There’s A Hidden Bar Behind This Vintage Coke Vending Machine in Shanghai

There’s a vintage Coca-Cola vending machine in Shanghai that hides a delightful and tasty secret – it’s actually a door into a stylish up-scale speakeasy called “Flask.”

The otherwise unassuming Coca-Cola machine stands in The Press, a sandwich shop that operates as a front for the trendy bar hidden behind it. As Alberto Caiola, the architect who designed this establishment, writes, “the fun, lighthearted feel, the bright colours and lighting [in The Press] —within a few steps, these elements segue into a mysterious space with warm, muted lighting and the murmurs of bar patrons to invite further curiosity.

The interior fuses both modern and speakeasy-era elements effortlessly, with vintage sofas, muted copper-colored lighting, and a wall covered in 25-litre whiskey bottles.
