This week, Shanghaiist takes a look back at their favorite shots from various Shanghaiist contributors through 2009. If you want to contribute your photos to us, it’s a super easy process – just tag your favorite Shanghai shots with “Shanghaiist” on Flickr or send it to us by email ([email protected]) and it’ll show up in our Flickr pool.
We have to admit, while we enjoy the raucous parties and top notch acts that have performed at underground darling The Shelter this year, the real reason we keep coming back is that those couches are just such a great place to hang. Lord knows how many late nights we’ve sat there, drinking 15RMB beers and chatting with friends into the morning, while the thumping beats of the room outside provided a thrilling but surprisingly unobtrusive soundtrack to our conversation. Air quality and nonexistent cellphone reception be damned, we love the Shelter.
