Something Description

Something first soft opened in fall 2020 on Wukang Lu – a brunch café, wine and cocktail lounge and global cuisine-inspired restaurant housed in a expansive space. Yet somehow each concept works both on its own and as a collective – a textbook example of how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 

Although seating fits over 80 people, the dining area feels intimate because its divided ergonomically into four sections – imploring aesthetically pleasing elements like a fish tank filled with succulents or an intricately carved table laden with a multi-tiered candle and floral display. Each section has its own lighting elements – UFO lights in front of the repurposed shipping container-cum-open kitchen, globe lights highlighting worn Persian rugs and family beach photos in the main vaulted-ceiling ‘living room’ and low-hanging bulbs intertwined with a terrarium-esque display of suspended greenery in the southeast corner. Whereas the bar area feels more industrial, walking towards the sweeping balcony brings you into a world of boho chic, with ample lighting at all hours of the day streaming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
