Kartel Wine Lounge


Kartel is a three-story lounge bar located in the former Shanghai French Concession. The neighborhood is a pleasant mix of residential and retail areas, Chinese and European style architecture, international restaurants and tiny stalls, wide tree lined streets and traditional lanes… a perfect combination of what constitutes the city today.

With a concept of“Destroy Chic”, the designer Thomas Dariel wanted with Kartel to play with these contrasts, to be elegant yet provoking in this very heritage district.
