Shanghai Blues

About Shanghai Blues

Spacious and understated elegance are the hallmarks of Shanghai Blues, in a former library within a grade II listed building. The restaurant, in Holborn, has high ceilings and muted tones with a contemporary twist on traditional Shanghai décor. It feels ultra-spacious, yet intimate.
