I finished my day with a drink before dinner at the Peace Hotel (和平飯店) on the Bund (外灘). just been renovated and reopened in Jun this year, the Peace hotel has once again become one of the highlights of the city. the bygone era of old Shanghai is vividly invoked with the 15m tinted glass skylight at the atrium.

dinner at Lan Club Shanghai - a four-story baroque building on Guangdong Road (within the Bund area) putting restaurant, lounge and bar under one roof. famed as one of the most premium places to be since its opening in 08, created by top international interior designers Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier (apprentices of Philippe Starck), the decor is stylish western interpretation of the Chinese elements. I had Sichuan / Shanghainese food there that night, the food was pretty good and I would deem them as fusion Chinese since the presentation was very innovative, not traditional at all!
