Paris Saint-Germain, sometimes abbreviated Paris SG or just PSG, is the single most successful French football club in history. They won the UEFA cup in '95, and it's the club Neymar plays for now. In the past. More recently, also beat Arsenal in the time-honored competition of "who opens a flagship in shanghai first."
While the Arsenal Club Shanghai on Rockbund is looking like this...
Sorry, Gunners. Opening later in June, probably
Paris St. Germain's spot is looking like this;
Nice, right? Amazing what they can put in a mall these days. They've got three indoor 3v3 cage match pitches, and two outdoor pitches set on the mall's roof garden. One of them's big enough to play 5v5. Pitch prices are as follows;
3v3 - 98rmb/player
5v5 - 100rmb/player
includes a 45 minute game and a coupon at the St. Germain Bar
Off Peak - Mon-Fri, noon-5pm
3v3 - 45rmb/player
5v5 - 50rmb/player
includes a 45 minute game
There's also a set-up to play FIFA on Xbox, and the St. Germain bar's serving up basic cocktails for 60rmb and a quartet of 78rmb signature cocktails (El Grego, El Falco, El Fenomeno, El Brasileno), as well as beer and wine.
So How Do I Get In?
Head around back, where Yude Lu meets Wending Lu, and head down the service road around the back.
Just waltz right in past the security guard. If he stops you, just chant "Si t'es fier d'être parisien," I'm sure he knows that one. The elevator is immediately to the left, across from the Starbucks. It's a big janky, you might have to hit the button a few times. And don't mind the haunting, gaping vacancy that is the rest of the mall. The main doors'll be open to the public in two or three weeks, they said.
St. Germain is located on the 3rd floor of the new (and very not done yet) Nanyang 1931 mall
