The trap door, the secret passage, the hidden room, the dream of many! Who wouldn’t love to inadvertently open a door and discover a world of mystery? To stumble upon something lost and forgotten or a new world of wonder would be magical. That could very well be your reality if you happen to be in Shanghai, China. Located in a simple sandwich shop, The Press, a vintage Coca-Cola machine stands alone pushed to the back corner. What the old soda machine opens to reveal is nothing short of impressive.

Upon opening the door to the soda machine one will be presented with a short passage way into a hidden bar, Flask. If you’re unable to make the trip to Shanghai to check it out, these photos will give you a good idea of the revealed mystery.

Alberto Caiola architect and designer of the duo rooms expresses, “Flask and The Press is an unconventional duo that upends the traditional speakeasy concept: an intimate contemporary lounge concealed behind the facade of a cheery, sandwich shop. Together, they’re a juxtaposition of light and dark, elegance and funkyness, personal and playful.” What they have created is both beautiful and intriguing.
