The interior design at Wei Jing Ge inside Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund replicates a secret attic space in an opulent Chinese mansion. The restaurant’s name loosely translates to “sky view from the attic” and it’s easy to see why. The space on Club Level 5 has soaring wood ceilings with large rafters crisscrossing the space. The furnishings could all be described as Chinoiserie, a fanciful mix of East and West with whimsical decorative flourishes. Oblong lanterns dangle from the beams, and along with a large backlit wall with a cherry-blossom motif that lines one side of the room, they offer a comforting glow while you dine. Some tables are tucked into dormer windows create interesting nooks, which adds to the feeling that the restaurant is a hidden dining space. The white tablecloths are set with bright red Asian-inspired plates that add a pop of brightness to the room, rounding out the unique feel of the Shanghai restaurant.
