Description

This sophisticated and intimate lounge in Hyatt on the Bund has amazing views of both the Bund and Pudong. In the winter, admire the view from inside, but when summer rolls around bring your bikini and take advantage of the Jacuzzi and day beds. Come enjoy quality cocktails, but beware–they're served at the standard Bund prices.

One of the biggest let-downs in Shanghai. The food is not good. The cocktails are poorly prepared. And the service is miserable. If it didn't have the view then Vue would have nothing, including no customers.

The view is nice but you can get a nice view in so many other places. The 100 RMB cover charge is not worth it at all, the service was terrible, and there's a minimum charge to sit by the window. I would definitely not go back.

aw.....interns...always popping up this time of the year.. Let me guess..the summer has just started..finally graduated from Dulwich college and now you have to find yourself an intern job before heading off to college... The view might be amazing.. place might be a little far on the other side of the bund...but if too far..try flair bar..or even char, both may be a bit more expensive but at least the view is great! Window seats are always more expensive...maybe next time you should ask mummy to take you ;)

As the name states it well, you go there for the view. One of the most amazing of Shanghai. You definitely don't go there because it's convenient: it's far from everything, nor because service is good: it's not, not because it's haohe: wine really not good (at least the ones I could afford), cocktails just ok and of course definitely not because it's affordable. In the winter, if you don't want to freeze out while having a dink on the jacuzzi roof top, you have to pay to sit at a window table!!! Just unacceptable, hate the concept. But, each time I have friends visiting, I still bring them there... just for the view

Terrible place!!! The view is nice but everything else is lousy. You think if they have a nice view they would make it a good quality bar. But it isnot. When we got there they said 100RMB per person entrance charge starting from 17.30 to 22.30 and it includes free miniburgers and sandwichs and 2 'special' drinks or 1 other drink. It seemed ok. We went inside at 6pm and ordered our drinks.....really really bad. We got 2 'special' mojitos. They were trash. Disgusting like just syrup. Then we ordered one soda water to top onto the syrup 'mojitos'.....they could not even bring the whole can, it was a small glass and it was flat. No gas in soda water. Terrible. We went to the small counter with 'food' and found 1 small chicken sandwich and 1 small pork sandwich. We took them. Freaking hell the sandwiches were bad bad. We waited but no more sandwichs. So I asked the entrance girl who said 'miniburgers and sandwichs'. She said no more. I told her that she said minburgers and sandwichs but we got no miniburgers and sandwichs gone. She said 'too bad' they will not restock it. So I told her that what she said is not true. She said it 'WAS' true but the sanwichs and miniburgers are all gone now..... within 30minutes of the entrance charge. Its a place with a nice view but lousy everything else. The service was slow and rude. The drinks were very bad. The things they promised were lies. I like the view but I wont go back. It is a waste of a good view, dear. Do avoid Vue bar.

10 stars for the view! Fortunately we went on a clear night. We didn't see anyone in the hot tub, but it's a fun touch. The prices are quite high. But you are paying for the view at Vue. The service was ok, considering. We had some snacks which were not really noteworthy. I give 5 stars for Quality because of the top quality of the view.

In the afternoon, there's a 100 RMB entrance fee for VUE Bar (for non-hotel guests) that includes one free drink, either champagne or your choice of cocktail. As a foreigner or "expat", I think it's great value! While the drink itself was quite mediocre (I had the Parisienne and my company had a glass of champagne), the view was absolutely stunning. I was there for a few hours so I got to see the sun go down and the landscape change. I was also able to enjoy two rest beds and some snacks while there. The service was great and we learned a lot about nearby restaurants and attractions from the head of security (he's multi-talented because he also made drinks)! We made great conversation with other tourists and/or expats on business trips. We are planning to go back and I have told friends about the bar, too.

Can't speak about the drinks downstairs, but the drinks being served at the sort of makeshift bar upstairs (where the popular terrace is) were pretty average. Rum and coke for 80 kuai plus service charge and a long island ice tea same price were okay, but way short of 5 star bund quality and certainly short of the price point. Recommend fighting the crowds downstairs to get signature martinis rather than overpriced mixers up top.

They had an amazing view of the Bund and Pudong. Unfortunately, when I went, their AC was broken and it was tortuous. On the other hand, the decor is very good and I imagine it'd be a very cool place when chilled.

Astonishing view, drinks not so. If you want to spend warm night on the tarrace with splendour atmosphere, definetely go. Better view than any other 'high floor' bar.

Great view - good music and good cocktails at this Bundside venue. go mid week with guests from outside Shanghai - or dress up and get glamourous for a Saturday night... either way u will have a great time. If you need dinner options - go downstairs to XINDALU for divine Beijing duck and chinese food... hits the spot before getting in that glass lift and shooting for the 32nd floor... to Vue

What happened?! Since I reviewed Vue Bar more than 3 weeks ago, I always rave about its stunning view accompanied by great drinks, and have gone back twice with groups of friends and visitors. But just like this volatile city, nothing remains constant. Not that the beautiful view has disappeared or changed, but the standard of the drinks have slipped! On my second visit, I faithfully ordered what came highly recommended on my list - the rum and kiwi caipirinha. Most disappointedly, the drink tasted nothing like what I had the very first time; it was simply bland. I mentioned this to the waitress as I placed my second order and, lo and behold, the caipirinha she served was alcoholic! As far as I know, everyone else's drinks also became very strong for the rest of the night. However, a good cocktail is all about the right ratio and not the amount of alcohol in it. Believing it was just a bad day at Vue Bar, I went back again with some friends last night. The waitress at the bar seemed to have no clue what she was doing, because I had to repeat my order three times even though I actually pointed it out on the menu for her. After waiting by the bar for about 10 minute, the bartender has simply disappeared and the very waitress was totally oblivious of my presence. When eventually I got my drink, it was decent. Soon I moved on to my second drink, and that was when things started to go wrong, again. The caipirinha tasted of lime and soda water only, and when I went back to the bar with it the waiter simply poured more alcohol in it. It tasted awful and insipid nevertheless. Like I said, it is all about the ratio. So what has happened since my initial visit? To quote a friend of mine: “The place has gone mainstream.” The number of customers has picked up rapidly over the past few weeks during the Tuesday Happy Hour, and the standard of the drinks has sadly taken a nosedive.

This bar never disappoints. Last night had probably the beat view in all of Shanghai with my girlfriend at the Pommery party. The waitstaff is attentive and unobtrusive, kept my glass full all night. The music was sexy and upbeat without being cheesy or painfully hip. The place was crowded enough to feel happening, but not so crowded to be loud or annoying. Just a perfect place for a perfect evening

Good venue, but HORRIBLE service. Messed up our reservation and didn't have enough alternative seating for 18 ppl. Ridiculously hot but we were told it was at its lowest temperature. We had to ask for buckets of ice and mixers multiple times although it is supposedly included in our purchase of several bottles of vodka and champagne. We lost an iPhone there, and management's response was so slow. Although we spoke plain and simple Chinese, she couldn't seem to understand the situation. She didn't seem upset or concerned that there was thieft in her bar.

Having always heard about the great view of the Bund from Vue Bar, a friend and I decided to check it out one evening. It was a Tuesday, so special fruity caipirinhas were on the menu for a mere 40RMB! We tried the rum and kiwi as well as vodka and mango combinations and decided we love the former the best as it's not too sweet and the kiwi complements the drink well. The staff were friendly and polite, and the venue has a very chilled out atmosphere. The music was just loud enough to be heard in the background, thus making it perfect for conversations. Perhaps the only thing I've something to say about was the fact that it was rather difficult to navigate through the maze-like partitions to find the bathroom after having one too many delicious caipirinhas.

Well designed, great view but plagued with the shanghai bad service syndrome. We were a group of 10, reserved tables, purchased multiple bottles of vodka &champagne and the service crap. We had to walk up to the bar to purchase mixers, ask for more ice or clean glasses. We were told AC was on full but it was an uncomfortable30 degrees inside. Honestly, when will companies invest in decent managers and service training for their staff?

**Where You Drink, Ryan Hemmert; Issue 18** "If I'm after glamor and sophistication then I head for Vue Bar atop Hyatt on the Bund. Sip an orange-flavored Mandarito and check out, hands down, the best view in the city of both sides of the Bund."
