Beijing Restaurants

Red Capital Club (Xīnhóngzī jùlèbù)

Updated 08/30/2014

Fodor's Review

Occupying a restored courtyard home, and hiding 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. It's worth visiting just to browse the artifacts, having a drink in one of the old leather armchairs (supposedly lifted from the Great Hall of the People), and peek into the bomb

shelter. The fancifully written menu still serves old favorites of Communist leaders, though this place fell off the restaurant radar some years ago.

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

the food doesn't always match the setting

Beautiful place, but the food stinks. Greasy, and flavorless. A 10 for coolness, but a 1 for food.
