Adding to the latest deluge of new nightspots, Club Platinum Miu opened
its doors with a Smirnoff-fuelled launch party last month, bringing a touch of
verve to this quiet corner of the French Concession.
Well-designed and spacious, the long black-topped bar is backed with
flickering flames, leather sofa areas lend a sense of elegance whilst the
minimalist red-washed walls add just the right amount of decadence, heating up
an already sensual ambience.
The whole place has a spanking new feel, a cleanliness which happily extends
to the toilets, always a pleasant surprise in clubland.
Ample seating with tiered platforms and an array of tables with high stools
cleverly utilizes the space and provides a comfortable vantage point from which
to watch things kick off on the dance floor.
Charming waiters serve drinks from an extensive menu with many well-mixed
cocktails priced around 50 yuan (US$6). A stage provides a platform for visiting
What's more, it will be interesting to see whether in upcoming nights the Air
Hostesses or Miu Idols-a hodgepodge of amateur singers searching for fame-will
do justice to this sophisticated venue.
