Red Capital Club (Xīnhóngzī jùlèbù) Review

Occupying a restored courtyard home, replete with a Cold War–era bomb shelter down below, the Red Capital Club oozes nostalgia for the early days of revolutionary China. Kitschy Cultural Revolution memorabilia and books dating from the Great Leap Forward era adorn every nook of the small bar, while the theme of the dining room is more imperial. The fancifully written menu serves old favorites of Communist leaders, though flavors are somewhat toned down for the foreign palate.

    highest price & lowest quality

    Our experience, with a group of eight people, was unanimously BAD. We resorted to being positive by Coffee time, saying AT LEAST we had the pleasure of meeting up. at almost 900Yuan for two (almost $65 per head) including 1 BEER (that's IT), the so so, stodgy and thouroughly unexciting food came across as a complete rip-off! The courtyard is ok (seen better) and the service did its best, sharing the competence of a trained waiter between the gaggle of 5 or so, prowling aimlessly around the tables. We just moved here, but friend's who've lived here a year say it was waaay overpriced for what it was too
