Jake Newby of SH Mag reports that Attica Shanghai, once a reigning destination on the Bund, is going to shut down on September 14. As he heard from Attica CEO Neil Hardwick:
“We’ve been hearing these rumors for 15 months, but this time there might be some truth in it. We will be selling Attica. It will be closed for a set period of time and will undergo renovations and re-open as something else. We’ve been here for two years so the place needs a refurbishment.”
What we’ll miss: The spectacular views of the Bund (which, quite frankly, can be had in a dozen other places)
What we won’t: Attitudinal door bitches and wait staff, preposterously priced weak drinks, and oh, the text messages they’ve been sending us twice a week for the last two years that we’ve had no way to opt out of.
