Rye & Co
This Nordic eatery and bar concept occupies the sixth and seventh floor of the shiny new Xintiandi mall, coming with a superb view of the city. Rye & Co mixes up some of the most unique drinks you’ll find in Shanghai. Their Tom Yum Goong-Colada, made with Thai-spiced gin and flavours of pandan, coconut and curry, tastes like a Southeast Asian holiday. Their RasPutin cocktail, made with butter-infused tequila (produced in-house) and chocolate bitters, is gleefully served in a glass with a chocolate rim. You get a bit of chocolate in every sip! They also serve the classics if requested, alongside a short but sweet list of beers and wines.
