Hearts were broken when Shanghai's favorite dive bar Specters announced they were closing in October earlier this year. The Beijing Xi Lu venue was gutted, and after a shit show of a Halloween party, the team promised this wouldn't be the last we'd see of them. Looks like they kept to their word.
The new venue is set to be 10 minutes west of the old one on Yuyuan Lu, right by the Jiangsu Lu station, and the boys have already broken ground. They're opening late December with an aim to hit their one-year anniversary mark on December 23, but there's no hard and fast day for cutting the red tape. Here's to more punk-rock, Fireball, fooseball and trouble.
