Exclusive hip-hop lounge above Tongren Lu, marked by the team of dark suits manning the barrier. Hard to get in unless you’re on the guest list, or you know someone. They redecorated in 2019, paring down to a single bar off to the side so you don't get the usual press of people looking to get a drink, freeing up space for more table-seating, added in beer pong table, and a big ol' LED screen behind the DJ.
