No.5 The Bund (corner of Guangdong Lu)


After 23 years serving in one of Shanghai’s most iconic neighbourhoods, it is bittersweet for us to announce the official closing of M on the Bund and Glam dining lounge & bar on 15 February, 2022.


Over the years, we have served over three million guests across local and worldwide communities, among them some influential and prominent names. With your support, we have become more than a restaurant of excellent food and warm hospitality, but also a platform where like-minded people gather and connect. We are proud of the numerous initiatives we have founded and supported and humbled by the awards we have received, for they have made us one of the city’s most distinguished dining establishments.

It has been a tremendous pleasure for us to serve the community over the past two decades, and we owe an immense debt of gratitude to everyone who has loved our restaurants and supported our businesses. Your trust and loyal patronage have allowed us to grow and mature. Therefore, while we are sad to depart, we are more than grateful for the moments spent with you, and we hope your time with us has left you with nothing but happy and indelible memories.

As we bid our final goodbye, we would like to create a memory photo album of stories and good times. We kindly invite anyone wishing to share their memorable moments with us by sending photos to [email protected], or bring them along when you visit.

For those who would like to send their farewell in person, our restaurants will remain in full operation until the closing date, and we would definitely love to see you again. Please make all reservations via our website, Chope and Dianping.

Together, let’s complete this journey in joy and fulfilment.
