The Ritz Bar & Lounge combines Art Deco of the 20s and 30s with touches and elements of glitzy Shanghai during this era, reflecting the theme of "Ye Shanghai" or "Shanghai Nights." Promising to be a first call for global travelers, this focal venue segues from elegant lounge by day to sexy cocktail bar by night. Clientele is mainly hotel guests and some well-heeled locals who enjoy a peaceful drink in a laidback environment. They also hold semi-regular guest shifts and bar pop-ups from some big name bars around the world. The "Hidden Bar" located behind the velvet curtain to the left opens later in the evening and offers more complex cocktails.
