The Waterhouse at South Bund is ideally located in the vicinity of the 2010 World Expo site and adjacent to Shanghai.s latest cultural hotspot, The Cool Docks, The Waterhouse at South Bund is situated east of the city's old town, which was the focal point for the city's shipping and trading activities in the 1800s. With a magnificent view of the Pudong skyline, The Waterhouse is part of a quaint low-rise district where much of the city's architectural heritage is still intact. Across the main road of Zhongshan Nan Lu that leads to The Waterhouse is the famous Shiliupu fabric market where tourists and locals have their suits and gowns tailor made. To the east, across the Huangpu River, is the bustling commercial centre of Lujiazui while to the south is the Nanpu Bridge, the first steel and concrete composite girder cable-stayed bridge built in Shanghai and the fourth longest of such bridge in the world. The Waterhouse at South Bund is comprised of two buildings: a hotel and an event warehouse. Adjacent to the 19-room boutique hotel and restaurant is a pillarless multi-purpose event venue that was converted from a former warehouse. The impressive space evokes the building.s industrial roots while staying true to the neighborhood.s historic past. The 8,000 square-foot (743 sqm) multi-function warehouse boasts a double-storey ceiling and a flexible, easy-to-convert layout, making it perfect for a wide range of events, including product launches, fashion shows, corporate and sporting events, concerts, exhibitions, weddings, and other promotional activities. With a capacity of up to 800 guests, the unique space has become a preferred new option for Shanghai.s top events even before the launch of the hotel. Recent high profile functions held at the warehouse included Shanghai Tang 2009 fall & winter fashion show, Hong Kong film director Wong Kar Wai.s star-studded private party and the launch of International Home Decor & Design.
