Madame Shanghai is a Darlinghurst eatery and bar serving contemporary Chinese.

Inside, old school elegance and Chinoiserie décor combine with a playful colour palette of malachite, blues and pinks emulating 1930’s Shanghai. The cocktail area overlooking Hyde Park is reminiscent of a Shanghai garden with lush greenery. The 90 seater is open six days for both dinner and a bar menu.

上海丽人,1930年代的旧上海风格的酒吧餐厅坐落于古老的海德公园旁, 用餐同时还可享受海德公园和悉尼塔的美景。



Much of Shanghai-born group executive chef Chris Yan’s menu is made to share and cooked shaokao-style (Chinese barbeque). The open kitchen creates a heady scent of spice and meat caramelising on the grill. Yan has kept a few Lotus favourites (dumplings!) but says Madame Shanghai is more ‘street’ and focused on the grill.

The Madame Shanghai wine philosophy is to create a list that can be enjoyed by the glass in our sumptuous bar or savour with our take on modern Shanghai food. We have selected wines from classic wine regions of the world, through to the interesting and dynamic producers that are part of our wonderful wine world. Annette Lacey – Director of Wine and Beverage

The cocktail bar overlooks Hyde Park and College Street – an ideal location to explore innovative cocktail concoctions inspired by Chinese mythology and Asian flavours.

We experimented with somewhat forgotten 1950s cocktail recipes and aged spirits at Madame Shanghai, spending months so far sourcing vintage bottles to play with. The ‘76 Negroni cocktail is one such result and features a 1976 Beefeater gin, 1970s Campari and 1976 Cinzano Antica.
