Update : Paulaner @ Xiantandi reopens with remodelled interior
April 15th, 2016
Following a three-month interior renovation, Paulaner restaurant has reopened in the original two-storied “Shikumen”-house (lit.: stone gate) in the middle of pulsating Xintiandi, combining essential Bavarian interior elements with occasional Asian particulars in a fresh and modern, brand new design with a bright and cheery look.
The newly shaped ground floor stands out due to its modern yet simple design, which has been combined with simple touches of rustic elements to create a comfy, welcoming atmosphere. It invites to spend sociable, relaxing hours among dear friends while enjoying freshly brewed Paulaner beer and daily live entertainment during later hours.
The second floor got scaled up to a light, warm dining area, where wooden and natural materials got used to imitate the feeling of a classic Bavarian barn house with high ceilings, visible roof beams and typically plastered walls with timber framing. Cozy long benches covered with cow fur allure to lean back and feel homey, while during dinner hours one of the restaurant’s two resident live bands provide a perfect background with easy listening sounds. The alpine-inspired, semi-private room on the second floor, called Almstube (lit.: mountain lodge), creates the feeling of a cuddly wooden chalet in the middle of the Alps and offers a unique environment for private get-togethers up to 50 persons around a characteristic German tile stove.
Besides all the alterations, well-established features of Paulaner Bräuhaus Shanghai will remain. Thus, Paulaner @ Xintiandi will continue to be a renowned meeting place for enjoying micro-brewed Paulaner beer, traditional, hearty Bavarian fare and tasty international favorites as well as excellent live performance.
