Sophisticated Cocktail Scene, Yep in Chengdu
Nov 2015 • Friends
This place would be easy to walk by even in the light of day, but is well worth a drop in for after-work cocktails or a plain old bender. We headed there for a drink based on the recommendation of a colleague, and we were pleased we did.

Often bars claim to have specialty cocktails and when you review the menu it's cosmos, mojitos and the like, and it's always a disappointment. The waiters spoke Eenglish, which is not always the case in Chengdu and were not stumped by any of the drink requests we initially made. To test them we asked if they could make a Sazeracs, which requires absinthe. They not on,y had the ingredients but whipped us up a couple of Sazeracs, which were perfect!

The downstairs seating accommodates maybe 13-14 people: about 9 at the bar and 4-5 at a small table at the front window. There also seemed to be upstairs seating but I didn't check it out. The place feels comfortable; a good mix of locals and expats. The only downside was that they allow smoking inside the bar. If this were in my hometown I'd be a regular.
