Dining Supplement: Happy Hour

As country music legend Alan Jackson so eloquently said, it’s five o’clock somewhere. Even if it’s not, there’s pretty much always a deal on somewhere in Shanghai, so grab a drink and unwind at any of these top happy hour destinations.


With three of the city’s best bartenders behind the pine, CVRVE focuses on cocktail quality and it shows. Every weekday form 5-9pm, CVRVE offers its ‘Rush Hour’ drink deals – a handful of their cocktails, as well as house wines and beers, go for just RMB 38. Pretty cheap for a quality after work tipple!
