As we all know, Shanghai has a beautiful skyline. There are a few spectacular skyscrapers to see the beautiful view that are better than the others. I recently tried the Club Jin Mao restaurant on top of the Grand Hyatt hotel. As the name suggests, Club Jin Mao is in the Jin Mao building and the restaurant is on the 86th floor. You can see the skyline from a completely different angle than most people will ever get to see. It’s breathtaking!
I arrived on my last evening in Shanghai to test out the food at this sky-high restaurant. We went with the set menu and were thrilled with the amount and quality of dishes. Let’s discuss the what really stood out. We started with green tea and drank it throughout the meal. The food that came first were the pork ribs and jellyfish.
The dishes kept coming until all were present at the same time. This was nice to be able to sample a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.
My favorite dishes of the evening were the pork ribs, beef, Sichuan chicken and last but not least the tofu. Basically everything that was served was just fantastic. I still dream of this meal.
The staff were great throughout the and served a very nice dessert to finish everything off. It was basically fruit with a slight twist. Any time that dry ice is used, it makes me happy.
One floor higher than Club Jin Mao is Cloud 9, which is their sky bar. From Cloud 9 the view is even more impressive with very tall windows. This was definitely the best way to end the evening!
Club Jin Mao and Cloud 9 not only offer a spectacular view but also amazing food and drink. I can honestly recommend you to enjoy a fantastic meal and drinks with a view at the top of the Grand Hyatt hotel in Shanghai!
