This Bund pioneer serves up impeccable service and a menu peppered with Continental, Aussie and Moroccan inspiration. Try the pavlova for dessert.
Conceived by Paul Pairet for over 15 years, Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind attempting to unite food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. A single table of ten seats only. A 20-course “Avant-Garde” set menu. Dinner unfolds as a sensory play choreographed by chef Paul Pairet and the Ultraviolet Team. Specifically equipped with multi sensorial high-end technology, the dining room is dressed-up by lights, sounds, music, scents… a cool air blow, an immersive projection, images and imagination… and food. Each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere.
Lavish, lush European fine dining heading up by Chef Gerhard Passrugger with fantastic, nearly nosebleed views. A true treat for those for whom no expense must be spared.
When only the best will do, look no further than the celebrated Cupola, Shanghai’s most elite private dining venue. Recognized in Conde Naste Traveller’s “Trips of a Lifetime,” the Cupola has hosted a who’s who celebrity guestbook including Michael Shumacher, Beyonce, Tom Cruise, and Halle Berry. Literally at the apex of Three on the Bund, the Cupola is a split-level space accessed via a winding rooftop staircase. The first level, which can accommodate eight guests, is ideal for an intimate dinner gathering for friends or colleagues. It comes equipped with state-of-the art audio-visual equipment ideal for screening films or presentations. The second level features Shanghai’s most discrete dining space. With a soaring domed ceiling, panoramic city views, and plush drapery, it offers an enchanting environment in which to enjoy a gourmet meal with a loved one. Guests at the Cupola enjoy the finest VIP treatment from the moment they arrive at Three on the Bund. A private butler greets guests at the street entrance and provides dedicated service for the evening. In addition, diners at the Cupola may select a meal from any of Three on the Bund’s restaurants – Jean Georges, Nougatine, Whampoa Club or New Heights. To enrich the experience, the Cupola can provide specialty items or services from any of these restaurants. For example, guests may summon a tea sommelier from the Whampoa Club to perform a traditional tea ceremony, or request specialty cocktails from Jean Georges Bar. Enjoying such exclusive treatment, it is no wonder that guests at the Cupola feel on top of the world.
Don't be put off by the rather over the top decor in the lobby - there is a lot to be said for the Central Hotel and true to its name, it is located right in the heart of downtown Shanghai. The facilities are excellent, and the rooms smart and comfortable.
Latina pulls out all the stops with their endless portions of gaucho-style grilled meats. It's easily one of the best Brazilian churrascarias in town.
