Windows Too Tours – Shanghai, China
About this place
Ahhh… the infamous Windows… Ask just about anyone who has lived in Shanghai for more than a month, and they will undoubtedly know something about Windows, even if they’ve never been there. Windows is THAT bar in college that required a certain mood in order to go to, but when the mood struck, it always made for a a fantastic evening.
The original Windows still stands on Mao Ming Road, the former heart of expat nightlife. When the government “shut down” the wild nights on Mao Ming Road most of the bars opened second locations on Tongren Road near the Ritz Carlton on Nanjing Road. Windows Too opted for a new location, however, that gave them more a little more room to support the throngs of young people seeking CHEAP drinks and a raging party. Despite the club’s spacious interior, there is rarely a night when there is room to breathe. My best advice is to head for the bar and take advantage of the cheap drinks. It should make the atmosphere much less claustrophobic, and the crowd much more entertaining.
On weekends there is usually a 30 RMB cover charge, which includes a couple of free drink tickets. The tickets are worth 10 RMB, which is conveniently the price of just about every drink at the bar. It would be difficult to find a better deal anywhere else in Shanghai. The crowd is a mix of foreigners and locals. While most people aren’t here looking for the love of their life, there will certainly be plenty of choices of dance partners for the evening. Wear whatever clothing you won’t mind having beer and liquor spilt all over. Have fun!
How to get there: Take Metro Line 2 to Jingan Temple Station. Windows is inside the plaza right at the station.
