You've definitely seen pictures of it. It's the one with the atrium skylight and the spiral staircase. According to a post
on their WeChat, the Seesaw Coffee
on Yuyuan Lu which launched an empire
, is closing Friday, January 18
. Opened in April 2012, it's been a staggering 7-ish years, which is like 6,000% longer than most coffeeshops in Shanghai. Also makes it possibly the first wanghong
cafe, before wanghong
even congealed as a concept. They're giving away free coffee
from 9am-4pm, with 200 goodie bags of freshly roasted beans going to first comers. Expect crowds, and people taking pictures.
