    They are not the king of cocktail anymore, challenged left and right, but you still get a decent drink there after all these years.

    Used to be my favorite cocktail bar, but it seems like all the knowledgeable bartenders have left. Great hangout still, just stick to the menu.

    Very good cocktails, though pricey at 70-100 yuan each. Place gets really smoky later at night. Get there early as they only allow people in as per seating.

    Was there when a waiter chased down a person trying to skip on a bill. "I will kill you" he shouted as he went berserk and made a scene. Scary !! But the drinks are good and the atmosphere stellar.

    They jacked up their cocktail prices by 20%. The extra profits go to pay off the Uyghur drug lords at the bottom of the stairs
