#101 Shanghai Architecture Series: Del Monte Cabaret & Casino

You thought the legendary Del Monte was gone, but it is not! The former cabaret is sitting right in the middle of the Shanghai Theatre Academy's campus on Huashan Road. Now called the Xiong Foxi Building, it is frequently misidentified as the site of the German Garden Club, which was, in fact, located next door. Perhaps, the Theatre Academy does not want anything to do with Shanghai's oldest and most resilient cabaret? Well, its students think differently: Broadway-style musical remains the most sought-after major in this college.

Read about Del Monte in Russian / in English. See it on the map.
