Editor’s Description

Last updated: Apr 8, 2020
A cocktail dispensary disguised to look more like a futuretech HEYTEA kiosk. Think a My First Alcochemistry Set, brought to you by Daniel An (Arch, Atelier, Antique) and his co-conspirators. The taps run six juices ("Bitter Sweet," "Pink Grapefruit," "Bubble Aloe," etc.), each 25rmb for a cup, which you can then spike for an additional 10rmb. For example, add Jalapeno Tequila to your Pink Grapefruit, or Earl Grey infused gin in the Rose Cranberry. There are between one and five options for each. You could call it "how I mix drinks at home" but dressed up with beakers, fancy infusions and a touch-screen to order from, it becomes "modular mixology." They also do pre-made cocktails that might be familiar to fans of An's other spots, like the Shanghai Mule or the Coffee Negroni (weighing in at a doughty 22% ABV). They all come in vacuum-sealed 100ml plastic sleeves — just under the limit for, just saying, airport security — and at 25rmb each, are dirt cheap. Theatre X has suddenly become a go-to spot to get hammered on a budget. You can order delivery via their mini-Program, too.
