Named after the two friends who started it, this live music venue has a loyal following among serious local rockers and the fans who love them. With cheap prices and some of the city's best underground rock shows, 2 Kolegas impresses with live jams, rock gigs and a hip indie crowd. The lawn outside is a classic summertime hangout.

I've come to 2K a handful of times since 2006, and I have never not had fun. The atmosphere and energy of the place an the bands that play here are always great. I love the layout of the place, with lots of dark space at the back if you want to observe quietly, and easy access to the area near the stage if you suddenly decide it's time to dance. Sitting outside on the lawn in the summer is amazing. The whole lambs they cook here are absolutely delicious, probably thanks to all the Ningxia influence. And one time, I drank baijiu here infused with what looked like the bottom of a swamp, and I was not hungover the next morning. Impressive.

Went there for their first night after renovations and lo and behold, new toilets! They're squat toilets, but given the impressive way the other ones used to get ruined this is a much better option. They'll still get messy, but us girls won't have to wonder how we're meant to sit... The place is as good as it always has been, though. Excited to get back out there more often. Missed it, this place is like home!

Dos Kolegas is a great spot, like hanging out in someone's yard party from eons ago when i was in college in Canada ... also, great to bring kids to boot around while music plays and beer/drinks/chuan'r get consumed. Not many places still have sofas outside ... If you are looking for clean and fancy, 2K is not the space for you, it is what it is.

2Kolegas is my favourite live music venue and hangout in Beijing, and has been for many years. Sure, it's not the "classiest" bar in Beijing, but that's exactly the point. The bar is as raw as some of the live music that blares from the speakers. It's rock n' roll without the pretentiousness - the way it should be. The laid-back approach of 2kolegas may sometimes be a shock to first time visitors, especially those used to having their cocktails brought by waiters with wegdes up their pants. But then again, where's the fun if you don't rough it up a little? In terms of drinks, all the alcohol served there is real, unlike the nasty stuff they serve you in Sanlitun, and if you're friendly to the staff, the barman may even pour a little extra into your glass. I've never had one of those "fake alcohol" hangovers from the bar, but at the same time have nursed epic two-day hangovers from drinking there until 7am which was totally my own fault. They currently serve Harbin beer and another latin american one i can't remember the name of for 15 kuai a bottle, and draught beer in the summer usually costs 25. Not anymore expensive than other venues. Mixed drinks cost around 30 kuai but since you're getting the real deal, this isn't particularily expensive. The summer is when 2kolegas really springs to life though, with hundreds of people occupying the lawn area and dancing under the open sky. Those with the munchies also have some good options at their disposal at 2Kolegas with at least one guy selling chuan'rs during bigger events. The neighbouring BBQ restaurant is also a good choice for meat skewers, salads etc. In my opinion 2Kolegas is hands down Beijing's most chilled out rock n' roll bar.

Been there on my first month in Beijing, more than a year ago. Still remeber my happy e-mail the next day "there is a Reggae scene in Beijing". This place really stands out, with it's laid back, someone's back-yard atmosphere.

Hmm, i paid 30 RMB for a mixed drink and it was quite small, to be honest. Just not my kind of thing....

Hum ok I don't agree with the latest review..I was there last weekend also, the music was indeed awesome but the drinks were not expensive! I mean come on, 25 RMB for a gin&tonic?! However, they were not good quality but hey it's Beijing. The terrace was great, relaxed yet lively, with some very nice people. Very good place for a summer night with a Woodstock feeling!

Went there last weekend. Music was AWESOME... But i thought it was pretty overpriced. 50 RMB entrance fee, and the drinks are not that cheap either (but at least good quality). For the fact that the place itself was a hole, I thought it was pretty overpriced... I doubt I will go again, I hate feeling ripped off...

2 Kolegas is not classy, nor is it the sort of place you'd want to take your parents. But then again, neither is rock'n'roll. Every time I go there I feel like I've been taken by a mutual friend to one of the cool kids' garage jam sessions. I get nervous and awkward, just like I used to during puberty 15 years ago. The music is fantastic, but I often end up outside drinking cheap beer. Now that it's warm enough outside, I can't wait for regular events on the lawn. A not-to-be-missed stop on the Beijing nightlife crawl.
