Located right in the middle of the ground floor of Taixing Lu hub Zhong Plaza, this bright new cocktail bar sits at the heart of a much larger bar and restaurant complex. It’s handsome but casual space with tiled walls and flattering lighting, the décor full of subtle nods to the colonial, with paddle fans spinning overhead. The bar tenders are seriously dapper and the service here is skilled and efficient. These guys know and care about what they’re doing. The drinks list picks up on this theming with cocktails including the Tom Yum Colada, a southeast Asian twist on the pina colada. The Roasted Pineapple Old Fashioned is also worth a look – that combination sounds all kinds of yum. On the food front expect southeast Asia snacks and nibbles, things like fish cakes, crispy prawns and spring rolls.
