Opened in 1926, this sweeping neoclassical clubhouse, with its colonnaded second floor and baroque flourishes, was one of the most luxurious of its day. It had an indoor swimming pool, billiards room, lawn tennis courts and one of the most spectacular ballrooms in the city. After 1949, it became the Jin Jiang Club and was also used by late Chairman Mao Zedong as a guesthouse during his visits to Shanghai. Today's luxurious Okura Garden Hotel was erected in 1989, incorporating the clubhouse. The stairs in the east entrance lobby, leading to the second floor, vividly reflect the popular art deco trend of old Shanghai. With extensive use of the era's design elements, the remarkable place is worth a visit, combining the best of classical elegance and modern comfort.
