Wow, what a weekend! Blue skies and beautiful summer in Shanghai. Plus it was my birthday, wohoo! Robert scored points big time and organized a bunch of b-day surprises for me, which rounded up to be one of the best weekends in town so far. In need of tips for a good night out? Keep on reading or contact Robert directly :)
Drinks at Flair Rooftop Bar
Rooftops on warm summer nights are one of my favorite things ever. Robert kicked off Saturday night in style by taking me up to Flair, Ritz-Carlton’s swanky rooftop bar on the 58th floor in downtown Pudong. We had an amazing table and watched the sunset with a breathtaking view of the Pearl Tower, the river and Puxi. Things got even better when Hello Kitty and a bunch of our friends showed up to celebrate with us. It was perfect!
Dinner at Tepito
I looove Mexican food. If I had to choose only one cuisine to eat for the rest of my life, it would be a tough battle between Japanese and Mexican. (And I’m talking real Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Big difference!) Anyway, after some lovely drinks over in Pudong, the whole crew headed back over the river to Tepito in the Former French Concession, a new Mexican restaurant in the corner of Fumin Lu and Changle Lu. We had ceviche, tacos and margaritas, all of which were super tasty and fresh (the ceviche was amazing!). I didn’t manage to take too many pictures from our dinner (my attention was purely on eating), but I did get a snap of the leftovers of my birthday cake. Looks like a blob-monster, but it was delicious!
Saturday night continued around the corner at the popular club Le Baron. We keep ending up at Le Baron on most nights out, even if we swear every time that this will be the last. It was too much fun like always, which led to a lovely, yet slightly slow Sunday.
Spa deluxe at Flare
There are spas, and then there is Flare. Oh what a place. Robert treated me to a Sunday evening of pampering at the 41st floor super-spa of the Pudong Four Seasons. It’s the same spa that James Bond hangs out at in Skyfall, so obviously it’s gotta be good! We had massage treatments in one of the beautiful spa suites, and went on to get even more relaxed at the gorgeous infinity pool and the saunas. The view and facilities are just spectacular. This place should have totally been on my bucket-list, it’s that good!
Thank you friends for an awesome birthday weekend. And an even bigger thank you to Robert, you made it magical. What an amazing husband you are. <3
