Bohemian meets business at the Chinaski Bar, a restaurant-by-day, bar-by-night spot in the heart of the financial district, founded to toast the underdogs, anti-heroes and others that remain true to themselves (or so they say). While its website proclaims, “no bar, no disco,” Chinaski is the perfect blend of both. An extensive drink menu has classics and signature cocktails—When a Man Loves a Woman (champagne, quince gin, lemon, almond and plum bitters) goes down silky smooth. Background beats to get you on the dance floor range from RnB and hip hop to house music. The 30-foot long mural by famed graffiti duo Herakut also attracts regular visitors. On Wednesday nights, a live band plays covers and dance classics, and free sushi comes with every drink ordered. Reservations are possible for four or more, with a minimum consumption of 30 euros per person on Thursdays; Fridays and Saturdays reservations can be made for up to six people for a flat rate of 300 euros. While entrance with no reservation is free, you may have to wait in line and there’s a strict door policy—dress sharp.
