Please note Cold Drinks Bar will open @7pm tonight!
Once and long ago in that time when the world had again fallen in love with Shanghai, there was a little bar serving cocktails to everyone of interest in the French Concession...Who? Gangsters, Artists, Poets and Presidents, of course. This bar was called Cold Drinks, we think, and to have found refuge inside, was a rare treat -- even for a President. The things you did and said inside Cold Drinks were jewels lost to time; Join us again...share laughter, create your own story...or two and have a Cold Drink.
