message = As of December 2005, Number Five is Shanghai's newest jazz club. Located right on the historic bund, this chilled-out basement bar feels like it could have been one of the venues where Shanghai's jazz scene started taking off in the 20's. With a regular quintet playing Wednesdays through Sundays from 9:30pm to 1am, it's really a club for listeners, as this is also the first club in town focused on bringing original creative jazz to the scene.
The bar/cafe is open every day from 10am to 2am, and has a full lunch and dinner menu that includes reliable western fare from soups, sandwiches and salads to pizza and pasta, and even a few asian staples. It also boasts a selection of tasty British and Belgian beers.
In the daytime it's the perfect spot to rest from touristing on the bund, and at night it's the best place to get away from the expensive glitz and glamour of many other bund area establishments and just hear some great music.]
