Bad/good news for fans of little beer shops: the original Beer Plus
on Changshou Lu, a formulaic but very welcome beerfridge-supermarket from the wonderful people behind Dada
, will be closing on April 13 after a little over a year and a half in operation. The team cited a "business model adjustment by the landlord." Hazarding a guess that the new business model looks a lot like the old business model but with "ask for more rent" scrawled across it? Just a guess. That's the bad news. The good news is that the Gubei
and People's Square
venues are staying open, and also they're doing buy-one-get-one deal on all beers at the Changshou store from April 11 to April 13.
