    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Well-designed, casual French bar and lounge with a great rooftop that has one of the best views in town. The guy who started this used to be with Dr. Wine, then broke off to start his own spot. The place is warm, with wooden floors, exposed bricks, and long, communal tables. Wine is the focus, though there's a substantial menu of French food. Don't get put off by the sketchy elevator -- the place is really nice. A good bet for happy hour on the roof in the warmer months.

      Kartel turns Tuesday into a Friday night every week with a Champagne deal. Every Tuesday night, after work, ladies of three get a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Rosé for the exceptional price of 300rmb. Deal available from 6pm.

    I went a few nights ago. The service was good, very fast and helpful with refills.

    I orderd the Russian Salad, not sure what the means. The salad was a mixture of potato salad and chick peas topped with peppers and canned tuna fish with a garnish of lettuce. I was really expecting the majority of my salad to actually have lettuce, but not so much. If you are up for Russian food, don't try this.

    The atmosphere was good, with the exception of the Electric Tennis Racket Welding bar tender who was swatting away at flying bugs around the bar. You know those insect killing tennis rackets that have batteries and when turned on it sends electricity through the wire mesh and kills bugs. He was swatting away a few bugs when I entered Kartel, then he put his bug frying tennis racket on to of the bar in the back area. Not as close to where the people were sitting at the bar. (He was thoughtful). Now these bug zapping tennins rackets are commonly seen on the streets of Shanghai where you can order grilled chicken on a stick and enjoy a cold beer with the locals while you lounge away in the plastic chairs. Not something that is accpetable at a venue like Kartel, especially taking into consideration that the bar tender was inside, not the roof top bar tender.
    Nice place for private parties!

    I have to say, Kartel is one of my favorite places to enjoy casual time with my friends. They got the best sangria in Shanghai! I just had my birthday party on the rooftop with Kartel last week. They did a really good job. There were a lot of people coming to the rooftop, but the manager came to check with us to make sure we are ok all the time. The finger foods they provided are also delicious. Definitely will keep coming back!

    Went in, asked for table, but staff said - all reserved, even half of the tables are free, only a bar seat is free. We still made to a table at a corner - far behind..
    the cocktail arrived with a HAIR inside. we send it back. the next thing was a bit of a surprise, as the venue presents itself as international, but..
    by accident we watched the cocktail with the hair going back to the bar. they took the hair out, flush the drink back to the cocktail container, add some ice and start shaking. he was about to put the drink back to the glass, when i showed up and questioned him. First moment he was surprised. the manager came, he actually saw the whole process and for a moment he denied that we get the same drink, but admitted rather fast.
    After such incidence you would think - the service should be friendly, but it became worse. new drink took 20 minutes, for them - nothing happened.
    service was bad in general - every time i was there before. Hygiene - i need to question now.
    Kartel - no more for me
