Shanghai’s Upscale Gay Bar for Low-Key Drinks

Rice Bar, a small and popular gay lounge & bar on Fahuazhen Lu. RICE Bar is one of Shanghai’s longest-running gay bars & restaurants. It is a Japanese-themed lounge with cool simple decor and a laid-back vibe. Just a bar, a few couches, a TV, and a fish tank. Drinks average around 50rmb.

Come here for a few drinks before heading out to more dance clubs & bars nearby such as Lucca 390, Telephone 6, and Happiness 42, or settle in on the couch for an evening of conversation. They’ve got a good reputation for their friendly staff here.

Music: Expect some chilled background tunes which make Rice Bar a perfect place to meet friends and make a conversation.

Crowd: Good mix of local guys, expats, and tourists. The crowd is mostly young and trendy, but a few older veterans are also common.

How to get there

RICE Bar is located in the Changning District, Shanghai’s gayborhood, a short 10 minute walk away from the grouping of louder clubs around Lucca.

Taxi: As with Lucca and many of the gay bars around French Concession, the easiest landmark to tell your taxi driver if you don’t have the address is the Crowne Plaza Shanghai. From there, turn right onto Fahuazhen Rd and walk the short distance. Hail a taxi or use the Didi app to call one when leaving.

Metro: The closest metro station is Jiaotong University, which is a 10-15 minute walk away. Just get out at Exit 3, cross the road onto Fahuazhen Road, and walk until you see the RICE Bar sign (look up, it’s not at ground level).

Bus: Lines 48, 911, and 946 serve Xinhua Road, which is the next road down from Fahuazhen. Get off at the stop in front of the post office and walk up Xianghuaqiao Road: RICE is a short way on your left.

Facilities: Bar, Restaurant, Music, Free WiFi
