Description

Comprised of a club, lounge, terrace and restaurant, this semi-private spot is one of Shanghai's longstanding nightlife institutions. Pass through the famous shark tank-lined entryway and spend an evening dancing to EDM, sipping Champagne and cocktails and drinking in the 24-story views of The Bund with Shanghai's flashiest nightclubbers.

The best nightclub with high end dressed people around, don't order a cocktail which takes long time but share a bottle with friends is the best way

If rumors were true, it certainly makes one wonder how and why they have being paying huge dividends to their investors recently at a time of financial crisis. This company has appeared healthy and solvent like a ponzi scheme.

It is true that the staff was not paid their March salaries. The police department shut down M1NT on Friday and it hasn't reopened since, but it's not confirmed yet whether or not the club is closed forever. We'll let you know as soon as we know! I'm concerned about the fate of the sharks...

At 11:40 the fire/police arrived and went table to table asked us to leave they are closed!. When I asked the staff to save the bottle the waiter told me to take it home. Don't bother saving it. The gf asked me to go back at one and ask for her reserved 2 bottle of Blue label the white guys at the door said closed because of ah hmm gas leak bullshit!!, they hope to open by Wed. ahha haaa yea right that's when the staff downstairs said they were not paid last month's salaries!. So closed closed!!

We heard that M1NT is closing down. Is that true or is that all just rumors? Something about the owner being a swindler and in debt.

I was visited M1NT with my business friends on Saturday night. We didn't make RSVP so we were waited for a long time at the door which made me a bit frustrated. Anyhow, the club is good, cool people and music does rock.

Weekend here is the best. My girl friends and I like this place, every time it makes us feel like home LOL the drinks are good here and the lounge manager Sky is an awesome guy who makes the best cocktails in town. But you need to make RSVP to get in and sometimes need to wait for a long time at the door which is very frustrating.

What a great experience, definitely a must if you have never been and if you have then it is a good weekly hang out especially the models night. Music is always booming as they seem to have different DJs regularly as well as some models and dancers every night. The themed nights are cool too! Would definitely recommend this

Last night was sub-par indeed. Maybe our group encountered the same girl chinookster did. I hadn't been here in at least a couple of months but think they are getting some new bouncers, one of them of which has especially bad attitude. Having been to M1nt plenty of times before, I know how they restrict the flow of incoming people but there's a difference between prioritizing those with a table vs. telling off others who are also waiting. Don't think this girl had no self-awareness either -- at one point the girl told my friend that if we call her a b*tch, our group wasn't going to get in. ??? Anyways, when we finally found out the table name and went in, a staff member upstairs sent us a tray of shots upon hearing about our experience downstairs. Still, what they should be doing is checking maybe their bouncer's mental health. When I think about it, her behavior was really abnormal, even if the job can wear at you. Lastly, I'd never rated M1nt before because it has been the setting for both one of my best clubbing experiences and some not-so-great times. 3.5 stars.

Tonight, I had my worst clubbing experience ever in Shanghai at M1nt. Without doing anything, a girl that obviously belonged to the M1nt pushed me away to get her way, threw a drink at me and started hitting me. Then immediately security treated me like an animal, escorted me to a separate room, and wanted to know what is wrong with me. The Hawaiian security guy and chinese Freddie first told me they will resolve everything after talking to the girl - only after realizing that I really did nothing wrong and just was standing where I stood the whole evening. Long story short, the girl never appeared, they said they can't find her and it is all a misunderstanding. They tried to buy me off with a drink but never said sorry. Also they could not assure me that I will not be hit by this woman ever again. If you think I am overreacting, ok. If you do not want to be treated like a criminal for doing nothing any longer than 1 hour, never ever go to m1nt!!!! Looks like a sad decline of an over hyped club to me.

I have to agree with Markk. The bartenders at M1NT are a bunch of shifty guys. They were trying to cheat us, too. It appears to be a chronic and severe problem.

What a shame bartenders at M1NT are thieves! I ordered an expensive round of drinks for me and my buddies and paid the bartender. The bartender pretended that he was not paid for the drink and did not serve the drink! What a rip-off! I asked several times and they pretended to ignore us at first then claimed that I didn't make an order. Liars! To M1NT: you need to fire half of your bartenders, they are cheating you and your customers. The other bartenders could easily see the bartender ripping us off and they did nothing. Most of them are probably in on it together. Shame! It's true that M1NT is a good club and very popular now. But with thieving bartenders, people will be put off by M1NT and it can get a bad reputation. I used to like M1NT but no longer.

Why do people say "mint" when it is "m-one-nt"? Because M1NT is cooler than cool. M1NT is eternally attractive. Like a sinful Garden of Eden. I even take my grandmother there.

M1NT rocks and that's it. @oljackburton kid, have you ever heard that tune by EPMD - "You gots to chill"? Probably not because when I was partying with classier people than you... you weren't even born. So that's the message for you - chill out. a) I'm not an English teacher, and what's your problem with these good fellas? Be thankful they're indirectly helping you get a drink at M1NT even though you don't speak a word of Mandarin. Back in your nation they'd be unemployed and on welfare cheques, so be glad; b) I can get in and out of M1NT without paying any membership fees nor by begging bouncers with the "I have friends from abroad waiting for me upstairs" excuse you regularly use (unless you actually work at M1NT); c) I can definitely tell you that (back in the days) my game did work - maybe I possess more savoir-faire than you do, sorry about that mate; d) I like shark tanks (sorry mom) and love beautiful women, and I like M1NT - I am not mad about people enjoying the environment because I do too, but do you know what "parvenu" means? Reflect on this; e) Poor choice of drinks? I'm sure you won't be able to tell a Crystal from a Cava by the way you sport that bottle of Er Gou Tou in your profile picture, so STFU.

It's a lot of fun. Possibly one of the best places in China where you can hone the art and science of pulling girls by telling lies. Sorry for being sexist here, ladies. Make sure you are dressed appropriately, and be creative! You're an overseas entrepreneur, a real estate tycoon, somebody's son. Bring a wingman along with you, or more than one. Pockets full of red Maos are mandatory. Marks are abundant, so have fun - alcohol and a low average IQ does the rest for you. We truly are in the workers' socialist paradise aren't we? And remember: sharing is caring. For all the people bi****ng about overpriced drinks - arm yourself with a couple of Red Label mignon bottles (you can get them from your friendly Lawson's or Kedi), order a Cuba Libre (classic) and top it up as you please when in the bathroom. It's always a fantastic pleasure to outsmart pretentious places (and clienteles) such as this.

Mint is a concept venue with a very tight business plan and marketing strategy. It is highly privileged and exclusionary because that fits precisely with the consumer insight of their base. Those here that have written reviews about the door policy and price structure are missing the point entirely. I would say that Mint doesn't care if those folks ever come back. They separated you from some of your money and that will pay out a fat dividend to their shareholders. There is always someone behind you that wants in or back in. As P.T. Barnum once said, "there's a sucker born every minute." Mint is just that. Its consumers have a distinctive need to feel important and different from the rest of humanity. Mint is the ultimate enabler of this psychosis and social malais. Drink up!

Restaurant by day and club by night, this swanky venue is the place to see and be seen. If you move to house/techno music and have spare cash to expend, you’ll revel in this hotspot teeming with expats. Expect pricey drinks — a Bund standard — but the sophisticated décor, stunning terrace view, and live shark tanks give you definite bang for your buck.

The first time we went to M1NT was a Friday night and we stayed from 12-half 1. The music was poor techno/house, no one was dancing, a lot of posing and people-watching. So we decided to give it another try on Saturday at 2. The door policy is horrendous. They insist on a ‘smart’ dress code but I think this only applies to shoes. I saw a guy coming out wearing a cow suit complete with bell around his neck, some skanky sparkly t-shirt wearing girls going in. At that time apparently only members and people who have a table are allowed in immediately. Everyone else, even if you are a group of 3 pretty attractive girls, have to wait for an undetermined amount of time. The girl at the door refused to give an estimate. 2 hours? 20 minutes? Who knows. We certainly didn’t as we moved onto a different club. Yeah baby sharks are cute but waiting for I don’t know how long to see them on a Saturday night? So if your main objective is dancing and you have no inclination for paying to sit in a club I wouldn’t go to M1NT.

Went there for dinner few times the last 4 weeks. I think the food is good quality, the steaks are really good and well prepared and service is also good. Not too expensive actually compared to other Bund restaurants. If I could make one recommendation, when you order an appetizer they serve it within 3-4 minutes (all 5 or 6 times I've been there over time)..... That is not so pleasant, it makes you feel like you're being rushed and appetizers are pre-prepared. Which I dont really mind that much if they taste good, but at least create the illusion of freshness :-). When you ask them to wait with bringing the main course until you give a signal they do really listen to this. Well done. The club? Its a good club, good music. I dont really care too much for the people that come there because most of them seem a bit flashy and superficial / all about appearances. Supported by the "member" system. Many goldiggers also, that cant even relax and smile, because they focus on looking good. Ah well, each his/her taste.

Went there last night for 1st time as it was my bday and Macy Gray was supposed to be doing a gig. I say supposed to, she didn't turn up until 1.30am, did short versions of 2 songs, that was it. Anyway, that's not the purpose of this message, if anyone from M1NT reads these messages, baby sharks in tanks are cute, but bloody hell mate, that is the most uninspiring aquarium I have ever had the misfortune to see. Normally I couldn't give a XXXX about sharks and fish, but they must be going mad in that aquarium. Apart from water and some gravel, that was it, please either make the aquarium more interesting for the residents of it, or put the poor sharks out of their misery. Thanks

After one year checking out some other restaurants I went to M1NT RESTAURANT again. I am surprised about the bad evaluation of "american" below. The service is still very good. The food remained the same excellent quality. A minor flaw was the appearance of the cheese platter. I would recommend a bit more phantasy, when creating the plate ... looked a kind of boring.

A bit over rated and hyped .Racist to blacks and many colored people(At least not to Chinese because its china otherwise they could be shut down) . Claim to be a private club but strategically used as weapon for social stratification and segregation. Typical expensive club with no respect or importance to customers satisfaction, sometimes the drinks does not reflect the cost unlike many other places with almost the same price tag example (Glamor Bar*****) The management is arrogant ,proud and they sucks!! The only good thing about this club is that they spent good money on the interior.
