I called today to see if this place was still kicking. The lady who answered said they are planning to reopen after Chinese New Year. I would check back after the festival to see if that's the case because in this city you never really know until you see it for yourself. I really hope they are opening soon like... More

We researched the fascinating history of this club online and went over to see it. When we arrived we found the building has been gutted and is under renovation. Could not tell if it was being restored as a landmark, museum or some other commercial property. Stop by in 2016 to see what it has become.

I visited in 2010 and had a super time dancing in the ballroom. It was a beautiful place, almost magical. I recently (April 20150 returned to find it permanantly closed. The front door padalocked but ajar enough to see the lobby full of rubble. I do not think this jewel can recover from it's current condition. It was so beautfil... More

When living in Shanghai (2000-2004) we have been to the Paramount Ballroom. We made a reservation for dinner (not sure the restaurant is still there..) and afterwards went to another floor to have some drinks and watch the local shanghainese ballroom dancing.Really different atmosphere, very much like the 1920's, real artdeco interior and music from another era.. We were the... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
