WHERE TO EAT IN SAN FRANCISCO
China Live Chinatown

With a retail section, tea and pastry café, two restaurants, a bar and rooftop, China Live is a multi-faceted food emporium that caters to all types of diners. For a casual bite, head to the humming Market Restaurant, where open-plan kitchen stations serve up all sorts from dim sum to noodles. Between sightseeing, pop into Oolong Café, where grab ‘n’ go bites are served alongside a curated list of artisanal teas. – Suitcase (10.25.17)

WHERE TO DRINK IN SAN FRANCISCO
Cold Drinks China Town

Tucked away on the second floor just above the bustling food market at China Live, Cold Drinks is a Scotch-centric bar accessible via a stairwell. Inside, the vibe is decidedly modern Shanghai meets old-school San Francisco, where tuxedo-clad bartenders serve up whiskey-heavy tipples. But with names like the Sword Swallower – served in a tiki mug – the traditional spirit has been given a heavy dose of the cool factor. – Suitcase (10.25.17)
