Need to impress a date or your in-laws, or simply looking for a spot for some quality sipping? We've got you covered, here's a roundup of the best wine bars in Shanghai. 

 

Cru Wine Gallery, Shanghai's best wine bars

 

Cru Wine Gallery

Cru Wine Gallery in the United Valley compound has a quaint charm about it. Bottles adorn the walls, seating is intimate and the furnishings are simple and tasteful. If you’re drinking by the glass, you’ve got four choices: a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc (RMB45), an Italian Prosecco (RMB55), an Australian Cabernet-Merlot blend (RMB45) and a South African Shiraz (RMB55). Their bottles menu is a lot more exciting, with all kinds of fun stuff from Italy, Australia, New Zealand, South America and California.

XO Bar - Shanghai's best wine bars

 

XO Bar

No Shanghai wine bars list is complete without XO. The beloved wine delivery service's brick-and-mortar location opened on Hengshan Lu in early 2016. Like the app, the store sticks to its specialty of European wines—in fact, many of the bottles available on the app are served at the bar. A plus is that wines are also served here by the glass, which range from RMB25-125.

Kartel - Shanghai's best wine bars

 

Kartel

What makes this three-storey venue one of Shanghai's favorite wine bars spot is its large, fantastic terrace, offering a 360-degree view of the surrounding former French Concession area. Interiors feature lofty seats juxtaposed against concrete walls and pillars. Of course, the drinks are no slouch either, thanks to the bar's enviable selection of wines and cocktails. Also on offer are a selection of tapas-style dishes and a few well-selected mains.

UVA Wine Bar

This stylish Italian-run joint offers industrial-luxe decor, with exposed pipes, velvet window dressings and leather couches, lending a touch of kitsch with vintage Italian movie posters hanging from the walls.

Project Wine

Project Wine offers a nice selection of Italian, French and Spanish wines, served in a two-storey shabby-chic setting.

Tel: 6431-0258

 

Salute

The Italian owners of this coffee and wine joint have put together a short menu of salads and cold plates so patrons will have something to munch on while they drink, but it's the casual Mediterranean atmosphere that's the real sell. Most of the space is in the courtyard, but the half dozen tables inside are a solid place for good coffee and unpretentioius evenings over an affordable bottle of wine. Or three.

 

Where: 59 Fuxing Xi Lu (near Yongfu Lu) 复兴西路59号 (近永福路)

Tel: 3461-9828

 

Le Vin

Le Vin is housed in a renovated old house with a charming courtyard, offering a small list of tapas to go with its large list of wines.

Le Verre a Vin

This is the second branch of wine bar Le Vin, located right down the street from its predecessor. Hanging potted plants, white brick walls and elegant, unusual danging light bulbs installations come together for a rustic chic setting. Prices are fair but not the cheapest on a rotating selection of whites and red by the glass. You can also pick out a bottle from the shelves lining the back wall, which start somewhere around RMB250.

La Vite
 

Quaint and cozy, Italian bistro La Vite boasts colorful decor and a well-stocked menu of pastas, pizzas and antipasto, as well as a selection of Italian wines to be had at mid-range prices. It's a bit of a hidden gem; the food is good, the wine available both by the glass and the bottle, and the place always packed with returning loyals.

 

Where: No. 2, 247 Wulumuqi Zhong Lu (near Wuyuan Lu) 乌鲁木齐中路247-2号 (近五原路)

Tel: 6415-7858
