Shanghai Baby, Seminyak
One of the island’s most talked about and anticipated addresses has finally opened their doors, and it was worth the wait! You can’t miss the three-story jewel box on Jalan Petitenget sparkling with teal, glossy tiles and the world’s biggest wooden entry door. Once inside though, let your senses take it all in – gorgeous wall murals, roof murals, stunning chandeliers, sexy mirrored bar and mood lighting combined with that modern, open kitchen – where all the action is at.
Shanghai Baby enlisted Ushers by Design to create an immersive design for the trifecta-stories of fabulousness, inspired by classic Chinoiserie but re-imaged for Bali. So, big tick for the dramatic design and interiors – we love.
But, let’s talk food… there’s a lot to love here, with their modern Asian cuisine using the finest ingredients for innovative signature dishes – representing the decadent era of the 1930’s, when Shanghai was known as the “Paris of the East”. Chilli Crab Salad, Braised Wagu Beef Ribs [cauliflower, hoison sauce with kailan with ginger and lemongrass foam], and so much more.
And, let’s not forget drinks, Baby – world class mixology standards are alive and well here with a list of many delish, designer concoctions. Our recommendation? The Miss Tang – it’s smoking. Literally. And delicious.
So Level One: Restaurant and lobby bar, is open! Level Two: the full-floor-length lounge bar will be open by February and Level Three: The Rooftop will be open mid-year. And make sure you visit the bathrooms – they’re just cool.
