The Waldorf Astoria sits on the Bund #295 in the building that formerly housed the Shanghai Club, one of the most exclusive private clubs in old Shanghai. The club was set up for wealthy British businessmen and included a library, rooms and the Long Bar #278. The hotel itself is now one of the most luxurious in Shanghai and the old building connects with a new, modern building with an entrance on Sichuan Road. Stay at the hotel or visit for a drink to experience the stunning architecture and history of the building.
