The Blackstone Exchange is in the Blackstone Apartment, which is in the former French Concession. It marks the modern architectural classics of Shanghai with an eclectic style. Its design language derived from the traces of Shanghai in the 1930s, when and where it is located. It was flashy and gorgeous, lazy and mysterious, unique and unusual, introverted and self-sustaining. It accepts the infiltration of the western culture but stubbornly maintains the national tradition.

There has a golden turntable with double-sighted views. There also has two private boxes with the elements from the Western vault and the Chinese account room. The bar is everywhere to tell you the name exchange and the origin of the bar owner. This mysterious reservedness beyond the extravagant seems to take you to the heyday of Shanghai in the 1930s. Nearly a century changed Shanghai a lot. Even so, nothing seems to have changed.
