It liiiiiiives. The second iteration of an underground darling, now double the size, Specters is a black-and-red dive bar with heart. It's built for misfits and Misfits fans. It's still the passion project of a bunch of leathery-skinned personalities you'd typically find at or under the bar at Yuyintang. Booze is cheap, music is weird, mind the step. No better spot in Shanghai to get your teenage kicks right through the night. All right.
