Shanghai seems to have infinite options for bars and restaurants, and yet it still seems to lack a convenient option. Restaurateur Camden Hauge (Egg, Bird, Bitter and Kin Urban Thai Kitchen), along with design studio Wolfbelly have recently opened up a Japanese whiskey highball bar called Lucky Mart that will also be serving typical convenience store snacks up until 4am.
Located on Fumin Lu, Lucky Mart has a distinctive logo of a blue daji lucky cat with beaming red eyes to bestow harmony and good fortune upon all its guests – which everyone needs in this tricky time. The bar offers a wide variety of whiskeys, from its super-friendly priced house highball to higher-priced offerings. If you're feeling extra fancy, jump straight to the top shelf and find yourself with the more unique and vintage stuff. Apart from the whiskey, experience other classics like mizuwari or oolong-hai to draft Japanese beers, and a fridge full of classic convenience store cup pours.
Feeling munchy after all that drinking? Enjoy some Konbini-style snacks such as cult Japanese candies, prepackaged sandos, à la carte izakaya-like bites, and even some fancified Top Ramen. So why not start stopping by Lucky Mart instead of your typical convenience store?
