A typical Melbourne laneway gem - no name outside and no street number - you just have to be 'in the know'. With decor typical of a derelict bar in downtown Beijing, propaganda adorns the walls, lights are dim and you need to grab a stool to sit on - this is one memorable place to enjoy a Tsingtao beer and a steamer basket.

Like any good Melbourne bar, a name, number or sign is not required here. But once you’ve found this ‘hole in the wall’ socialism-meets-retro themed bar, all is forgiven. Choose from a delicious range of cocktails (all named after infamous moments in communist history) or order up a Tsingtao beer with a couple of yum cha steamer baskets on the side.

No name or street number out the front but this retro space is small, friendly and great for knocking back a Tsingtao Chinese beer or Politburo cocktail and a couple of yum cha baskets. Chinese socialist propaganda posters adorn the walls with some Mao artefacts adding character.
