By Simon Park

Laid back and stylish, this Shanghai bar is the place to go for any true bon vivant.

This intimate Japanese cocktail bar is a cultural collaboration by Spaniard Willy of El Willy restaurant fame and draws a loyal crowd of Spaniards. The Japanese bartenders craft cocktails with obsessive precision (there are three types of ice – each with a specific purpose) coupled with a select tapas menu by Willy. El-Coctel is one step away from the gimmicky concepts so often seen in this city however Willy’s passion and personality has filled this little bar with soul.
