1 Shoubi Hutong
Another victim of the summer brickings, Fang has moved from its eponymous hutong to a new spot just south of Gulou Dong Dajie. As with the original, the focus is on unique cocktails that draw upon Chinese flavours; expect ingredients like red bean paste in the Monkey King (65RMB) and Beijing suannai in the Dharma Rum (65RMB). It’s not just gimmicky elements, though – these bevs are carefully balanced and pack a boozy punch. The new space is bigger than the original, although that’s not saying a lot, so it still feels cosy and intimate, and the posters of Beijing gigs and venues gone by that plaster the walls add to the feeling of being part of the local community. Monday and Tuesday are buy-two-get-one free on cocktails and whiskies; with such a central location and strong community ties, we reckon the new Fang is downright Fangtastic.
