Privy 5 Overview

Share |

At the heart of central Shanghai’s French concession, you will find a small and quaint lounge named Velvet. Frequented by the locals, this place has the best cocktails and the best pizza in Shanghai (2009 City Weekend Awards). They take pride in giving their customers the very best in service, food and drinks. Equipped with stunning décor, appropriate lighting, and superb sound system, it’s no wonder this has become one of the hottest night spots in Shanghai. Sip on your favorite smooth beverage while munching on their irresistible thin-crust pizzas. Couple this with a nice chill out music and this place is a perfect hideout! If you prefer a full meal on the other hand, upstairs you will find Casanova, an Italian restaurant. They also serve the popular thin-crust pizza plus some sumptuous multi-course Italian meals. They also offer Caesar salads and varieties of breads. Though not exactly the hippest place compared to those on the Bund, it’s still a nice hang-out place in the neighborhood. The Velvet Lounge and Casanova pair can be found just along Julu Rd., entertaining guests with different vibes each night: come on Wednesdays and it’s hip hop and RnB, Thursdays are Swedish Erotica nights with funky soulful tunes, and weekends are old school, Latin, and funk music.
