99 Yandang Lu, near Nanchang Lu, Huangpu District, Shanghai, China

A trio of experiences make up this destination, each as dumbfounding as the last at this ironically named bar. There are small plates at Sober Café and modern Chinese dining at the Sober Kitchen. But it's the Sober Society that attracts alcohol aficionados thanks to creative cocktails such as the Take a Break (hoji-cha whiskey, hinoki syrup, lavender bitters, citrus, egg white) and the Godfather III. A 'secret' bar called Tipsy, hidden somewhere in the building, is also rumoured, so keep eyes fully peeled.
