The surprise here is that The House opened its doors in a somewhat unexpected
location, launching a flashy nightclub on a strip better known for comfy dives
like Freelance and the Eager Beaver.
Yet even in this out of the way clubbing district, The House isn't difficult
to miss, painted as it is in a rather violent shade of orange both inside and
out. Despite the garish first impression, The House offers a pleasant
environment in which to relax with a drink or take a turn on the dance floor.
Already, the club draws a consistently large crowd of smartly-dressed, mainly
Chinese party-goers. The music is a laid back mix of genres kept at a blessedly
reasonable volume so that itĄ¯s possible to carry on a conversation. Though the
club's total floor area is small compared to ShanghaiĄ¯s many mega-clubs, the
space is well utilized, and the upstairs loft adds extra elbow room. The House
well may be the exception to the rule that a nightclub's success is all about
location, location, location.
5:30pm-9am. All cards.
