This relaxed hutong bar is well known for its creative cocktails and reasonably priced international beers and wines. The walls are decorated with art by the bar's multi-talented owners, a husband and wife team who also cook up some of the city's best gourmet pizza. Just east of Nanluoguxiang, Mao Mao Chong is the perfect escape from Beijing's flashy bar district.
Mao Mao Chong is set in a traditional Beijing house with rustic, high-beamed ceiling complemented by a modern concrete and wooden bar, modern artworks and lighting, giving a relaxed homely atmosphere while still being a cool bar.
Still the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Beijing’s flashy bar districts.
At the new Ban Chang location we also offer delicious Italian style thin crust pizza. Leek and blue cheese, pancetta and broccoli, potato, caramelized onion and rosemary are just some of our delicious pizzas on the menu.
We’ve also updated the drinks menu with some new mouth watering cocktails, more beers, warm naughty nightcaps and lots of delicious non-alcoholic concoctions.
Drop by and check it out!

Mao Mao Chong’s re-launch near Nanluoguxiang marks a metamorphosis for the venue and one of the most exciting openings of 2010. Beers start at ¥13 and the specialty cocktails are superb and reasonably priced. Try the MMC martini—tequila, Grand Marnier, honey-infused vodka, fresh ginger and lime (¥35). Now in a large, converted hutong home, MMC has room for art on the walls, skylights and comfortable seating. A former chef at an Italian restaurant in Melbourne, owner Stephen Rocard also makes delicious pizzas with hearty homemade crusts (¥15-55).
