Terrace 8 is Jing’an district’s best-kept secret—it’s a sprawling rooftop terrace in downtown Shanghai at The Portman Ritz-Carlton. (That’s at the Shanghai Centre.)

Previously open to the hotel’s residents, the terrace has been spruced up for the season and is open to the public, complete with cushioned lawn chairs and patio umbrellas courtesy of Moët & Chandon sprawled across meticulously trimmed lawn.

If you’re thinking about blowing off work, this would be the place to do it. And do it quick while the weather is good! I spent a sunny afternoon nibbling through the sweets and savories, a little disappointed that I didn’t opt to wear a sundress/cancel my meetings for the day. (Ideas. Hint, hint.)

Terrace 8 opens from April 17! And it will be open from 2:30pm on weekends.
