Heyday was inspired by the the golden age of Shanghai, a time when Shanghai’s jazz scene and nightlife were internationally renowned. It was a time of elegance, glamour, and more than a touch of decadence.
We’ve created an intimate experience, where performers and audience can connect, and where every seat in the house has a great view of the show.
We designed Heyday to be a complete experience, a place where you can see some of the best music to be found while having a drink you would expect to find at a craft cocktail lounge, and we’ve hired a world class bar crew to deliver on that ambition.
Come to Heyday to enjoy the atmosphere, the music, and the food and drink.

To build a truly great jazz club we needed to serve up drinks that matched the quality of our performances. We’ve assembled a world class bar crew to achieve this aim and provided only the best ingredients. Whether you’re sampling our legendary barrel aged cocktails, our signature cocktails, our fine wines, or our scrumptious bites, we trust that you’ll find the perfect complement to the show and all the ingredients for a perfect night.
