Banyan Tree Spa at the Westin Hotel Shanghai

Banyan Tree Spa at the Westin Hotel Shanghai

A luxurious spa experience in Shanghai It may seem that I do little else but spa when I am in Shanghai. This is not entirely true… but I tend to spend a great deal of time there for business, which can be stressful, so I like to make...

A Roaring Good Time at Mr & Mrs Bund, Shanghai

Say hello to my new favourite restaurant in Shanghai! (Photos by Joanna) I had been meaning to try Mr. & Mrs. Bund for a while. It’s close to the Westin Hotel where I always stay when in Shanghai. It has a bit of buzz. And the chef was...
Gastronomic French Tasting Menu with City Views, Jade on 36 in Shanghai

Gastronomic French Tasting Menu with City Views, Jade on 36 in Shanghai

A birds eye view on the Bund and fine French dining from the 36th Floor of the Shangri La Hotel I think we might be addicted to multi-course degustation menus. You might think this is lazy, to let the chef pick for you. But in reality it is...

Luxury Spa in Shanghai, Evian Spa at Three on the Bund

A minimalist urban sanctuary on the Bund I had read about the Evian Spa several times over the last couple of years, but somehow never found the time to visit. I often go to Shanghai for work, but it is all rushing around to meetings and work dinners…so...

Fine Dining on the Bund – Jean Georges, Shanghai

Why is it that Jean Georges seems to define the various culinary chapters of my life? I first became aware of Jean Georges Vongerichten when I was living in New York. I was in advertising…it was the early 1990’s…expense accounts were fat (people in America not just yet;)…and...

Pan-Asian Cuisine at Whampoa Club on the Bund, Shanghai China

An oft-recommend restaurant on the Bund…can it live up to the hype? I had been meaning to get to Whampoa Club for a while. It has been recommended several times but somehow in my many trips to Shanghai I often ended up elsewhere. Having had the occasion to...

Cool Cocktails on the Bund at Glamour Bar, Shanghai

Beautiful people and glamourous cocktails and this river-view stunner In the vein of big city bars with a view is The Glamour Bar on the Bund in Shanghai. I tend to have an affinity for Glamour Bar though, over say, the usual bar-with-a-view spots in Asia, e.g. Vertigo...
