Racks MDB, Hong Kong’s favorite casual hangout is holding the grand opening of their Shanghai branch this Friday and Saturday. Similar to their location near Lan Kwai Fong in Hong Kong, Racks Shanghai is located in Xintiandi, a major entertainment capital of the city. Despite the huge 16,000 square foot space, expect a packed party filled with Racks regulars, many of whom made the trip up for the weekend. Celebrity watchers can count on being dazzled by big name actors, singers and models from around the region.
I was in Shanghai during New Year’s Eve and had a chance to take a look at the place before it opened. It’s located on the fifth level of the modern shopping center at Xintiandi.[photopress:Racks_Shanghai_billiards_po_1.jpg,full,pp_image]
Racks Shanghai is enormous! It has the feel of a massive New York pool hall, plus it has private rooms, a VIP area, multiple bars, a lounge side for events and an outdoor balcony. Wish I could be there![photopress:Racks_China_billiard_pool.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:Racks_bar_Xintiandi_Shangha.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:Racks_Shanghai_bar_pool_1.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:Racks_Shanghai_Xintiandi_po.jpg,full,pp_image]
