Shanghai has ordered three private clubs and eight high-end restaurants in public parks to “rectify problems” as part of a central government call in December to stamp out “unhealthy practices” in such places, Xinhua reported Wednesday. Municipal authorities in Beijing summoned operators of 27 upmarket restaurants in parks and protected cultural sites to discuss their operations, telling some to suspend business until they resolved outstanding issues, the report said. And in Hangzhou, 15 similar facilities have been closed or suspended. The Communist Party ordered officials to shun high-end clubs and warned of severe penalties for partygoers as part of its “mass line” campaign.
