Cotton’s Shanghai could well be the "Cheers" of Shanghai -- the bar where everybody knows your name. Just like the bar did for the Boston locals in "Cheers", Cotton's provides a surrogate backyard for French Concession residents. Hunanese girl-next-door Cotton Ding welcomes all comers to her namesake two-storey bar in a historic stone villa and keeps the drinks and conversation flowing.
Whether lounging around the fireplaces in winter or the leafy garden terrace during the warmer months, Cotton’s is one of Shanghai friendliest watering holes.
Weekday happy hours are city staples and simple but social brunches on Sunday are always provide for a good time.
If you're routine is in need of some spice, try Cotton's Xinhua Lu location (294 Xinhua Lu, near Fanyu Lu 新华路294号, 近番禺路) or just order the deliciously spicy Cotton's Fried Rice, but be warned, it is genuinely one of the spiciest treats around so just keep one of Cotton's drinks handy.
