These seem to be restored and maybe in some cases modified homes that date back to the time of the French Concession in Shanghai. My local Chinese guide did not know of this area, and she felt that the area had a more "European" feel to it; due to the large European-style homes located in the area. You can also visit the one-time home of Premier Zhou En Lai while in the area, and take a self-guided tour inside of his one time residence. Numerous Western-style eateries in the area, even a "Fatburger"! Another relaxing aside and stroll that sits in the center of Shanghai, yet somehow compartmentalized into its own quiet and relaxing area.

Just a hundred steps away from the Huaihai Road station of the Metro, this beautiful row of French villas turned into bars and restaurants entices visitors from around the globe.

Starbucks here is truly quaint as it is every inch, French. The paths are nice and the ambience reminds us of the cultural strands that shaped Shanghai to what it is today.

Snap a selfie in its lush gardens. Take delight in the vines that smolder the walls of some structures. The trees along the roads also make this charming community a haven for nature-lovers.

The restaurants, though, are above mid in terms of pricing. Dishes and drinks are way too expensive so, have a full meal before heading there.

The Sinan Mansions are a series of Western European buildings from the 1920s. It is quite a small area that it covers and has a nice intimate feel to it. There is a small museum telling of the history of the mansions along with its famous former residents. There are bars and food places...and two giant pianos that you play by standing / jumping on them. A lovely little area this with a lovely feel to it.

A few blocks of former French Concession have been newly renovated into its original
1920 French style, now called Sinan Open Air Museum (思南露天博物馆, 思南公馆). There are over 50 unique buildings, each is very elegant. Now all buildings host some fancy stores or restaurant/cafe. There is also a bookshop. Very pleasant to spend some time there.

Actually, it’s high on my list of neighborhoods in Shanghai, with all these cozy buildings, reminding strongly of some great parts of Europe.
For an architecture junkie, it’s pure delight. Or an amazing place to walk around, have a tea or a coffee of some food, or simply enjoy a fine day.

Another special little spot in Shanghai. Apparently all the buildings were taken down and rebuilt 90 degrees towards the street but it is a nice place to spend a few hours at restaurants or the shops. The Starbucks is located in one of the old homes so it is an easy way to check out the inside! The gardens are lovely and sheltered from the sun with waterfalls and ponds so it is worth making a trip here

Had a good stroll along Sinan Road, passing former residence of PRC first Premier Zhou Enlai, and into Sinan Mansions. Lots of restaurants and cafe, very history enclave within the city of Shanghai.

I walked through here on a Friday night and while the architecture was nice I really didn’t see much of interest. There were stores and a number of bars and restaurants. Some had interesting names like Boxing Cat Brewery or Hitachino Brewing Lab. If in the area then visit otherwise I don’t see this as a must see place.

Sinan Mansions on Sinan Lu boost a collection of mansions for Shanghai’s elite. In fact, it’s just down the road from the former residence of China’s premier Zhao Enlai and Sun Yat Sen. But it doesn’t always look this way, while the architectural design is the same, the entire area has actually been gentrified. Rebuilt from scratch, with clean alignments, Sinan Mansion is now a collection of high end dining experiences. It projects a perception of restoration and preservation but it’s not quite it. To me, this is the interesting paradox.
