Located in the IAPM luxe shopping destination in Shanghai, 1921 Gucci Café allegedly has been two years in the making and, the small cafés attached to the Gucci museum in Florence and Tokyo store aside, this is the first full-service restaurant for the brand.  Accessed only via an elevator from the Gucci story in the mall, the restaurant is the epitome of opulent private-feel dining, with moody Italian-designed interiors, velvet seating, gold furniture and fixtures, Gucci-stamped cutlery and an Italian menu, save for an Australian beef main and a mango cheese cake costing close to $80.
