The founder of this blog and former main editor is a Chicago guy and as such, has presumably spent many a night partying away at Crobar. The infamous Chicago nightlife hotspot has outposts in Lebanon and Buenos Aires and took stabs at the New York and Miami scene. Well, now its coming to Beijing, opening in the Solano complex just north of Chaoyang Park's west gate and extremely close to Lucky Street. Still no word on when it will open, but like a lot of things, it could be open before the Olympics.
Sure the Cubs and Sox have yet to come to Beijing, and you can't get a decent deep dish pizza (or any for that matter), but having Crobar is a step in the right direction.
