A Speakeasy at Workers Stadium in Beijing
Opened in 1959, Workers Stadium is one of the early signature projects of the People's Republic of China. These days, it is home to the local football team, Beijing Guoan, the site of major concerts, and a hub for a great many restaurants, nightclubs, and bars. Among the quirkier venues is Fubar, a speakeasy built into the base of Gongti. More precisely, it is built behind the hot dog shop called Stadium Dog that is built into the base of Gongti. To reach Fubar, go through the shop, down the steps and find the secret button. Press it and watch as a wall slides open to reveal a two-level bar that, in contrast to the brightly lit Stadium Dog, has dim lighting, dark wood trim and deep red walls. Fubar occasionally has live music or comedy shows, but more often is simply a spot to grab a few drinks with friends. First-timers tend to go for the cocktails, served in Buddha-shaped glasses—you can take them home—or to try the draft "Fubeer." Unsurprisingly, after a few pints, they also tend to grab a hot dog or two on the way out.
