The new money

This club is a mystery. Vast amounts of money have been spent on it, but the question is why? With names of cocktails like Warm Dior this place seems aimed at local nouveau riche. However, on a Saturday night visit it was empty with more staff than customers. There is no dance floor and the club seems to consist of tables and chairs. It is lit by red neon tubing and the panels there are big screens playing hip-hop videos.

If you care for an unsual treat, however, check out the lounge-styled bathroom with its lavish finish including mingling couches for a very high-class, chic pit stop in between drinks. The music is not overbearingly loud. Two bars are filled with juggling tenders. Some items on the menu reach well into the thousands. Cocktails and beer are around RMB50. This club is best left to the whisky and green tea crowd. Perfect for: individual service.
