One place that's for sure closing is cocktail bar / harvester of starfish baijiu, Magpie. That's a shame. For Sunday's closing party from 4pm-10pm, they're doing 100rmb open bar on Magpie Mules. Take a shot of the starfish juice with boss Jackie -- it's good for health. Luckily, Magpie 2 on Wanping Lu is still open. Great place.
A simple-and-refreshing summer cocktail.
Here they come to snuff the rooster? You know he ain't gonna die? Not yet, anyway. Rooster celebrates their four-year anniversary on Saturday with some solid deals from 12pm-9pm. Those include 15rmb Heineken bottles, 20rmb Kentucky IPA bottles, 20rmb moonshine cocktails, 25rmb hipster ale, 30rmb Boxing Cat Contender, and six shots of Sinfire for 60rmb. Not bad! At 9.45pm they have a bus going to Rooster 2.0 in Jing'an for happy hour prices until midnight. No cover.
Just hope that bakery and the auntie / uncle beer shop can stay open. More news as we get it.
