Cotton Club has been bringing great live funk, soul, and blues to Shanghai since the '90s. If you haven't been, their Sunday night is a fine way to end the week. The music starts around 9pm, there's never a cover (though you'll need to grab a drink, which starts at 60rmb), and it's a hip, mixed crowd. Recommended. Anyone who's lived here long enough knows how good this place is. Owner Greg is usually on hand and has a lot of stories.
