Luxurylaunches raises a toast to Yu Bar, one of the most glam and well-designed rooftop bar in Shanghai. Nestled on the 28th and 29th floor of the new Shanghai Marriott Luwan, you can watch the Lupu River flow along with other breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. Designed by Kokaistudios, it spreads over two levels with grandeur. The VIP area spells luxury boldly with ceiling height windows, old-style chesterfield custom-designed red leather sofas, and a dramatic stainless steel globe steals the show. While the bar’s name stands for elegance and exclusivity, the entrance welcomes you with a corridor surrounded by sleek dark glass cabinets. Another highlight is a U-shaped bar covered in thick steel cables inspired by a boat and offers spectacular views of the passing ships.
‘A sleek flying staircase leads up a brightly lit and wildly orange room located within the newly built modern-style glass pavilion; designed in a way to allow for the terrace to occupy the best views of the river and the neighboring sites. With a second bar and plush white sofas, the atmosphere is almost opposite from the dark and low-key first floor and is designed for lounging in the breeze and appreciating fine cocktails and wines almost as if one was on a boat on the river. The entire top floor is designed to be rented out for private events and hosts a full bar and kitchen facilities.’
