We got a sneak preview last Saturday of Glamour - the newly revamped and revived celebrated cocktail bar on the Bund. It has always been divine, and really needed no improvement. But then again, adding 32 wines by the glass, a Champagne bar and a kitchen that operates from 5pm-1am is really, actually, quite an enhancement.
Glamour is now open and do go and check it out. It's always been high on my list of must-dos in Shanghai. So off you go.
And, if a new look isn't enough to get you down there, the 10th Annual Shanghai Literary Festival will commence in March and tickets go on sale Monday, February 13, 2012, through mypiao.com. Festival sessions are hosted by M and take place in the Crystal Room and Glamour. Get your tickets quickly; many popular sessions sell out fast and stop in to say hi. I'll be tearing tickets for a few events.
