Shanghai Marriott Hotel Luwan Unveils New YU Rooftop Bar

YU Offers Stunning Views, Fine Wines, Crafted Cocktails and Delicious Snacks

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - When deciding what to name its new rooftop bar, the Shanghai Marriott Hotel Luwan, among Luwan District hotels, wanted something that reflected its past and present. They settled on YU, a classical Chinese character, which refers to invaluable elegant objects and is often associated with those pursuing a life in fashion and being on trend.

The rooftop bar at this international hotel in Shanghai is both fashionable and on trend, and opened its door with a nautical-themed soiree, a gentle nod to the design details seen in the two-story space. Taking over the hotel's top 28th and 29th floors, the trendy bar takes in an inspiring landscape, including the Lupu Bridge crossing over the Huangpu River, the city skyline and the post Expo Shanghai. Like its name, YU combines nostalgic touches and contemporary decor, blending traditional Chinese flavor with Western romance. Dim lighting, a vermilion sofa and a black-and-white painted glass wall are just some of the striking design features of this nightlife destination.

Located within the newest hotel in Shanghai, YU offers an extensive cocktail menu, including its signature Yu Gui Fei, fine wines and top international spirits, plus snacks to keep you on the dancefloor throughout the night. An additional event space allows for live DJs, private celebrations and more.

In addition to YU, this Shanghai international hotel features five additional dining venues, including Red Zen, a casual noodle restaurant serving classic Asian noodle dishes and Blue Moon, with a menu of contemporary Chinese cuisine, an extensive beverage selection and private dining rooms.
