Popular outpost of a Parisian club that also has venues in New York, Tokyo, and London. Crowd is mixed Chinese and foreign, and tends to be fashion, music, or other industry peeps. Music is generally decent; they play mostly old school disco, classics, and hip hop, but depending on the night they may have some more avant garde guest. Some people dance, others just chill at tables poppin' bottles. There's also a rooftop garden. Cocktails are 80-100rmb and not particularly strong, and bottle service of all levels is available. There is a door policy, though it's not super clear. Basically, they let in people who look "cool", which doesn't have to mean wearing a suit and tie. Just don't roll up here with a group of dudes and expect to get in, unless you know someone. Good service. Overall, a unique spot, and a nice alternative to local clubs and really underground places. They're kinda going for that '80s NYC vibe where clued-in wealthy people mix with not-rich young folks who are doing cool shit / driving culture, and sometimes they pull it off.
