Uniimpressed by the hotel and rooms, i expected this to be bad and was pleasantly surprised: Service was speedy and patient, with excellent value small bites and cocktails. Did NOT stay for the live jazz music, because it's jazz and that's awful. But hey, some people enjoy it. Good for you, if that's you.

Whole hotel has become an Insta-trap although staff are quick at stopping those who are excessive. Has not retained the charm of what it once was but it is making a very good attempt. Long Bar opens at 5pm. Good choice of cocktails, well stocked bar, some bottled beers, oyster table. Blues quartet playing throughout the evening makes for easy listening but does not distract from conversation or people watching. Makes for great pre or post dinner drinking. Would def visit again.

Went to the bar last night as part of a birthday celebration. Have been many times and had wonderful experiences. However, last night the drinks were beyond sub par. The signature "dry" martini was served with way too much vermouth each time. The bar staff was also using olives with pits as the garnish. Literally the kind of olives used for snacks. They said it was a supply issue, which I find to be a terrible excuse for service. You can literally go anywhere in Shanghai and find proper olives. Overall drinks were not up to par for the 150RMB prices. Also the band was far too loud. Live music is great, but we should still be able to hear each other speak, rather than the speakers blasting. Would think again before returning, there are better places on the bund.

I've been coming to Long Bar since 2016 on a fairly regular basis. The venue really is amazing, and the staff are great. However, what has gone down is the quality of the drinks. This is the third time I have been in the past year and they are struggling with a very basic dry martini....which is what they are known for. In prior trips, they served it with olives that had pits (odd for a martini bar), then they served it with olives that literally still had oil on them (the kind for snacks, not drinks), this time they served it with BLACK olives. You cannot tell me that the Waldorf Astoria cannot source martini olives. So it's been a bit disappointing since 2021. Oddly enough this weekend they also advised me there is now a 3,000RMB minimum spend to be seated on one of the couches. That's an astronomical amount for a small group just having a few drinks. Unless they want people so drunk they don't notice the lack of quality. Especially since the bar is literally never busy ....one would think they would welcome more patrons. It's truly a shame. Another Shanghai institute quickly going downhill.

One more time and maybe not the last one I wanna say big thanks to this amazing place. For the amazing attitude of all staff and the whole atmosphere. It’s always a big pleasure to visit the Long bar. Just such a pity it working just till 12:30. We wanted to stay there longer, but it’s impossible. Thank you, guys, for your great job. Coz the place is just about amazing people who working over there! ❤️

Had my first visit to The Long Bar at the Waldorf Astoria situated on The Bund after visiting Shanghai for over 30 years! Found it on Tripadvisor and its a great bar to visit as is the hotel. Full of charm and a lovely setting which takes you back in time. Nice friendly and efficient service. Great choice of drinks, you do pay a bit more but it is worth it for the setting. Be warned only opens at 6pm.

I had just read about this bar before coming to Shanghai and loved the atmosphere and history of the bar. The bar dates back to 1911 and the menu highlights who invited which cocktail or what inspired cocktails like a Colonel Sanders Margherita from when he visited China to bring KFC here! The bar is long and the service is fantastic. Expect to pay more than 100 RMB for a cocktail and around 50 RMB for a non-alcoholic drink. The drinks are served with small bar snacks and there are some pretty good menu items. They do offer free flow some days and include snacks with drinks - this might be worth exploring if you want an option that is easier on the wallet...or digital payment platform.

Long Bar is a must do when you’re in Shanghai. The cocktails are fantastic. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. And of course you have to sit at the bar, because that’s what this place is all about.

If you’re in the area and have the time, this is a good stop by. Have a well made cocktail. Oysters flown in from around the world. Sit down and have a nice visit. Go somewhere else for loud, flashy fun. Come here just to get to walk through this fabulous property.
