Here's the new offers (other than the obvious Valentine's theme deals) from Shanghai bars and restaurants trying to get you in out of the cold.
The refurbished/relaunched Bund bar at the top of a hostel The Captain has an off-day happy hour that brings prices sort of in line with what they used to be there about four years ago. From Sunday-Thursday from 5pm to 7pm, it's 40rmb on cocktails, beers, wines, and prosecco. Plus, there's that terrace, which is very nice. (They've got heat lamps and blankets for the cold.) Turn up earlier, patio seating fill up.
Found 158's Turkish restaurant Pera has teamed up with long-standing Indian staple Kebabs on the Grille to expand its menu. And that means promotions! Monday, all chicken curries are 45rmb and every Tuesday, all veg curries are 40rmb. That's valid all the way to February 28. Open from 5pm to 10.30pm.
Step 1 - Buy two sake bombs at Cages. They're 100rmb for two. Chug with your opponent.
Step 2 - You're in fake sumo suits wait how did this happen.
Step 3 - Fight, best out of three.
Step 4 - It's online.
50rmb isn't great value for a sake bomb, but it's decent when you include going toe-to-toe with a friend in those giant sumo suits. They promise the best take-downs of the evening get put all over their social medias. So the real deal is the millions of sponsorship dollars you'll make when you go viral. That's every Saturday from 10pm till whenever they close.
