1276 Huaihai Zhong Lu
Run by the wife of Constellation owner Jin Zonglei, Southern Cross for some reason has escaped the attention of its sister bars. But that's fine, as it keeps the atmosphere relaxed and means there's no problem getting a seat in the lounge-like front room. It may feel like walking into someone's house (which is part of the charm), but the drinks are of a highly professional standard, making this one of our favourite Japanese cocktail bars.
