The newest addition to Shanghai's alternative clubbing scene, The Shelter is a no-frills basement club offering up the cornerstones of a great night out: cheap drinks, great atmosphere, and creative music. Large dance floor for bigger events and a great lounge area in the back for more low-key nights. Check the listings for individual event information. [1] Stalwart of the underground dance music scene, The Shelter provides a forum for both locally-based independent electronic artists and DJs, and new international alternative dance acts. A converted bomb shelter, the club is dark, sweaty, black, loud, and thumping. Virtually every single Shanghai independent promoter has a weekly or monthly party therein, and so music ranges on a given night from Reggae to IDM to Drum n Bass to Electro to Hip Hop.
