The name Wei Jing Ge technically translates to “attic room with a view of the sky” but in reality, there really are no views. The restaurant designed to look like an attic at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund has a row of dormer windows that let in small squares of light, but there are no vistas of the Bund waterfront or Pudong District outside. Instead, we suggest you focus on the views inside the restaurant specializing in authentic Cantonese, Shanghainese and Huai Yang cuisine; it has gone to great lengths to create a cozy hideaway feeling. Beginning with the long hallway that leads to the main dining space you’ll see ornate wooden cases housing elaborate antique teacups and framed pieces of Chinese calligraphy lining the walls. In the dining room itself, it’s practically impossible to tear your eyes from the soaring rafters and beams that comprise the attic ceiling where long, slim lanterns glow overhead.
