An intriguing brick-and-glass façade which hides a cocktail bar. Bar Alcocase, a mash-up of the words Alcohol and Showcase (explains the confounding glasswork entrance), looks like a Bar Constellation, except cleaner, a bit less worn-in, and set to a soundtrack that would best be described as "Lo-Fi Chillhop Mix January 2018" on YouTube. Drinks list features bold seasonal specials for 90-100rmb with a lot of strong-sounding flavors on there like cold brew, balsamico, black pepper, rose syrup and Sichuan peppers. Drinks are solid. Post-office tipple or catch-up with an old friend vibes, feels just off the copper-counter bartop archetype enough to welcome anyone who likes a good drink at a long bar.
