Just outside the glass elevator that leads to K11's roof garden, these big illustrated signs tell the stories behind classic cocktails: grandpa's favorite, the Negroni; the nectar of the nighthawks, the Martini; The Dude's drink of choice, the White Russian. None of these cocktails were available on day one of the Shanghai Cocktail Festival, which is on through the holiday weekend.

But there are several booths from our friends at alcohol conglomerates Martel, Bacardi, Rémy Cointreau, and Omnicorp. Under the setting sun, DJ Rocky Ross played Sublime on a ratty soundsystem as blinding purple and pink lights swirled around the roof's two halves and alcohol company suits mingled with mystery PR / media ladies. Perhaps "festival" is not the best way of describing this. Maybe "gathering", "function", or "product demonstration" is more accurate.
