DADA: a Shanghai institution

A Shanghai institution (just not for any tuhao), DADA is a chilled-out dive bar where locals and laowai can let their hair down free of the pretensions of the city’s more flashy clubs. A staple of the underground dance music scene, with live DJ sets weekly and always a killer crowd in attendance.
Tucked away up a back alley between LOgO and Anar (both establishments no longer there), this low-lit, graffiti scrawled bar gives us another reason for spending out nights on Xingfu Lu. Backed by one of the best party crews in Shanghai here you’re sure to hear consistently interesting music and meet the city’s in-the-know crowd.
