what new in shanghai has emerged as China’s capital of all that is cosmopolitan—it has Asia’s richest collection of Art Deco buildings, the nation’s best chefs, a thriving business hub and some of the world’s tallest and most unusual-looking skyscrapers. The city is undergoing a renaissance, and that’s why Forbes Travel Guide has chosen Shanghai for its fifth international destination. Visit our website to see our picks for Shanghai’s best hotels, spas and restaurants. But for now, see what’s new in China’s largest city.
One of the city’s newest hotels is Andaz Shanghai, which sits in the fashionable Xintiandi neighborhood amid chic boutiques and historic shikumen houses. Opened in October, it’s the first Asian outpost of the Andaz brand. The ultra-modern rooms come with the latest technology: Play with the colors of the LED lighting in the bedroom ceiling and the bathroom’s translucent sink and tub. Wake up in the dark, and a sensor flicks on the nightlight. The bathrooms also come with heated floors and a Toto toilet with more buttons than a TV remote. Don’t forget to stop into the hotel’s Éclair bakery to snack on cream-filled pastries, fresh-baked bread and chocolate. Business travelers will do well to check into the 720-room Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre, which debuted in November just north of People’s Square, the geographical city center. Power players reserve its 48 executive suites and plentiful meeting spaces. However, you may want to seal the deal over sake and sublime sashimi at the hotel’s Inagiku, the first Shanghai branch for this 150-year-old Japanese restaurant brand.
Shanghai’s food scene keeps evolving. August saw the birth of Malt Fun, where nearly every major whiskey region—from the Orkney Islands to the Highlands—is represented. The bar’s iPad menu also includes a small selection of bourbons, Japanese malts like Yamazaki and well-poured cocktails made with top-shelf liquors like Grey Goose and Hendrick’s. Though if you want cocktails, take a quick jaunt from Malt Fun to The Fennel Lounge. The new arrival in Shanghai’s ever-expanding cocktail culture serves creative, handcrafted drinks like the Fennel Cooler—absinthe; apple, pineapple and lemon juices; Cointreau; egg whites; and shaved fresh fennel.
