If you were in Shanghai from 2010 to 2017, you might have graced the doors of The Apartment. The NYC SoHo-inspired lounge/restaurant was a go-to for cocktails and dance parties. It closed in 2017 after seven years on Yongfu Lu.
Well, The Apartment has made a comeback, and has reopened on Huaihai Zhong Lu. Plus, they have some sweet soft opening deals.

Inside The Apartment
Part lounge, part club, part restaurant, The Apartment takes residence on Huaihai Zhong Lu, on the second floor above the Popeyes flagship.
It aims to be more laid back than other clubs and has ample room on the floor for those with dancing shoes on.
The main room is mostly lounge space sectioned off with a Gallery, an elevated platform for VIP seating, a long bar, a “Conservatory” for early evening dining, and a terrace. There’s also a private room aka the “Study Room” with a small terrace.
For entertainment, they’ve kept the hallmark baby grand piano (the old location had one) for performances, which will also include jazz, Latin music, and house and guest DJs.
The Food: What’s On The Menu
The Apartment is currently in soft opening, but they will have a full menu of internationally inspired dishes. They also have wood oven-fired pizzas, a staple of the original.
On the menu are snacks and appetizers aka finger foods for the drinking crowd, but also salads and soups, pizzas and burgers, alongside steaks and whole roasted chickens.
The Drinks: Easy To Drink Cocktails
They have a full cocktail menu of all the staples plus classic cocktails with a modern twist. All ingredients and syrups for the cocktails are freshly made. These are easy to drink, fun, and lively cocktails. They’re not reinventing the wheel here, but it’s a good balancing act of variety and affordability— cocktails start at ¥78.
Other drinks include Heineken (¥48), house wines (¥68), and the requisite bottles of liquor.
Gossip Ladies’ Night: Every Thursday from 9-11pm, FREE free-flow sparkling wine or Spritzer for all ladies.
For soft opening, The Apartment is offering 40% off all house pours, house wine, and selected beer, every Monday to Friday from 5-8pm. There’s also 20% off all food from 5pm-late every day. These will continue until Grand Opening.
