Speakeasy
$$
“This speakeasy nails the concept of an ‘almost impossible bar to find’. The entrance is an unassuming, old-school retractable steel gate which makes you wonder if you should wander in any further. But go on and grasp in the dark a little, push your way through a wooden door to enter this 1920s Shanghai-styled bar beaming with red lanterns, oil paper umbrellas and exposed brick walls. The sprawling interior extends all the way to the back with pockets of seating areas made cosy with oriental partitions and dim-lit walls. Music gets more thumping as the night progresses, but swing by for post-dinner drinks to catch their live band. ”
