“You Breakfast, Feast & Sit & Sip & Eat…
Snack, Grab, Grub, Munch, Crunch, Nibble… Late-Lunch, Early-Dinner…
Nip a cup or raid a jeroboam of Champagne, by yourself, with friends… with a stranger…
A sanctuary of freedom – of anytime – of any indulgence, code-less…
Eternally untrendy and forever in fashion.
I love French Café.”



Born French and Shanghai raised, Polux is Paul Pairet’s simplest joint so far, in the heart of Xintiandi.

Polux is a French café, a bar, a casual bistro with a terrace, and a hangout to drop-in anytime for a hearty breakfast, casual fares and cozy dinner.

No fuss, no rush, no drift, no salto – but basics done with Pairet’s touch and stripped to the core – The luxury of understated simplicity.

Polux is a French café. A place to drink and eat all day – like another, unlike any other.
A rendez-vous for fun seekers, a hangout for bon vivants.
See you around!
