NileGuide Expert tip:
Try one of the gastronomy specials
One of the single greatest things to happen to cocktails in Shanghai since the invention of the gin and tonic, Alchemist boasts the best cocktail menu in town. Here's why: Kelley Lee and Eduardo Vargas blend molecular gastronomy with cocktails, which means each cocktail has a liquid nitrogen, infusion, foam, mist or even gel element to it. You can experience your booze in an entirely fresh and new way. These guys are at the forefront of the cocktail innovation movement internationally.
The decor, Victorian-era elegance, is the perfect balance to the modern newness of the cocktails. You'll also find a delightful blend of foods on the menu designed to accompany your drinks perfectly.
