No. 1 Xinyuanli
NileGuide Expert tip:
Visit on the weekens
This very international whiskey bar specializes in whiskey, but with private KTV rooms, a decent wine list and a jazz-centered music policy you could be anywhere from Nanjing road to New Orleans.
The high ceilings, brick walls and comfortable seating make this a mysterious and disjointed establishment to enjoy a weekend drink. The only drawback from the otherwise serene appeal is the giant TV mounted behind the bar where jazz scenes play out in all their flashing neon glory.
Best visited during the busier weekend hours, the bar remains open on weekdays and attracts a steady stream of locals and regulars.
