Las Tapas is home to a fine assortment of Spanish-style tapas, a good selection of main dishes, and a respectable drink menu. The cozy, low lit atmosphere makes it a great choice for an affordable date and the friendly staff assures a stress-free meal. As of the beginning of 2008, Tapas Bar has relaunched with a slightly new menu, but all the key ingredients to a successful restaurant still remain
Xintiandi marks a sea change in Shanghai’s urban development policies. Rather than razing a block of dilapidated shikumen, or “stone gate,” homes, the Shanghai government, in cooperation with real estate development firm Shui On, commissioned American architect Ben Wood to redesign and renovate them. The end result is an upscale nightlife, dining and shopping hub. It’s a popular spot for Shanghai’s well-heeled residents as well as the tour coach set. And they’re here as much for the shopping as the history, because, in a priceless twist of irony, this center of outright consumerism is also home to the site of the First Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. It's something of a pilgrimage site for patriotic types.
