      打浦路658号1楼, 近龙华东路
    • Phone

    It's a hip lil' rollerskating rink called, succinctly, "RIINK." More like a rink-plus-cocktails-plus-bar bites place. You've got to give it up; it's unique, it's ballsy, it's a nice idea, it's not an EDM-trap club or a whiskey bar. The general dimensions are the same... Read more

    "Boteco" loosely translates to "bar/pub/watering hole" in Portuguese. Launched as the most authentic Brazilian joint in a city where "Brazilian" evokes "all-you-can-eat BBQ" and "Samba Night," it's a watering hole built by Brazilians, for Brazilians. The highlight is... Read more

    Sleek, well-designed sequel to the popular Yongkang Lu Mexican restaurant and bar, with bright colors, luchador masks, and a big outdoor patio that should be busy and rowdy in the warmer months. The tequila heavy cocktails remain, but the food menu ditches the... Read more
