Top choice live music in West Shanghai

Small enough to feel intimate, but big enough for a sometimes pulsating atmosphere, Yùyīntáng has long been one of the top places in the city to see live music. Any Shànghǎi rock band worth its amps plays here, but you can also catch groups on tour from other cities in China, as well as international acts. Rock is the staple diet, but anything goes, from hard punk to jazz.
