50-1 Ruijin Er Lu
This small neon-lit bar on Ruijin Er Lu is the sort of place where it’s all but guaranteed that strangers you meet inside will become mates by the end of the night – a feat made even easier by the cheap drinks that taste like they should be double the price. Those prices start from 36RMB for things like a fig leaf-infused G&T rising to 48RMB for signatures like the super spicy Midnight Haircut, garnished with a whole red chilli pepper, or a mischievously named My Tinder Crush that features a confidence-raising mix of kaffir lime tequila, elderflower cordial and prosecco.
