Baijiu is not only China’s most popular spirit, but it means “booze” in Cantonese, and this sexy, 1930s Shanghai-style cocktail bar lives up to its name.
Drinks are laced with Asian- inspired ingredients, from soju and Suntory Whisky to umeshu and chrysanthemum tea. Hip hop booms in the main room, but in-the-know imbibers whisper to a host to get whisked to the tiny, jazzy, 16-seat Little Hong Kong speakeasy hidden in the back.
