O'Malley's Bar, French Concession.

French Concession

The city's most stylish side, the former French Concession is where much of Shanghai’s disposable cash is splashed. The low-rise, villa-lined leafy backstreets are perfectly geared to shopping, dining and entertainment, but a brood of museums make the former concession – now a handsome melange of several distinct neighbourhoods – a cultural experience as well.
