During the afternoon tea service at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund’s Salon de Ville, you can enjoy live classical music while sipping tea and coffee and munching sweet and savory pastries, finger sandwiches and superb scones. Across the foyer in Long Bar, which is aptly named for its lengthy marble-topped bar, you can sip signature cocktails like the Waldorf (rye whiskey, absinthe, sweet vermouth, bitters) while a rhythm and blues band plays jazz favorites. There’s also a resident DJ who spins on special occasions. In addition to Salon de Ville and Long Bar, the hotel is also home to Peacock Alley, which serves epicurean-grade sandwiches and salads along with cocktails and wine. There’s no music here, but if you need a quiet place for a meeting Peacock Alley is an excellent option.
