Indroduction of Shanghai nightlife

Shanghai has been a city abundant in night life since 1930s. At that time night life was upper-class people's privilege. Only the rich merchants and officials can go to night clubs to enjoy night life. Lots of rickshaws were waiting outside the clubs. Once performances in the clubs ended the owners of the rickshaws began to rush to their goals - the rich people who just ended their night activities. Nowadays, almost every young adult can enjoy night life. They go to bars, parks or cinemas with their friends or lovers. In a word, night life has become an indispensable part to people who live in Shanghai.
