Last Call: Smash and Arcade Are Closing This Weekend
By Sep 29, 2017 Nightlife
Bad times for smaller dance floors in Shanghai. The "alternative" clubbing scene is losing two this weekend: Arcade and Smash are both hosting their last events tonight (Friday) and tomorrow night (...that would be Saturday). Meanwhile, Celia's management have disclosed on social media that they are remaining closed for this weekend, following on last weekend's police raid, with the future of the club uncertain.


Start with that last thing first. Still nothing concrete has been released as to the future of popular black hole-into-total-enlightenment after hours club Celia. Management have stated that they are not going to be open for this weekend but are optimistic to come back "much stronger". So... new venue? Old venue? We'll see. They'll release a statement soon when the dust settles. )

However. Here's your last chance to get in on these two. Raise a glass for Smash and Arcade.

FUCKN AAA gives Arcade the viking funeral with their resident DJs playing bass, trap, chill, whatever, while you hit the Street Fighter one last time. Jameson shots for 20rmb. "Let's get wild." Indeed. No cover.

The Last Day - STD House Party

Arcade - 2/F, 57 Fuxing Xi Lu, near Yongfu Lu

Arcade shuts down for good with local crew STD throwing one last house part shaker for all the homies. Dazzy, Linfeng, Poptones playing house, techno, electro, whatever. Head down and raise a glass to one of the cooler little local cocktail hang-outs Shanghai produced. Salut. No entry fee. Expect some freeness goin around? Let's hope so.

The Mash

Smash - 685 Dingxi Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu

It’s closing eve at Smash and they’ve lined up a bunch of their residents for a special game night. Each DJ will be playing 3 songs each as they pull a theme out of a hat and have to play tunes accordingly. No matter the theme, the tunes will be fun, those you know and love. GAMES. Go party with the Smash team. It’s your last chance. ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
