Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund has two bars and three restaurants, and quality drinks are served across the board. At Pelham’s, the Five-Star hotel’s Western fine dining spot, be sure to try the restaurant’s two specialty cocktails: The Zaza (gin, Dubonnet and Angostura bitters) and The Waldorf (rye whiskey, absinthe, sweet vermouth and bitters). Just across the foyer from Pelham’s is Long Bar, a masculine den of craft cocktails and one very long, marble-topped bar. Retire here after expanding your waistline at Pelham’s and indulge in one of its signature cocktails, such as a Waldorf Astoria-style Old Fashioned (bourbon, cane sugar, orange peel and bitters), The Waldorf Queen (gin, pineapple, orange juice, sweet vermouth, dry vermouth) or the 1915 (gin, curacao liqueur and cream).
