    3338 4600
    The Living Room by Octave is Shanghai's first holistic well-being center, and lucky for us, they also do food. During brunch, there's a kids room available with a small ball pit and play area, where kids can play as long as they have supervision. The Living Room also has a little library for kids to get in some light Sunday reading. The kid's room is only open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am to 3pm.

    1502 Huaihai Zhong Lu, near Wulumuqi Nan Lu

    淮海中路1502号, 近乌鲁木齐南路

    6437 4219
    People keep returning to this long-running Huaihai Lu restaurant for the food, of course, which is country-style southern French in orientation. Leave it to the French, also, to offer one of the best burgers in town too. Dishes are pared down and straightforward, yet generously portioned. Don’t forget, Cuivre also has a respectable stretch of outdoor seating as well, if you’re looking for another reason to go.

    外滩茂悦大酒店 黄浦路199号, 近武昌路

    6393 1234
    Considered site to some of the best views of the Shanghai skyline, the Hyatt on the Bund has made a big impression on the city's hotel scene. The hotel is in a good spot for many of Shanghai's top tourist spots including Xintiandi, the Shanghai Grand Theatre and various museums; and with three restaurants, tea room, bar, and a beautiful spa, you have all you need to get a good pampering.

    武定路881号2号楼1楼, 近常德路

    6176 1378
    Formerly "Must Wine", Must Grill focuses on meats, burgers, and red wine. Dark wood decor and a nice glassed-in patio area with heat lamps during the winter. It's a casual spot; good for a date, friends, or a bite with the coworkers. They have some unique burger options on the menu with toppings that include salsa, foie gras, fried goat cheese, chili peppers, and others. Price for burgers range from 88-118rmb. A glass of beer or wine starts at 38rmb.

    Kerry Hotel, 1388 Huamu Lu, near Fangdian Lu

    花木路1388号, 近芳甸路

    6169 8888
    The MEAT is the steakhouse wing of the Kerry Hotel's three-three pronged F&B outlet. The decor is best described as a post-modern Texas cattle rancher aesthetic. On offer is house-butchered and aged beef imported from Australia as well as traditional steakhouse side dishes and premium wines.

    长风大悦城2楼, 大渡河路196号, 近云岭东路

    6124 5877
    French bistro with a pretty sweet playhouse, whose French designer apparently has a PhD in child psychology. Seems like it gets pretty packed, they recommend you book in advance, especially on weekends, when seats get a little tight.

    静安区运动健身中心3层(ALDI楼上), 江宁路428号, 近武定路

    5299 5273
    The new Cages is absolutely massive. More than just batting cages, they also have squash courts, a full field for five-a-side soccer and dodgeball, an area for professional darts, a private space for events, more TV screens than a Best Buy, and just everything else one would put in a giant sports cave. The entrance is near the corner of Jiangning Lu and Wuding Lu, near where some sketchy clubs used to be. The elevator there goes up to the third floor. The BBQ is only available on Thursdays from 5pm onwards, so make sure you're going at the right time for a pulled pork taco.
