Thursday is the new Friday. Doesn’t matter if you have to wake up and drag yourself to work the next day.

UP Shanghai has just kicked off their Supper Thursdays, featuring two fat set menus of carb-loaded comfort food and bocktails to start the weekend early. It’s basically dinner with punchy cocktails and a DJ on deck.
