They're not legal but I did go to one in Shanghai, a "lady bar"....not recommended since they screw you on drink prices and run up your bill like crazy....at least they did at the one I went to.

Anyway, I guess to stay on topic, I saw the Shanghai tower plot the day before.

Shanghai Tower construction

Here's a pic from a few months ago showing the Shanghai Tower going up between Shanghai World Financial Center and Jinmao and the view from the bar at the Hyatt across the street. We visited Shanghai as part of a year-long around-the-world journey. See more at: http://www.changesinlongitude.com/

Cheers!

Larissa and Michael

Hi all.

Hi Surf.

I have a shot in my collection from the same spot - slightly different angle - the development looks pretty similar.
The photog dated it 1990.
Perhaps our guys from Shanghai can verify that.

I think it's indeed 1990. Amazing! I simply have no words. A little more than 20 years. Incredible. 1990 already seems like ages ago. The skyline now looks so futuristic if I didn't know better I would have thought that the photo's could be easily 60 years apart.
