The Odd Couple – Shanghai, China

They are two of the world’s best­-known bartenders and they each have their own approaches to the craft: Steve Schneider, the brash, quick­-talking (and even quicker pouring) American from New Jersey; and Shingo Gokan, all fluidity and movement with purpose, who got his start in bartending in Japan, conquered New York and opened a couple of bars in China. When you put them together behind one slab of mahogany built for bar service, you get The Odd Couple. They’re drawing on a 1980s theme – “a reimagining of the future from the past” is how they describe it – and will offer a cocktail list drawing on eight taste profiles. Expect fireworks of flavour and one hell of a good time.
