You may or may not find the real Cobra Lily in the new eatery joint in Shanghai’s Xintandi complex but it can sure boggle your mind as to Cobra Lily’s true identity.
The Pan-Asian restaurant is designed by hcreates and headed by Hannah Churchill with a mysterious lady in mind. The restaurant makes you think about clandestine meetings and hush-hush affairs that Cobra Lily is sure to engage in. Yet, nobody really knows who and where Cobra Lily is but the hunt for the femme fatale is only made more interesting by its fun, clever, and inviting interiors. After all, the design was formed under Churchill’s principle: “Design should be simple, fun, and clever.”
The restaurant is made in an early 1900’s building with intact archways and alleyways. It has a DJ booth, an atrium, and pocket lounge areas.
