A speakeasy in the 1930s-Shanghai mold, it is fronted by a traditional noodle shop festooned with parasols and antique birdcages that serves a mean bowl of Ba Mee Moo Dang (BBQ pork with egg noodles in broth). Step past the curtained entrance and it’s whole new world, with a vintage casino-style bar, leather couches, Qipao-clad lovelies that pose atop the bar-top or on swings, and a jazz soundtrack. The libations are strong and aromatic, like the “Empress of India,” a delicious blend of vodka, dragon fruit, marjoram, and lime.
