Lao Beijing is a grand old Peking duck restaurant. The dining room is large, the hostesses are tarted up in costume, and the place smells of wood smoke. This location, down near the Bund, is great for tourists staying at the Westin and people looking for dinner before heading out on the Bund, but bear in mind that while business is booming early on in the evening, the whole operation slows down dramatically around 9pm. For our money, Lao Beijing's crisp ducks are better than hyped chain Quanjude.?
Rich in culinary history, this restaurant uses recipes which fed the last emperor and survived three wars. The food itself is understated and very elegant. Expect to pay handsomely.

No other building on the Bund embodies the splendor of 1930s Shanghai like the Peace Hotel. Originally named the Cathay Hotel, its construction was completed in 1929 by famed real estate mogul Victor Sassoon, and it quickly came to be regarded as the most prestigious hotel in the city. Back in the day, it was the digs of choice for A-listers like film actor Charlie Chaplin and US General George Marshall of Marshall Plan fame. English playwright Noel Coward is even said to have completed his famous work Private Lives in one of its rooms. In recent years, the hotel has undergone a renovation, which preserved many of the hotel’s stunning art deco design elements. The hotel’s lobby bar is particularly famous for its nightly jazz performances.
