Cube – Sweet Xintiandi.

By Mark Andrews

City Weekend (Shanghai). 30/08/2007

Bar review of Cube in Shanghai’s Xintiandi.

Rubik would be proud. After solving the puzzle of where it is (entrance opposite Kabb and up the elevator) you are greeted with exclusivity. So much so that at the moment there is no menu! Drinks are largely cocktails and being connected to Sugar, the speciality is dessert cocktails (Y80). An apple strudel does a good job of intoxicating Vienna. Other cocktails are martini based. Tiger lily (Y70) with its lychee taste is a summer hit. Whilst the décor is stylish the seats, high and sagging, are not very comfortable. The bar with its semi circular feel and window is quite small but there is a spacious wooden decked terrace. This is definitely one of the few places in Xintiandi to escape the crowds.
