A jury of reporters, columnists and lifestyle writers will evaluate the winners based on the voting result. The vote lasts until October 24 and the awards ceremony will be held in November.

Claus Borregaard, vice president, operations and marketing of Big Bamboo, said the bar has been nominated among the best bars and clubs and he hoped to land the award this time.

Mira Sharma, a veterinarian from Australia who has been living in Shanghai for several years, tried the iDEALShanghai app and found it useful.
