Muse on the Bund is an incarnation of the original nightclub near Fuxing Park, and this version on the Rockbund is luxurious, with VIP lounges, KTV rooms and a wading pool on a rooftop deck. A number of the private rooms are decorated in celebration of various brands, including Moet, Dom Perignon and Hennessy. A 3,000 sq m "temple of entertainment and dining" as the club's promoters call it, MUSE hosts an assortment of pool tables also, right next to the Crystal Bar installed in the center of a cavernous room. The scene feels very much like M1NT -- that other late-night establishment -- only younger and hipper and more fast-paced. Come here to see and be seen, spend lots of money, and get sweaty on the dance floor. Unlike M1NT, this crowd takes a little longer to get going -- on one night at 10 p.m. no one had yet to hit the dance floor.
