Privy 5 Overview

Share |

Classic never goes out of style. This is perhaps the best way to describe Constellation. Nestled in the French Concession on the trendy shopping street Xinle Lu, this place was once called a "hidden gem," as it is prized among expats for its finely conceived and exhaustive selection of cocktails. Though it might no longer be considered hidden, Constellation has never really lost its charm as it continuous to offer a wide selection of extensive yet inexpensive cocktail menu served with expertise just like the old times. This tiny, low-lit, low-key music rectangular bar does not only offer classic cocktails and whiskeys, it also has cigars. Constellation’s specialty is single malt whiskeys, about 300 varieties to choose from. These premium malt whiskeys came from all over the world – Canada, US, Scotland, Japan and Ireland. If you would like a dish to complement it with, slices of Italian ham and Chinese melon would be perfect. When it comes to cocktails, their specialty is the Shanghai Romantic – a mixture of grenadine, gin, blue curacao and triple sec – taste wasn’t really sweet, but divine. True to its name, Constellation bar can be a collection of stars and things that sparkle so it’s bound to get crowded at times due to being a more intimate spot.  Nevertheless, the service is efficient and inevitably helps make it a great place to hang out with friends.
