Cici – The New Money.

By Mark Andrews

City Weekend (Shanghai). 05/07/2007

Bar review of Cici, a now closed down club, in Shanghai.

This club is a mystery. Vast amounts of money have been spent on it but the question is why? With names of cocktails like Warm Dior this place seems aimed at local nouveau riche. However on a Saturday night visit it was empty with more staff than customers. There is no dance floor and the club seems to consist of tables and chairs. It is lit by red neon tubing and led panels there are big screens playing hip hop videos. The music is not overbearingly loud. Two bars are filled with juggling tenders. Some items on the menu reach well into the thousands. Cocktails and beer are around Y50. This club is best left to the whisky and green tea crowd.
