Where: To see if the “Bund’s Boudoir” can live up to the hype
This is a bar for select guests and members, and with its exclusivity comes peace and quiet – a rarity at Bund-side venues. Taking inspiration from an old-fashioned French boudoir, the bar reassembles an anti chamber, restricted to intimate friends, and conjures images of classical New Orleans.
The final addition to Three On The Bund’s seventh floor trilogy, which also including POP American Brasserie and POP Bar, the floor is now a destination that offers exciting experiences for all times of day; lunch, dinner, cocktails and night caps.
Bedecked in vivid red fabrics, brassware lighting fixtures, timber floor pattern and hand painted walls, the elegant space serves historical cocktails that honour New Orleans and its French heritage. Go for the classic Sazerac and French 75, or try a fresher, craft cocktail such as Dita’s Kiss or Fleur de Lys. Naturally, there is also a vast selection of top shelf liquors and fine champagne.
The bespoke music selection will showcase the evolution of music, from jazz to swing, funk and disco, all of which can be listened to whilst reclining in antiquestyle French furniture and looking out over sweeping views of the majestic Bund architecture.
A quaint and private location to meet with small groups, Whisper is a “by invitation only” club with access restricted to Whisper cardholders and their party.
