On the quieter side of Shankang Li lies this astrology-themed bar from Geo Valdivieso (The Broken Dagger and Klay). While the provocative red decor makes a site destined for dates, it’s the 12-strong drink menu that’ll initiate the conversations – each based on a star sign and equipped with their own horoscope (written by Shanghai astrologer Alex Wang). If those don’t spark up budding romances, there’s always the 13th cocktail that invites guests to get interactive behind the bar and conjure up their own creations.
