    Go to The Shelter and stay there. It's dark, cramped, smells like ballsweat and the staff serve cheap, crappy drinks, so maybe you'll just think you're still in PPG. I don't remember which part of town it's in, but there's some other shit bars nearby too, so you should be right at home.

    I wasn't just taking the piss, Pete. The Shelter really is a clone of PPG in Shanghai. You don't need to go to any other club. They might even let you sleep behind the bar.

    French Consession, decent bars: People 7, Alchemist, Anar (Pomegranate), Appartment, and more.

    Or just go to the bund, find a tall building along the river, go to the top floor, you'll find grand hotel red wine bars.

    I remember drunk whites do oral in front of everyone on the lawn outside Shelter. It literally SUCKS.
