At 189 Yongkang Lu (that’s over on the quiet half) there’s this tiny, underrated cocktail bar called Magpie
. There’s always jazz on the stereo, the owner is always there, the cocktails are good and never much more than 50rmb, and it just feels really homey and lived in. That's been there for three years. Last week, Magpie 2
hatched on Wanping Lu, behind a wooden door on a long, empty stretch of road. Walk by too quickly and you might miss it.
