With a gorgeous terrace overlooking the Gulf, and Manga movies projected onto the fish tank-studded walls, the longstanding Sho Cho has managed to never let go of its status as a super-hip Japanese-themed bar. Sophisticated, classy and dead trendy, this is where the ‘beautiful’ people (at least in their opinion) go to play, pose and look pretty. This won’t be to everyone’s taste, but there’s no denying they do what they do extremely well. One word of warning: Tuesday, Sunday and the weekend nights are rammed, so phone ahead for reservations or arrive as a couple – the door policy is notoriously anti-single men.
