M2 is a huge space on the fourth floor of a shopping mall permanently packed with Shanghai's young, pretty things. The industrial-feeling club is a big improvement on the former space. The sound system is first-class and it's one of the spots that super-star DJs play when they roll through town. Regular nights, however, expect to hear music on the commercial end of the clubbing scene and most of the space is given over to bottles and tables.
