HHB Music House (the HHB stands for Happy Honey Badger) is a tech-space, lounge & bar providing Spanish tapas and paella, live music, jam sessions and comedy shows. Honey Badger is one of the members in the Alibaba Zoo (more famous members including the Tmall Cat, Hema Hippo and Fliggy Pig) and it's not only the mascot of Alibaba's processor company, but also the face of this music house. They have odd little bits of tech dotted about: AR "wine" projection, "emotional mirrors" and "green energy projection." As you'd expect from the live house of one of China's richest men, they've got Iberico and oysters, paired Mars Sours‘ red wine from Jack Ma's own chateau. They also host regular jam sessions: blues & jazz, pop and indie all welcome. They also do stand-up comedy open mics and Latin nights.
