Some of these places deserve an article to themselves, some don't, but if we drip-feed this tidal wave of liquor to you, we won't be done until January. So here you go! Booze blast! Eleven places to drink! Go, go, go!
Made it to the bottom? Have a hot bit of beer news
Very good Danish beer bar Mikkeller is opening a new two-story place in Xintiandi where the El Luchador used to be. The new Mikkeller will have an actual kitchen this time, serving up slightly elevated Danish fare. Can't wait for some smørrebrød and frikadeller, just like mammi used to make in-between her eighth and ninth pint of akvavit. Not for a while though; they're expecting to open in February, so we'll check back in with them in... May?
