What looks like the only functioning coin-laundromat in Shanghai with blue neon lighting is actually the front for a speakeasy from the team behind Barber Shop. Despite the space-age entrance, the interior's fairly plain, familiar oak-and-leather seating with a long bar and cubbies where high-rolles keep their bottles of whiskey. Cocktails are expensive, with even classics starting at 90rmb and worming their way up. Not a stellar option, but good for the contrast between your inside-outside selfies.
