The street level shops of Yongkang Lu, in the Former French Concession area of Shanghai, were first converted from a traditional Chinese meat market, in 2009, to restaurants. In 2012, after the restaurants failed to thrive, the shop spaces were converted to bars catering to young expats. The booming bar business has led to many disputes with the local Chinese residents who inhabit the apartments above these storefronts, leading some residents to pour buckets of water down on the imbibing patrons. A new 10 PM curfew for outside drinking has helped ease tensions in the area. TIP: if you go, sit under an awning.
