SWEET & SOUR
Nanjing Xi Lu, Shanghai, 230sqm
Upon first entry you arrive in a space mimicking a typical western Chinatown takeaway - gaudy Chinese lanterns, pale walls and waving lucky cat. Hidden behind a red beaded curtain you proceed to the main space which opens out into a sleek, industrial style restaurant and bar. Elevated floor platforms separate the dinners from the bar crowd. Soft lighting glows out from behind rustic perforated panels creating an intimate atmosphere.
