Had the wuyang ipa last night--very good! So the hype is real. But the bar itself lacked any sort of decent vibe. Okay Monday night at 11pm is not prime time bar fun hours. But it looked and felt empty inside. Plus after 11pm you cannot sit outside. And then the godawful Michael learns to rock soundtrack. After downing the beer, we got out of there quick.
back again a year on--not as good now. It's still got a bit of a roll-up-in-a-ferrari vibe, but other than that it's too loud and doesn't deliver the hype. It's still packed every night of the week and the two foreigner dudes (one MC and one on an electric rum set) were pretty good. But then a Chinese singer came on and was terrible. The real expensive fashionable people have deserted True Color. Now it's mainly posers and young people looking to brush with celebrity.
Whatever, this place is still pretty fun. It's loud party music, but lots of foreigners and locals and a catwalk thing to dance on. The music stopped for about 5 minutes and someone said it was a police thing, but it came back on shortly and the party started again. Good times. Better than Hyper. Way better.
Surprisingly good, though not cheap. Fun band and then a decent mashup DJ. Lots of foreigners and hip locals. A very welcoming environment unlike a lot of top end mainly Chinese clubs in GZ. Loved the way tall wall of blue lights which seems to go up into infinity. And no cover charge. That's cool.
Yep student bar all the way. I'm told it's a Guangzhou legend and like all legends its a bit frayed around the edges. But dammit it was packed on Saturday night all right. Couldn't get a seat. Beers and cocktails cheap, questionable quality. Music is party fun. But no dancing. and way too smoky.
Wow ladies of Guangzhou you have to check out the buy one get one free Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut by the glass which is available on Friday's at the 8,Faubourg Bar & Terrace. The design and ambiance is über chic and stylish, the food concept is quirky with funky tapas stands and complimentary snacks served in a jewelry box. Resident DJ Nyna is a gem with fantastic music and friendly personality.
