JD Gay Bar in ShanghaiBase (JD 基地) Bar

🏳️‍🌈 Shanghai Gay Guide 🏳️‍🌈 

LOCAL STYLE FRIENDLY BABA/BAO DEN

Very local and large bar located outside the gayborhood just above Suzhou Creek.  From the same owners of its self-competing ManGo bar, with much the same customer base, everything starts early and finishes early… Base (opened as JD but renamed a few days later as Base) is slightly more upscale than ManGo, and the Base waiters are friendlier.  Starts around 8:00 PM with a mix of pop, electronica & disco that entertain older Chinese and they’re younger admirers who want to dance on the central large dance floor. Lots of inexpensive beer by the bucket — typically cans of Suntory sold in 6-packs and friendliness between tables…

JD Gay Bar in Shanghai MapThe first time may be hard to find, so use my map and it will be easier… Although with a good DiDi driver it’s possible to be dropped off at the building door on GuangFu Road, most times they will drop you off on Wuzhen Road just as they driver crosses the bridge.  In that case, it’s a very short and easy walk on flat ground to the bar.

When you get to the building, enter through the car park, and on the right inside the car park is the building entrance, turn right, and take the elevator to the 3rd floor. (see the photos).  Just like ManGo, there is a general maturity of the mind of people that makes it feel like inclusive fun for all…  Young, old, thin, fat, rich, poor, tall, short… it does not matter everyone is equal.  I was warmly welcomed as the only foreigner.

Expect a fun night, good local prices and crowded space with a large dance floor that will be packed with”bao” baby boys and their “baba” daddies.

Just like ManGo, recommended for long-term ex-pats and of course local Chinese but I suggest other bars may be better for first time foreigners… since absolutely no English is spoken have fun using body language and WeChat translation.

Overall, a fun experience.
