    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Local cocktail maven Eddie Yang has cut a deal with a cafe hidden upstairs from a Chinese medicine shop near Jing'an Temple. Look for the elevator on the corner. By day they serve coffee. After sunset, Yang and Co. mix custom cocktails. No menu. Just pick your poison and let Yang impress you. (Hence the name "Tailor Bar"). It's a great spot, with big views of Jing'an, blues on the stereo, and real cocktails like Sazeracs and Old Fashioneds. Recommended, and they tend to stay open very late sometimes.

    We stood on the corner of Huashan lu and Yuyuan lu, looking up at a pretty unimpressive commercial building. Are we sure there is a bar in there that we really want to have a drink?

    Swallowing our skepticism, we located the elevator, which took us durectly to the bar on level 4. No other levels were acessible. As we got out of the lift, we saw the bar immediately tucked into a corner, and i have to say, it looked realy cosy. Its small, no overly tacky christmas deco or music, and candles and warm lighting all around.

    We were seated immediately, with water for the table without asking. Brownie points!

    We asked for the menu. There is no such thing. Hmmm. However, the waiter said, we can make you any cocktail you like, just let us know the base. Very Cool. I like it. Brownie points!
    Some of my friends asked for a surprise cocktail after picking their base liqour. I stuck to what I know aka G&T. I asked for it in my broken chinese as best as I can. Immediately, the waiter replied in perfect english (and short of sounding racist, no chinese accent)..and what Gin would you like your G&T? Brownie points!

    He then invited me up to the bar to view their Gin selection. Great selection. Brownie points!
    I asked of a recommendation, and the bartender (also speaking perfect english) spewed off what was more classic, bitter, sweet etc. I made my selection very easily.

    All our drinks arrived within 10 minutes of ordering. Extremely good timing. Brownie points!. We all loved our cocktails. Brownie points!!!

    Waiters kept our waters filled without ever asking. Brownie points!!

    Brownie points all around. I love this new bar - great cocktails, great service and completely unpretentious.
