Hidden behind the Rockbund Art Museum, this place was built on vodka. Vodka is not only used in creating excellent cocktails, but it's even in dishes like fish and chips!
Opened in autumn 2014, the Nest has quickly established itself as the Bund's seafood and oyster bar. This neighbourhood restaurant is trendy yet casual and unpretentious. If you prefer wagyu beef, Iberian ham, and great cheese platters, this cosy nest will suit you as well.
The airy space revolves around the bar, topped by a spine-like light sculpture. People don't just come to the Nest to eat, but to dance to good music, too. And there are two balconies for smokers. Book ahead.
