Salon de Ning at The Peninsula
32号 Zhongshan East 1st Road
Salon de NingShanghai’s speakeasy-inspired bars channel the city’s glamorous past, and you don’t need to leave the hotel to experience one of the finest. Follow a carved staircase down to The Peninsula’s basement and step into a darkened corner of Salon de Ning, an opulent den of animal prints, ox-blood hued leather, oiled wood carvings, chandeliers, and rich brocade. It’s an alluring setting that encourages you to linger, preferably over craft cocktails like the signature Ning Sling (featuring Absolut Mandarin and lychee liqueur) while the jazz band performs.
