    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Sophisticated but unpretentious, nice but not too expensive, this lounge bar is serial China restaurateur Michelle Garnaut's sequel to her popular Glamour Bar, which closed after a successful run from 2006-2014, when the landlord tried to triple the rent. Whereas Glamour Bar was on the 6th floor of this early 20th Century building, Glam occupies what used to be a room for private functions, just opposite her flagship restaurant M On The Bund, which, in 1999, was the first fine dining establishment to open on the Bund after China's re-opening.

      It's a beautiful space, filled with gorgeously mismatched chairs and dozens of pieces from Michelle's private art collection, which, despite coming from at least ten different countries, manage to all fit together.

      For drinks, there's an extensive cocktails list, which is a bit hit and miss, and a large selection of wine. Food is mostly small plates like blood sausage and Asian dishes with western influences, like a Thai-style king crab omelet and a Peking duck pie that's definitely worth ordering. The crowd is a bit older and more literate than perhaps most Bund places -- this is, after all, the home of the yearly erotic fiction competition, and Michelle also runs the Shanghai International Literary Fest. It's a place to come and chat with friends, not to rage -- definitely don't expect DJs dropping EDM here. What you'll get are nice playlists of jazz and some funk. Fine place for a date or sealing a business deal, and you'll likely to meet some cool characters with good stories here.
