Stylish Bar Manager & Amazing Cocktails at Heyday

Heyday is a cozy jazz bar on Tai’an Lu. The venue’s ambience differentiates itself from more typical jazz bars by not trying to reproduce an old fashioned style but conveying a chic contemporary feeling through the polished interiors.

The bar is managed by Kimi who is as lovely as she is stylish. If you see her, ask for recommendations. She absolutely nailed my flavor profile and I kept ordering her recommended drink: Take Five, a beautiful vodka based cocktail with refreshing hints of mint, cucumber and pineapple. Pleasantly sour with a sweet note at the end.

Take Five – RMB 92

I also thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful and tasty Love Supreme (header picture).

The quality of the liquors is the highest, which brings the prices up over 90 RMB each. At the same time though you get a good quality, complimentary Jazz show.

Arrive before 8:00 to enjoy their happy hour 50% off and grab a high table at the bar (unless you want to reserve a table where the minimum spending is 1000 RMB).


I will definitely be back!
