Casual, colorful cocktail bar and danceclub in the heart of Jing'an, with Latin-style vibes, good sound and proper drinks. Popular spot. So popular, in fact, it's spawned locations in Bangkok, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Kunming and Xiamen. It's spacious, ideal for dance parties on weekend nights, but keeps a warm vibe with Cuban and Latin-style interiors. The soundtrack is predominantly hip-hop, house and Top 40s, with a decidedly Latin bent to it, sometimes a bit of reggaeton. Earlier in the evening, it has more of a cocktail bar thing going on, but around 10pm, they black out the windows onto the street and it turns into a full-on club. The "There Is No Escape" sign at the door gives you an idea of how seriously they take their partying. They've got themed parties every night, and hold two special parties a month. Other nice touches include USB charging at the bar, soundproof doors for the late nights, and big friendly parrots painted on the walls. Good look for summer nights.
