Hakkasan was founded in London in 2001 and has since become one of the world’s most distinguished global restaurant, lounge and nightlife brands.
Housed in the illustrious Bund 18 building, Hakkasan Shanghai is a stunning example of the brand’s striking design, alluring cuisine and exceptional mixology and sommelier skills, set against Shanghai’s most iconic view.
Hakkasan Shanghai offers three different dining spaces. The Ling Ling Lounge, which sits in front of Shanghai’s impressive skyline, offers diners a relaxed lounge setting for cocktails or dinner. The main dining area, known as the “Cage”, is beautifully defined by latticed woodwork that creates an intimate inner dining space. And finally, in deference to Shanghai’s dining culture, there are five luxurious private dining rooms set around the periphery of the restaurant.
The menu, devised by Michelin-starred chef Tong Chee Hwee, has a strong Chinese identity which is underpinned by authenticity rather than traditionalism and uses locally sourced ingredients to create Hakkasan’s renowned signature dishes. Dishes such as cod with Champagne and Chinese honey, crispy duck salad and jasmine tea smoked Wagyu tenderloin have been artfully adapted to the palate of the resident clientele.
Hakkasan Shanghai is open for dinner every night, offers a Late Night dining menu on Friday and Saturday evenings and its wonderful Hakka Bund Weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
