Ideally located in the vicinity of the 2010 World Expo site and adjacent to Shanghai's latest cultural hotspot, The Cool Docks, The Waterhouse at South Bund is situated east of the city's old town, which was the focal point for the city's shipping and trading activities in the 1800s. It is Shanghai's first cutting-edge design hotel.

The hotel's design philosophy is based on a blurring or an inversion of internal & external spaces, creating a disorienting yet refreshing spatial experience for guests in search of something out of the ordinary.

The Waterhouse at South Bund is comprised of two buildings: a hotel and an event warehouse.  

Adjacent to the 19-room boutique hotel and restaurant is a pillar less multi-purpose event venue that was converted from a former warehouse. The impressive space evokes the building's industrial roots while staying true to the neighborhood's historic past.

The 8,000 square-foot (743 sqm) multi-function warehouse boasts a double-storey ceiling and a flexible, easy-to-convert layout, making it perfect for a wide range of events, including product launches, fashion shows, corporate and sporting events, concerts, exhibitions, weddings, and other promotional activities.

Table No. 1 by Jason Atherton is a casual restaurant that offers a refreshing look at contemporary European cuisine in a cosy, convivial atmosphere. Four communal-style dining tables of unfinished wood add to the sociable environment and make the space conducive for shared dining. The main dining hall and two private dining rooms are set within historic Shiliupu, once Shanghai's most bustling shipyard.

The Roof at Waterhouse,a rooftop cocktail bar, offers a splendid view of the Huangpu River and serves up the most creative concoctions and delectable appetizers to guests who come to this perfect cozy getaway in the city.
