The Roof at Waterhouse Hotel is somewhat of a hidden gem, as is the hotel itself. Located on the banks of Shanghai's Huangpu River and not looking like much to the world from the outside, inside you find a lovely 19 room boutique hotel, called The Waterhouse at South Bund.

And up top is the Waterhouse roof terrace, offering a wonderful view of the Pudong skyline and the water where boats cruise by both day and night.

The terrace decor goes hand in hand with the industrial design-feel of the hotel, uncluttered and with some greenery and comfortable lounge furniture.

At the rooftop bar you can order creative cocktails, and there are also bar snacks available from the hotel restaurant Table No. 1, located downstairs.

The atmosphere here is usually relaxed and calm, with nice lounge music and prices that are more affordable then on rooftops in Shanghai in general.

So if you are searching for drinks and river views at a good price and in a calm atmosphere, this is a nice Shanghai rooftop bar to visit from this complete listing of the best ones.
