A staple of the Italian community Club MAO on Dongping Lu packs in the clubbers every weekend for their themed parties. Expects lots of heavy thump-thump-thump Euro electro and the models that frequently come with that style of club. This one stays open real late with the dance floor packed until 7am. It's usually free entrance for ladies with men left with a cover charge and a free drink for their troubles.
In from Belgium, legendary electronic duo The Glimmers on the decks at Mao. Tickets are 100rmb pre-sale (email clubmaoshanghai @ gmail.com). Or 150rmb at the door. Gets going after midnight. Runs late, late, late.
