This trendy hutong cocktail spot has remained popular for over five years thanks to its inventive creations and fun twists on the classics.
Co-owner Stephanie Rocard and her team are still pushing the envelope, testing new flavours and infusions to create truly special drinks and making the most of locally sourced ingredients. Mao Mao Chong's own creations like the Mala Mule (45RMB), made with Sichuan peppercorn, and the Ladyboy, made with kaffir lime- and lemongrass-infused vodkas make the tiny, one-room bar stand out as a true Beijing original.
Head down on ‘Lab Rat Thursday’ to try a few of the more off-the-wall bevvies, Wednesday night for '35 kuai Wednesdays' and Tuesday to get some of the superb pizza for 40RMB.
The prices are some of the best in the city (most cocktails 40-50RMB), and the gourmet pizzas are worth a visit alone.
