Hope & Sesame

Top choice Cocktail Bar

in Guangzhou

The booze boffins at this speakeasy have an on-site lab with bubbling stills for bespoke spirit infusions, resulting in some of the most creative top-shelf cocktails in China. Though they are masters of their craft, the vibe is louche and playful, with chatty bartenders and live jazz from 8.45pm till midnight. Book two days ahead if coming on Friday or Saturday.
