Opened in June 2010 during the World Expo, the design and style of the hotel is contemporary with hints of new interpretations of 1930’s Shanghai Art Deco. This gives a great sense of place to the hotel as guest rooms and restaurants embrace magnificent sweeping views over The Bund – the most intact collection of Art Deco architecture anywhere in the world.

Jin Xuan Chinese Restaurant

Ascending to the 53rd floor, the elevator passes through the promenade before arriving at the restaurant's luxurious retro lobby. The floral background lights and wisteria reflect each other, and the two-seater small round tables are interlaced on the arc-shaped decks. As the proud work of Hong Kong architect Steve Leung, Jin Xuan's interior design is sophisticated in every respect. Located in an area with a complete view of the Bund, the interior decoration and the beautiful scenery of Shanghai are mutually radiant and vibrant. It is an ideal choice for social celebrities and business stars of the city.

As a "cloud restaurant" specializing in authentic Cantonese cuisine, Jin Xuan has taken great pains to set various menus. Here, experienced chefs take different taste preferences into account, and the good Cantonese flavor touches all taste buds in the cloud. In addition, the subtlety of Jin Xuan lies in its exquisite attention to the Chinese tea ceremony. Depending on the dishes ordered by the guests, it provides the most appropriate tea mix and serves it in hot pots.

A representation of one of the most famous Chinese paintings, "The Night Revels of Han Xizai," adorns one wall of the restaurant. As a serial handscroll, the original painting depicts the Han Xizai family having a banquet in the Southern Tang Dynasty. To avoid the suspicion of Li Yu, the last emperor of the Southern Tang Dynasty, Han Xizai held the banquet every night. The picture depicts the whole process of a banquet in Han's home. Artisans etched an enlarged copy of the painting onto glass to emphasize the excellence of Jin Xuan as a place to entertain guests and friends. "The Night Revels of Han Xizai" is not just decoration. It also serves as the door to a large wine cabinet, which is neatly lined with more than 360 kinds of wine and a total of more than 2,000 bottles.

The hall of Jin Xuan can accommodate 52 guests for dining at a time. In addition, there are eight private rooms that can accommodate a minimum of six to a maximum of 40 guests.

Aura Lounge & Jazz Bar

Located on the hotel’s 52nd floor lobby level is Aura Lounge & Jazz Bar. Its contemporary décor with small nuances of Art Deco influenced furnishings and art pieces pays homage to the flamboyant era spanning 1920s and 1930s in Shanghai – the golden age of the city. 

Aura is an ideal venue for enjoying a relaxing get-together with friends or meeting business acquaintances over seasonal afternoon tea sets. Dimly lit with awe-inspiring views over the Shanghai skyline, in the evening the mood is more romantic as live Jazz is played. The lounge area of Aura can seat up to 105 guests, with a further 10 at the bar counter.
