A speakeasy from the future? A set from Blade Runner? A club from a world where the 1930s never ended? Maybe Cold Drinks is all three. This is an atmosphere forward bar, a place where darkness, neon, and strangely evocative designs all mesh and make you feel both at home and totally lost. The drinks? Creative, tasty, but also pricey. Save this for a special occasion, sure... but also, please, try to find some more special occasions in your life. And finally, if you are looking for a dive to get hammered while you eat delivery pizza with your buddies? There's plenty of those places already, go someplace else. Leave this for the grownups.

“It’s a pseudo-secret, just above the bustling scene at China Live, accessible via stairwell; black bats painted on the walls lead the way to the door. Inside is a swanky, Scotch-filled bar where the bartenders wear tuxedos, and the vibe is modern Shanghai with a dash of old school San Francisco. Drinks are heavy on the Scotch, and there are many to choose from, so don’t be shy.” – High-End Scotch Concoctions Headline the New Menu at Chinatown’s Cold Drinks Bar – EaterSF
