New in China: Bellagio Shanghai Opens its Doors

(Bellagio Shanghai)

No stranger to glitz, “The Paris of the East” has imported a symbol of flashy Vegas style—straight from The Strip. The Sin City icon now has a sibling (its only other outpost in the world): The Bellagio Shanghai opened this month on the banks of the Suzhou River next to the Waibaidu Bridge.

Inspired by the Bund’s Art Deco history, the 138 guestrooms were styled by the WATG design firm in a "modern interpretation of Shanghai’s past." Some rooms have private terraces for better appreciating the panoramic views of the famous Pudong skyline; suites come with personal butlers. 

Resort highlights include a state-of-the-art fitness center, the Spa at the Bellagio, lots of function space, including a pillar-free Grand Ballroom with natural light, and a slew of dining concepts. The talk of the town: James Beard award-winning chef Julian Serrano has moved his Italian restaurant LAGO from Las Vegas to Shanghai. Other eateries include: Café Bellagio, styled as a modern interpretation of the classic American diner; The Lounge, serving Afternoon Tea and live music in the evenings; and Mansion on One, specializing in Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine, and what’s billed as some of the best Peking Duck in town.
