspective of landmarks such as the Bund and the skyscrapers of Pudong. Join a group tour to see top Shanghai attractions when illuminated, or arrange a private walking tour to discover hidden gems that most tourists never see. To cover more ground, hop on a bike and explore Shanghai highlights such as the Old Town and Yuyuan Bazaar like a local.
 
Bar and Club Hopping
Shanghai has no shortage of nightlife hot spots, which range from trendy bars and hidden speakeasies to swanky rooftop lounges and smooth jazz clubs. For a hassle-free night out on the town, leave the planning to a guide, who tailors the night to your interests and ensures you bypass any lines. Tours usually include any cover charges and can also include drinks, access to open bars, and even a party bus to take you around town.
