The Exchange Bar, Shanghai Blackstone Apartment

Nong Studio

The Blackstone Exchange is in the Blackstone Apartment, situated in the former French Concession. It marks the modern architectural classics of Shanghai with an eclectic style and its design language derives from the traces of Shanghai in the 1930s, when and where it is located. It was flashy and gorgeous, lazy and mysterious, unique and unusual, introverted and self-sustaining. It accepts the infiltration of Western culture but stubbornly maintains the national tradition. There is a golden turntable with double-sighted views. There are also two private boxes with the elements from the Western vault and the Chinese account room. All these scenes show a mysterious reservedness beyond the extravagant.
