133 Sichuan Zhong Lu
Situated inside a historic 100-year-old building near The Bund, the first thing you’ll do upon entering this lavish lounge is admire its impressive neo-classical architecture, and after that you’ll want to cradle a drink at the equally dramatic high-ceilinged stone-top bar. The cocktails here are crafted by mixologist Klaus Yiu (formerly of The Shanghai EDITION) who adds regional elements to his libations – like the bar’s namesake drink Grand Banks that highlights bourbon infused with dried bael fruit alongside dark rum, maple and chocolate bitters. If you’re feeling peckish there’s also a compact menu of food intended to compliment the cocktails.
