Secret Door Leads to Speakeasy

In China, a hidden door provides the only separation to the ultimate juxtaposition between light and dark and lunch or spirits in Flask and The Press. No one is the wiser as the vintage Coca Cola vending machine leading to the hidden lounge doesn’t look particularly out of place against the wall of The Press sandwich shop and this is exactly what makes Flask different amid the number of speakeasy-themed bars sprouting around the area. Located in Shanghai’s former French concession, Alberto Caiola came up with the awesome concept and designed the marvelous space containing a bevy of liquor on display, dim lighting to set the mood, and a collection of modern furniture pieces to round out the cool factor. From the gradual shades of the floorboards to varying the heights of seats and tables for a dynamic effect, no design details were spared to give each visitor the ultimate lounge experience.
