10. Vue Bar

Shanghai is a vertical city, so you should climb up and enjoy the view. The aptly named Vue Bar, located on the 32nd and 33rd floors of the new Hyatt on the Bund, offers tremendous vistas of both the historic waterfront and Pudong, the futuristic business district on the other side of the Huangpu River that looks like it was designed by George Jetson. Members of Shanghai's gilded class like to lounge on the daybeds or, in the summer months, take a dip in the whirlpool on the terrace.
