Add:98 Wuyuan Rd
Senator Saloon is a new craft cocktail bar on Wuyuan Road, amidst the fashion and lifestyle boutiques lining the street, from the people behind Citizen Cafe and Sichuan Citizen. It's a Prohibition-era speakeasy themed bar, with an emphasis on design from the period. Prohibition - which from 1920 until 1933 banned the manufacture, sale and transportation of liquor in the United States - ironically heralded the beginning of a new era of glamor and innovation in cocktails, as drinking establishments went underground. Senator Saloon features a dimly lit darkwood interior, a Texas-style tin ceiling, flock wallpaper from southern California and exposed brick walls. The menu features prohibition-era cocktails, with classics including Sazerac for 72 yuan (US$11.2), Old Fashioned (68 yuan) and Aviation (68 yuan). Oak barrel-aged cocktails will soon also be introduced. The bar also provides an extensive list of American bourbons and whiskeys. To accompany craft cocktails, bar food is available, such as grilled edamame soy beans - very tasty, shrimp cocktail, sandwiches and desserts, all at prices ranging from 26 to 78 yuan.
