If you want to catch a good view oof the Shanghai skyline at night, go to any of the tall buildings in Pudong.
Regine and I went to a bar on top of the Mandarin Hotel. It comes with an outdoor area which is great for taking photos and enjoying the fantastic skyline.
Drinks prices there are not exorbitant as well. We spent only about 200 RMB there for two drinks.
Though it was drizzling, I ventured out and took a few:

Just after a quick tour around Cool Docks, I took a walk with a friend and took some photos of the views around the Bund. I have not been to the Bund since the renovations were completed. There are now a lot more visitors friendly touches and photogenic spots.
Just near Cool Docks, there is a newly opened bar with a small man-made beach, beach beds included ! I guess this is a great idea for the summer but definitely not a good one for winter! No wonder there is no one there when we took the photos.
Have you been to Cool Docks yet ?
Cool Docks is one of the more recent venue carved to inject even more vibrancy and night life to the already saturated entertainment scene in Shanghai.
The name Cool Docks is a misnomer, for the Chinese name is actually "老码头“, which translates into the term, "old pier". Said to be oldest pier, even before the very renowned, The Bund, Cool Docks is about twenty minutes walk from Nanjing East Road.
Let me show you some photos from my trip there:
