    Editor’s Description

    Last updated: Jun 12, 2019
    This Rockbund cocktail lounge is an unapologetic and sincere ode to huangjiu and Chinese spirits in general, from a group of enthusiasts that includes Gordon Zhang of Speak Low. For the uninitiated, huangjiu's is a genre of low-percentage alcohols made (mostly) from rice. The interior's snug and (mostly) tasteful; the muted lighting, racks of exotic bottles and tall cages with actual songbirds flanking the doors should thrill fans of overtly Chinese design. They serve a handful of affordable and educational Chinese liquor flights, pricy whole bottles of the same, and a signature drinks list. Those are mostly riffs on familiar tastes, but as proof-of-concept that huangjiu and baijiu belong in cocktails, they're spot on. For patrons uninterested in huangjiu (what are you doing here), there's Chinese-made gin, vodka, wine and Taiwanese whiskey (specifically Kavalan) available for your regular drinks. The "snack" menu is less "snack" and more "decent set Shanghainese meals." Good place to bring your whisky-snob friends or family members and show off your local knowledge. Add this to the out-of-towner food tour after the stops for xiaolongabo and hongshaorou. Or just go for the novelty yourself.
