The Prohibition-era speakeasy facade, while initially designed to remain inconspicuous, has been picking up a head of steam in places like Shanghai, with the anonymity of its original purpose vanishing into thin air. With the spike of old-timey watering holes, there was never a better time for partners and mixologists at The Press sandwich shop to hop on the bandwagon. Architect Alberto Caiola was brought into the fold to devise a concept unlike any other and did just that by concealing Flask - a clandestine cocktail lounge - behind a vintage Coca-Cola vending machine. Patrons who dare walk through the door are shown into a dark, intimate setting with angular ceilings and low-slung seating. Drinks served up are a product of their environment, with gin and whiskey indulgences dealt out in copious amounts. Still, Flask manages to find a delicate balance between the speakeasies of old and new and even if nothing more than a lounge, just getting there promises to be an experience.
