AUTUMN 2009I sea& iI35 topfive CLOUD 9, GRAND HYATT SHANGHAI, SHANGHAI, CHINA Enjoying an elevated reputation as one of the highest bars in the world, Cloud 9 is aptly named. Occupying the apex of the Grand Hyatt, the bar has been imaginatively designed amid steel girders and columns in the Art Deco crown of the hotel's tower, from where it enjoys 360- degree views of Shanghai. You can travel up to the skies ( or the 87th floor) of the Jin Mao Tower in the heart of Pudong to sit and sip Champagne, sparkling wines and cocktails as you gaze out of the vast windows and point out the sights you visited that day; or tempt yourself with which ones to visit on days to come - a particularly magical pastime at night when this dynamic city lights up in all its neon splendour. Before or after your sky- high drinks, why not adjourn to one of the Grand Hyatt's restaurants? Take your pick from seafood and prime cuts at The Grill; sushi, sashimi and yakitori at Kobachi; or authentic Shanghainese at private Club Jin Mao, which is also blessed with fantastic city views through floor- to-ceiling windows. Based as it is in Pudong - Shanghai's financial and business district - the Grand Hyatt is exceptionally well placed for all the city's amenities.
