This speakeasy is hidden inside of Moon Palace Express. One step into the “kitchen” and you’re transported into a narrow dark room with neon accent lights, like you’re in a scene from Tron. Upbeat hip-hop music gives the room lively energy, but it’s still relaxed enough to chill at the bar or share snacks on their comfy couches without worrying about drunk table dancing. The food menu is short, but does have some highlights, like zesty mapo fries and a pork cutlet sandwich with tonkatsu sauce—both of which go great with one of their unique cocktails like a bold-flavored Old Fashioned made with Chinese five-spice.
