Shingo Gokan’s second Shanghai outpost, Sober Company is the most recent in his impressive stable of eight bars across China and Japan. The three-tiered concept is made up of a cafe, restaurant and bar. New York-style Sober Café serves breakfast and coffee until the late afternoon, when aperitivo and coffee cocktails are the name of the game. Line your stomach upstairs with modern Chinese cuisine in Sober Kitchen at tables decorated with mahjong tiles, before heading up to Sober Society – the top spot for cocktails – and sip on the likes of Local Happiness, which uses a local gin as its base, with longjing tea, mandarin and a scoop of bergamot sorbet. Should you complete your mission of three spots in one visit, you just might discover hidden bar Tipsy, for the motto here is appropriately “come sober, leave tipsy”.
