In September, Shanghaiist reported that Wai Tan had gone really upscale and added a gay nightclub. We’re happy to say Club D2, by the same owners of the infamous Club Deep, is still going strong.
The Bund has now added a lesbian venue into the melee. 1st on the Bund, located on the first floor of 1 Yan’An Zhong Rd (the same building as De La Coast), has gone lesbian on Saturdays. Not only that, but they have the best drinks deal on the Bund, if not in the whole city. From 9PM-12 AM open bar costs RMB 30 (no, we are not missing a zero). After midnight, the drink prices raise to RMB 30 each. Once you’re liquored up, the circular dance floor in the center of the club ensures all eyes will be on you!
Although, 1st on the Bund’s party is only on Saturday nights we are happy to report another lala hangout. That makes four lesbian bars in Shanghai including Red Station and Er Ling Ling on Taikang Road and Frangipani’s lesbian lounge.

Girls Rule the Studio Night
Shanghai Studio has a lesbian only section the last Saturday of each month, November 29th, from 9pm to midnight with standard drinks for 25RMB and Tsingtao 15RMB. (Sorry forgot to add this earlier!)
Theatre and Dancing
Shanghai LGBT will host a formal ball December 13th called ‘A Pink Tie Affair.” It’ll be in conjunction with a play, Beautiful Thing, that is being performed in honor of World Aids Day. All proceeds from the play will go towards the fabulous Chi Heng Foundation which focuses not only on lesbians, but on Aids orphans and Aids awareness.
