China Club Suggestions by BB Deng
Lantern club (Beijing)
Better residents and more international artists, with two rooms of tunes. The key difference is this: the owners see music as more than simply a means to keep people shelling out for overpriced cocktails. Lantern bumps techno most nights but has been adding more flavors all the time.
The crowd is infinitely less obnoxious than neighboring clubs but thinner – and we don’t mean in the waistline. You’ve certainly got room to move. On quiet nights, probably too much. Lantern is underground perfection – when they’re throwing an event.
The round 2 night club is determined from the early days of the concept of excellence, attitude and management beliefs. The architectural environment strives to create a synchronous global genuine electronic music space, and invited famous Chinese architectural designer Roy Zhuang to create the most pure and underground construction environment; While absorbing the essence of the famous European night field design, the symbolic language and light atmosphere of the exaggerated lines are used to create the somatosensory characteristics, and to find the resonance between the environment and the original level of mood.
