Guillermo “Willy” Trullas Moreno of El Willy tapas restaurant has widened his portfolio with this Japanese-style cocktail bar in the 47 Yongfu development. The venue has a lounge-y feel, with vintage furniture and orange-toned dividing walls made of patterned glass.
The strict no-standing policy means that it never gets crowded. However, it also means that you may have to wait for a table.
Cocktail prices are standard for Shanghai. It’s worth it for the quality of the ingredients; the Spanish-style sandwiches are highly recommended.
