My favourite time in Modernista is when Mademoiselle et Son Orchestre are performing. With French gypsy jazz in the air and people happily dancing along, improvising swing moves as they go - I think that's the essence and the soul of that place. Carefree with a twist. The only problem is that people keep coming and coming, and no one seems to be leaving, so you'll be lucky if you can find a place to stand, let alone sit. And even if you do, some cheerful drunk person with no control of their motor skills might fall on your table and spill your drinks, or walk all over your feet, or hit you in the face while dancing, making the night really unforgettable. Still, I would definitely recommend going there, the place has a very special insouciante vibe that I've hardly seen anywhere else in Beijing. But if you do go, hold on to your drinks. And learn how to dodge :P
I went along for the Open Mic night. Which was a total blast. The house band played first and a few of them were happy to join those jumping up on stage (like me). Great vibe to the place, friendly staff and - due to the time of year - great mulled wine.
A very convenient eat right next to my home in Fuli city. This is the most authentic Italian bistro in the entire area. I used this place as my canteen for its high quality food and service. The popular parma ham pizza could be the best pizza in Beijing. Services in this small bistro is excellent, staff are so attentive, basically when you want something, the wait staff is already in front of you. Glasses are already filled. An excellent arrival at Fuli City.
