Opened in 2010, The Fairmont Peace Hotel breathes new life into the Peace Hotel, a vestige of Shanghai’s pre-WWII glory days.

There are a few lounges to enjoy a cocktail or cigar: Cin Cin, Jasmine Lounge, which also serves afternoon tea, and the Jazz Bar for live music. There are three restaurants, including a casual French bistro, Victor’s, The Cathay Room for modern European cuisine and Dragon Phoenix for Cantonese.
