Dean's Bottle Shop

Bar in French Concession

This nirvana for lovers of the grain (and, to a lesser extent, grape) has row upon row of imported bottled bliss – Moosehead lager, Old Rasputin, tequila, rum, bourbon, widely sourced vino – all at bargain prices. With more than enough labels to test even the most well-travelled palates, it's more shop than bar, but you can sit down at the long communal table.
