Things to do in Shanghai on a Friday

Things to do in Shanghai on a Friday

The weekend is officially upon us so there is absolutely no reason for you to go out there and treat, enjoy and indulge yourself in all this amazing city has to offer! Luckily, you have us to guide you through the best summer weekend in the big, bad city.

The sun is still out in Shanghai which obviously should lead you to think ROOFTOP. The Boxing Cat Brewery is the perfect place to go after your wild night out on Thursday and to start your day anew on Friday. Prices start around 45 RMB for their buttermilk pancakes , the chicken and waffles for 90RMB and if you’re looking for some egg-celent eggs, then the braised shortrib Benedict is at 95RMB. This place also offers sandwiches, burgers and snacks on their lovely balcony looking out to the beautiful Fuxing Lu.

 (Boxing Cat Brewery is at 82 Fuxing Xi Lu, near Yongfu Lu, Xuhui district.)

 As September is the season of Art in Shanghai, we have the perfect idea for you! Art in the City Festival will be taking place at the K11 Art Space with public art displays, exclusive parties and essentially their free hop-on hop –off bus tours. The free bus tours will take place over three weekends in September and will take the keen art lovers to the city’s art hot spots, this includes M50 art district, Power Station of Art, Shanghai Exhibition Centre and The West Bund Art Area. Tickets are available at K11 Mall.

(Date: Sat 10 Sep - Sun 25 Sep (Every weekend), Event admission: 200-350RMB. Event website:

 If you’re looking for something different to eat in Shanghai then head to Ruijun Cajun.  The authentic creole and Cajun flavoured based restaurant has taken Shanghai by storm. The American, Creole cooking began in New Orleans and this restaurant lets you try American goodness such as New Orleans BBQ style shrimp for 108 RMB, creole fried chicken at 55 RMB and other amazing dishes at a reasonable price.

It's Friday so what else should you do on a Friday evening? Go out of course! TURNT UP is a commercial hip hop and R&B crowded party at Monkey Champagne, it has been running for the last five years and its it’s too fun to miss. At the moment the deal is free entry before midnight if you email the otherwise it is 100RMB including two drinks. It starts at 10pm and goes on till late.
