Enjoyed as both an artist and audience member. Good stage, sound, sight lines; friendly. Interesting range of world music artists. In one of the older neighbourhoods of Beijing.

Came to see a live jazz mini concert. Not easy to locate. Great ambience. Ticket price was more reasonable. Of course the level of comfort could not match with that offered at Bluenote Beijing. Perfect for a causal chill out.
