C's Bar 20 Year Birthday Anniversary
Shanghai's most notorious, legendary dive bar is turning 20 years old. Opened by sisters Jenny and Jessie in 2000 who took the slow boat from their hometown near Chongqing -- which was getting drowned for the building of the Three Gorges Dam -- they found a bomb shelter and turned it into a delightfully dirty underground cave with a maze of graffiti sprayed rooms and halls. Countless DJs, event promoters, and future club owners got their start here over the years. It's been a haven for the counter-culture, the creative arts, the lost students, and everyone else. Wong Kar Wai even used it as a setting in a film with Andy Lau and Angelababy. They're celebrating with free entry, starting at 9pm, and DJs Ozone (Antidote, Dada), Howell aka Drunk Monk (SVBKVLT, ALL, Shelter), MauMau (Elevator), Heatwolves (Love Bang, Hologram Dreams), Compact Dicks (Specters)... and more TBC.
