Situated in Shanghai’s French Concession, Cross Yu’s bar is a juxtaposition of epic proportions. While its interior welcomes guests with the ambience and comfort of the bars of yesteryear through a collage of exposed brick and stained wooden shelves, cocktails fly out of its bar with the dazzling colours and accoutrements of a bar firmly set in the 21st century. With every drink deliberately injected with playful energy, its motto of “Do epic shit!” comes to life in full technicolour, while keeping its environment accessible to all. The latest in a long list of wild menus is centred around astrology, where drinks such as the Gemini Feel Good will keep your spirits high throughout the night. Regardless of your horoscope, a night in Epic will be one to remember.
