This lounge offshoot of the Beijing original reproduces classic and rare cocktails with reverential precision. All the bitters, tinctures, and fruit syrups are made in-house. Highly descriptive, the extensive menu includes the Dark and Old Fashioned, made with Valrhona cocoa–flavored aged rum, cinnamon syrup, and cherry vanilla bitters. The contemporary interior of bare brick, leather, and hardwood is softened by a 1930s jazz and swing soundtrack and a long bar that's a perfect spot for Shanghai's white-collar cocktail set to sip, socialize, and network.—Gary Bowerman
