Steak in Shanghai Old City

Housed in Hotel Indigo, Char is a wildly pricey steakhouse sensation. Park yourself on a sofa against the window or in a comfy chair facing Lùjiāzuǐ for optimum views. Or keep one eye on the open kitchen to see how your Tajima Wagyu rib-eye steak, grilled black cod or seafood tower is coming along. There’s a choice of six different steak knives. Book ahead.

The views continue in spectacular fashion from the terrace of the supremely chilled-out upstairs bar.
