The name indicates that it's quite possibly the highest bar in Shanghai, providing a distinctive perch overlooking the whole city, divided by the Huangpu River.
The floor is separated into two areas, each with a different concept and ambience: the Music Room is a contemporary Western bar featuring resident DJ and creative cocktails; the Shanghai Lounge is cozy and Oriental, with Chinese red leather decorating a complete wall and serving up baijiu (Chinese distilled rice liquor).
When and where to see the best view: Booth tables in the Music Room offer the bestview of Puxi.
Signature cocktail: Ginger Pina Mojito, in which Cuban rum is infused with raw ginger for a fortnight before it's being combined with fresh roasted pineapple, lime and mint. The ginger flavor provides a warm touch on a cold winter's evening.
Carson Xie is good at using natural and seasonal ingredients to balance flavors and keep the drinks interesting and innovative.
Wine list highlights: Biodynamic wines account for almost 75 percent of the wine list, which also shows the sommelier's preference for low-yield varieties.
Must-see view inside the bar: The bar ceiling, features an artwork by Chinese artist Liu Jianhua composed of objects used by locals in the 1980s - such as a cup and hot water bottle. It is intended to convey happiness.
Must-try entertainment: GMac Duo Band, a rock band who play every Monday and Tuesday.
Valuable bar experience: Ladies Night held every Wednesday, from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. Every female customer is given free flow of sparkling wine.
