looking for a venue to play guitar in Shanghai

Recommended Posts



I am looking for a venue in Shanghai that does open mic or similar. My style of musics is folk/ blues/ ballad. If you have been to a place  that you liked or know of one that might be worth trying, I would appreciate any suggestions for a weekend trip to the big city.


Here is a sample of the kind of stuff I write n sing.


Thanks in advance

The Thirsty Seahorsse does live Wulumuqi Lu, near corner of ZhaoJiaBang Lu, French Concession area. I know the owner - nice guy.

Thanks for asking and yes I did. I like the venue and he seems pretty keen to get some musicians down there. So maybe just a question of when. 


Do you have plans to go there in near future?


If anyone is heading to SH for music I can certainly recommend Thirsty Seahorse as a chilled spot :-)

I was heading up there every week, and often went for dinner there. But 'work' has slowed down a lot, and I'm not getting the hours I used to - and so, I've been heading back home here rather than staying for dinner.


I know I'm up SH way next Tues, but haven't any ideas about after that. Next week will probably be a short one as well! (almost getting to the point of not being worth it... expenses cancelling out the income :( )
