    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Dada is a classic Shanghai dive bar / small-club that has local DJs spinning house and underground dance music Thursday-Saturday. Situated in the middle of Xingfu Lu, it caters to a younger Chinese and expat crowd in a comfortable, pretentious-free environment. Drinks are cheap (30-40rmb), there's ample lounge seating, and music varies from night to night depending on whose playing. The club is managed by a Shanghai-based independent promoter, so expect the DJ/music crowd lounging therein. They've got deals on Vedett, Beer Lao, cheap Tiger drafts, cheap mixes, and changing drink specials. Friday and Saturday are always busy by midnight, whereas Thursdays are totally hit or miss. Recommended.
