We've already seen the launch of Mondrian SoHo with its Beauty and the Beast-esque decor in powder blues and polished silver. What we haven't seen yet however is the hip hotel's sexy new speakeasy, Mister H, inspired by Shanghai circa 1930, now in a soft-opening.

One part boudoir and three parts opium den, the blood-red lighting and crimson velour beds (!) are strewn with plump pillows and flanked by antique mirrors, a checkered floor in jade and gold and flickering lanterns - it's one sinister sipping spot.

Helmed by Armin Armiri of Socialista and Bungalow 8, Armiri says he wanted to create a place where Humphrey Bogart would head for a nightcap when he knocked off work as a gumshoe - this fictitious establishment is embodied in Mister H, which will serve up 12 specialty cocktails amid a rumored to be all vinyl funk soundtrack.

Kitschy Touch: A glinting neon sign reminds guests that this is not a brothel, so behave. Also, we've heard that each bed has a phone and each phone is randomly connected to another bed...

Don't say we didn't warn you.
