Monkey Lounge a hip oasis

FOR a city that never sleeps, Shanghai is one of those strange cities that has bars and restaurants constantly opening and closing.

But hidden amongst the bustle of the city is Monkey Lounge, a hip watering hole where the clientele is unpretentious and the cocktail list is limited but perfect.

Mind you, it’s a little difficult locating the bar. A small monkey statue carved into the door is the only indication you have that you’re at the right place. Buzz yourself in, and punch in some numbers.

A maître d will greet you at the door and escort you to one of the snazzy tables.

And if cocktails ain’t your thing, check out the whiskey selection.
