While in Shanghai, my friends and I visited M18, Bar Rouge, Mint, Muse and Propaganda, based on the recommendations of others. M18 is definitely my favourite out of the lot. I went there three times in the five weeks we had in Shanghai, on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Thursday is Electro Swing night; it was pretty empty, and the music was not the best. Friday and Saturday nights were far better. There were many more people, and the DJ played more 'commercial' music that we knew and could dance to. The first night I went, there were silver helium balloons with streamers all over the ceiling, and the second night I went, the bouncer let us dance on the table right in front of the DJ's table. The third time I went to celebrate my birthday, and the promoter put my name up on the big screen behind the DJ. All three times I went there were laser lights and professional dancers.

Overall, the atmosphere and music was great, and the dance floor is not huge but good enough. The club has a fancy and unique air about it, but it's still lots of fun. It helps a lot to know a promoter, as it is quite exclusive. That was how we got in, but if you are a group of attractive girls, it will really help. I have never tried to get in with boys in the group, so not sure how that works.

Will definitely revisit when I'm in Shanghai!

I come sometime in Shanghai for business trip, I spend time in bar, night club at each trip.

I was at M18 last week, I didn't drunk a lot like usually, but this time after back at the hotel I was super sick, locked in the toilet room, and after that, I had to call an ambulance, they bring me at the hospital.

The Dr told me I have an infection because I drunk adulterated alcohol. I precise I ONLY drink at M18, that why I write this comment. I hope that's not happen every time... But for sure the Alcohol is fake Alcohol like in a lot of Club in China.

So be careful, that's can be very dangerous. I advise you to drink only pure alcohol, it's better to detect Bad or Fake Alcohol !

Have fun in Shanghai !

Hello Jean F, First of all, thanks so much for your comment and input, we appreciate to have customers reviews which allows us to improve our service. However, we pay very much attention to our alcohol, thats why we directly get it from suppliers who have a system with bar code seals which are all scanned in and out to fight the manner of fake alcohol in China. Sorry again for your bad experience and your troubles but it is extremely unlikely because of your consumption at M18. Thank you.

Pretty neat place to party your heart and soul out. It`s quiet new, right beneath the famous Bar Rouge. Beautiful interior, Bund view...and the music depending on the DJ that`s playing.

My experience with M18 was one of the worst I have had in Shanghai. I went to M18 and at first was very impressed by the nice atmosphere and great music. As a bisexual man in Shanghai, I had never had any problems dancing in clubs with guy friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, friend girls, etc. (I like dancing), so when I started dancing with a guy friend of mine, I was startled when I was target by four large bouncers and pulled by the arm from the dance floor. They took me and the friend with whom I was dancing to the back and gave us a "talk" about how it was not okay to be anything but heterosexual. After the talk, they forced us to leave, and when we tried to tell my other friends on the way out (they were still on the dance floor), the four bouncers pulled us back by the arms, escorted us away from our friends, into an elevator, and onto the streets. We were treated like second-class citizens.

Of course, this type of homophobia is very common and is not just specific to M18. Frankly, I cannot be truly angry at the owners of M18 or the bouncers who treated me and my friend like dogs. They simply have not had the education to allow them to see past the systemic homophobia that shaped their worldview. But I am writing this because I feel it is important to make public these types of hate crimes and warn others of the bias they may experience at any club in Shanghai if they were not lucky enough to be born as a heterosexual male or woman.
