125 Nanchang Lu
One of Shanghai's longest surviving bars, this small laid back lounge, also known as Yin Yang, draws the hipster crowd for its great, somewhat bohemian café style atmosphere, respectable cocktail list and a great nightly happy hour. The drinks aren't as cheap as some other bars nearby (bottles of Duvel will set you back 50RMB, for example), but this is still one of our favourite haunts in the city.
