The Shanghai Edition to launch in October 2018

The Shanghai Edition is set to open this month, housed the former headquarters of Shanghai Power Company on Nanjing Road on the Bund. The heritage-protected historical building flows into a new hotel skyscraper development, with 145 rooms and suites.

Inkeeping with designer Ian Schrager’s philosophy of the hotel lobby as ‘a new kind of gathering place’, the Lobby Bar, one of nine in The Shanghai Edition, features bespoke plaster relief artwork inspired by carvings typically observed on shikumen (stone-gated) housing.

The 145 guest rooms and suites at The Shanghai Edition feature beds with Anichini linens; the bathrooms are finished in white marble, detailed in contrasting black metal, with custom-scented Le Labo amenities.

On level 5, the swimming pool has been modelled as though carved from a solid mass of Pietra Serena from an ancient Roman mountainside, and overlooks the area. The gym on level 7 is open 24 hours and gives onto an outdoor terrace for tai chi, yoga and cardio.

On the 27th floor of the skyscraper sits Jason Atherton’s HIYA – a Japanese lzakaya-inspired restaurant, designed by Neri & Hu. Meaning ‘Clouds in the Sky’, the restaurant takes cues from Atherton’s London restaurant, Sosharu. A Shanghai incarnation of the London hotel’s Punch Room, on the mezzanine, is the Roof with panoramic views of Pudong from the Bund.

Shanghai Tavern, Jason Atherton’s all-day dining, brasserie style restaurant is located on the first level and one floor above is Canton Disco, a traditional Cantonese restaurant concept by the Black Sheep Group. The next level up is home to a multi-purpose space for meetings and events for up to 200 guests followed by the Club Room on level 5 – a gentleman’s club-inspired lounge area with karaoke room.

The Spa features a total of six treatment rooms and suites, manicure and pedicure services, sauna, relaxation area with bar and a retail boutique. Level 7 plays host to the new nightspot Electric Circus, conceived in the Studio 54 tradition. On the rooftop, situated on the 8th level of the modern building, sits a fully landscaped roof garden.
