It's true. Unable to extend their contract. Due to issues outside of their control.
Shanghai's first Paulaner
, open for 19 years, located on Fenyang Lu closes on Friday; going down with the German restaurant are sister venues Ambrosia Teppenyaki & Yakiniku
and their Deli & Bakery
, all also located at 150 Fenyang Lu.
Paulaner and Ambrosia's parent BNL Restaurants tells us that their Oktoberfest and Christmas market will move to Paulaner's Expo
location. A bit of a trek for fans of those two events, but the good news is that they are indeed still happening, and BNL tells us that the Expo location is more than capable to handle them.
Still left on the Puxi side is Paulaner Xintiandi
. You can get your last fill of Paulaner on Fengyang Lu today and tomorrow.
No word yet on what's going to be happening with that prime piece of property...
