What appears to be nothing than a colorful but simple Shanghai sandwich shop is hiding something much more substantial. Amid the room of modern, brightly colored fixtures is a classic Coke vending machine tucked away in the corner. But waiting inside is not a cache of soda bottles, but the entrance to ‘Flask,’ an upscale, trendy cocktail bar.
The contrast is significant and immediately felt. The bar features high-end accompaniments with dark features splashed with amber lighting. A floor-to-ceiling shelving unit is filled with 25 liter bottles of whiskey. A wall installation pays homage to the bar itself, with three rows of flasks masked behind a hidden dark gray layer.
