I saw the Cotton Club reunion here. The venue is nice with table seating and table service. Great venue. I would return for a show to The Pearl.

We attended a 90’s mini-concert in the old 1931 The Pearl cabaret headlined by the band Red Stars and it was a smash.More so, this is a historic building that used to house luxurious cabaret shows during the colonial times.

Enjoyed a show in the pearl for the first time and now want to go again.

There was something magical with the show, not Disney magical but was nice to see even though the club is old the show will bring it alive.

I was in the Pearl last night. It was a great crowd with free flow champagne, canapés and nonstop entertainment. It was an awesome party to celebrate Pearl's 5th Birthday Anniversary.

The Pearl is an Entertainment powerhouse in Shanghai. It's a Canadian House owned by two Canadians and other investors and shareholders. They host all kind of entertainment events all year long. It's not a huge venue. But very unique with a capacity of 500 guests (more or less, depends on the event).

It's located very close to Metro Line 10, Sichuan North Rd station (2/3 minutes walk from exit 2).

Wow! What a place! It's amazing! That was my first expression, when I went to The Pearl first time for a special events (Italian Brand: Asti) months ago. After that, I went to The Pearl many many times. Most recently, a week ago for The French Christmas Market. The Pearl is well known in Shanghai for exotic shows and special events. It's a beautiful place. I love the interior color and lighting inside. Good food, drinks and excellent service. The Pearl has hundreds of repeat visitors like myself. I go to The Pearl at least once or twice a month. Mainly because I like everything about this place. The shows are not my favorite but I like this place more for special events and private corporate events. It's a great place, full of great energy. My most favorite is Movie Night on Tuesday. They always have a great selection. Never a dull moment at The Pearl.

2nd time at pearl. Great music, great drinks at a great price. Met the manager Jeremy. What a great guy. He has a good handle on the operation and came to check on us a few times. Sincere, Friendly and genuine. Bartenders and wait staff were prompt and professional. Drinks were a bargain for Shanghai in comparison to other live music venues. The music wasn't deafening like other places can be in this city. Good AV experience. The woofers may be on the way out, but this was a nitpick and hardly noticeable once the show got going. Decor and set up is really cool. Tad rustic but can accommodate severe types of events. Decent pub grub as well. When you go to Pearl, make sure to be quiet in the way in and out as it is in a bit of a residential area. All in all, what a great night! I plan to make The Pearl part of my regular rotation. Foreign CC are accepted.

We went there for the first time with friends. This was a great surprise, excellent band, great atmosphere. We all danced even after the show with great DJ. The food was simple but good for a cabaret. Nice evening place in Shanghai

Amazing venue, in absolutely one of my favourite place in Shanghai. Excellent food and amazing events. In particular I recommend the burlesque show, with surprising dancers and choreographies.
