Superfly - The Opposite House Description

Situated on The Opposite House’s corner at street level, Superfly – a hip take on Sichuan comfort food hailing from the region's famous "fly" restaurants – feels like a standalone space with its own distinct personality.

The beat is constantly thumping – a stylized rhythmic flow of alternating early 2000s hip hop, new-age Chinese rap and a blend of underground “third culture” nu-jazz that syncopates with ice clinking into glasses, silverware tapping plates piled high with sizzling bites and laughs echoing deep from happy bellies. Superfly oozes trendy coolness and offers crazy good value for what you get. 

The space is divided ergonomically into two main dining sections, plus an outdoor area. The front is more for the bar and nibbles crowd, with a reverberating red backdrop and fluorescent light emitting from the old school TV wall displaying anything from ‘80s cartoons to music videos to dated news episodes. 

The central dining area offers a view of the half open kitchen, flooded with natural light during the day, while the outdoor area affords diners a humming view of busy Sanlitun. The retro take-away window could double as the entrance to a San Fran meets Tokyo curio shop, with neon lights shining on old records, painted fans and pounded aluminum mugs of a bygone Beijing era.  

Clientele spans an attractive cross section of intercultural Chinese, expats, business travelers looking for something with more of an edge and in-the-know foodies. The happening space creates an atmosphere you’d want to spend more than a few hours in, whether it was in Beijing, Shanghai, or even New York or London.
