    • Editor's Description
      Hidden on the roof of Captain's Hostel, The Captain sportingly provides a cheaper alternative to some of its neighboring bars along The Bund. Comes with a roof terrace and a very nifty view. Nautical-themed decor and a drinks menu averaging in the 70rmb range. Food caters to both the "booze-accompanying nibbles" and "full meal" demographics: Italian Pizza, Tuna Tartare, and Truffled pork dumplings to name a few of the dishes. Popular with work-do's, birthdays and general group gatherings, so if you want a table on the terrace in the evening, best call ahead first.

    • I personally don’t have high hope when it comes to rooftop bars, as they tend to be more for the view than the food, but The Captain Bar definitely has it all! Located on top of a hostel building, The Captain Bar is fun and intriguing from the first step into the building. As you pass through the teeny tiny elevator and the stairway, you’ll see the rooms of the travelers’ and its fun marine decorations.

      I went with a couple of friends who were visiting from Taiwan. Since we didn’t reserve for booking we got the indoor seats (By we I mean me), but the staffs were very welcoming and told us we could move for the terrace once there’s a seat. We arrived at 8 pm at a Saturday night, and waited for around 40 minutes for the view.

      We had a salmon pizza, beans salad, lasagna, and some white wine.  The salad was definitely the highlight of the night with healthy beans and sour dressing. It’s one of the best salads I’ve had in Shanghai! Lasagna was soaked in tasty tomato sauce and they had some garlic bread provided afterwards for the left over sauce. Pizza was pretty standard with good amount of toppings.

      The manager was really friendly and gave recommendations when needed. It was overall a great experience. The place feels really casual and unique with view of the bund, while the terrace isn’t really spacious so definitely book before if you don’t like waiting.

      Price: 150 per person
      Summary: Located on top of Captain Hostel, The Captain Bar offers excellent food with great views of the Bund.
