1029 South Zhongshan Road Building Number 3
The location of the club is definitely unique. It’s on the so called new bund. Deep Deep into the new bund. It’s further down than the Shanghai Cool docks the luxury club is situated inside Shanghai’s Xingfu Port complex (幸福码头), a new creative zone on the South Bund inside a converted motorcycle factory once owned by Du Yuesheng (杜月笙). The biggest Shanghai mafia back in the days. The Al Capone of Shanghai.
Elma Ji, Haven’s brand ambassador, told us that the Gothic club would offer a variety of services, from high-end clubbing — open to public on the first Saturday of every month with a RMB 500 entrance fee — to tailor-made event planning to offbeat wedding ceremonies.
“We don’t want to be considered as another nightlife spot because we also open during the day [for events] and provide a head-to-toe planning service,” said Ji.
And when Haven boasts a vampire decor, it means it.
Designed by Lime, a firm hailing from France, the former factory building’s interior has been re-styled into a castle.
The whole space is lit up by bat-clinging ceiling lamps, equipped with blood-spattered lifts, served by demon-like waiters and dotted with vampire badges sourced from around the world.
And don’t scream if you come across a pile of skulls out of the blue, they are just telephones.
Several secret tunnels are embedded in this five-story venue to shield any celebrities or socialites longing for a vampire night out from paparazzi.
I went to the soft opening and it was interesting. It’s one of the best looking and unique clubs in Shanghai. The interior is Gothic and it looks like the Shanghai vampires lair
When you walk in you see the Purple velvet coffin and that just makes those Shanghai vampires feel like home.
The music, Hmm, it’s a mish mosh of everything, the interior on a whole looks great The lighting awesome.
Ah yes, the V.I.P room is the best in Shanghai, it actually has a heated swimming pool.
Another crazy club to add to Shanghai nightlife. It seems like they will mostly do private parties, events and special dinning. Oh yes, they are suppose to open every Sat only. The door will be 500 RMB, rich vampires only, poor ones don’t come!!
