Chinatown Glam: Fu Lu Shou is a too-cool-for-school rooftop bar on Hollywood Road, serving overseas Chinatown favorites and cocktails on the top floor of a nondescript commercial building.
Look & Feel: To get up to Fu Lu Shou, you first need to enter a four-digit code downstairs and then ride up a rickety old lift to the seventh floor. The bar itself has a sizable terrace that is actually larger than the interior itself. Choose from lounge seats, bar tables, or regular dining tables at this industrial-chic hangout.
On the Menu: Moreish bar bites like wings, spring rolls and giant siu mai are on offer, as are stir-fried and deep-fried sharing platters like sweet and sour pork and spicy-salty-garlicky tofu. Of course, you’re more likely here for a drink on the terrace, in which case you can enjoy cheekily named cocktails like the rum-based Typhoon No. 8 or the Chrysantini made with Beefeater gin.
The Loop Loves: The crispy tofu comes with copious amounts of garlic chips, and the Aussie-style pork siu mai are the literally the size of a fist. Pair with a spicy Jou Sahn cocktail, made from fresh chilis, lemongrass syrup, ginger juice and Ketel One vodka.
Service: The service is nothing fancy here, but you can expect attentive staff attending to your whims and boozy needs.
Great For: Come here for a casual meetup or a breezy alfresco experience.
