I read in The Pomegranate‘s weekly e-newsletter that this Shunyi bar is opening a cellar under its side-room. Intrigued, I figured it might be the makings of a new wine hangout. Instead, the recently discovered cellar has been renovated and, says P-granate’s Mike, “We’re now using it to store wine and drinks, etc, and embarking on building a wood-fired pizza oven area in the space above.” That works, too.
The Pomegranate is rare not only because it’s a bar in Shunyi, but also because it’s one of the few places with a mix of Beamish Irish Stout on tap, a 42-inch flat panel screen, wireless, a weekly pub quiz (Wednesdays), and South African biltong*, citronella candles and bundles of firewood on sale (they deliver).
Sounds like a place worth a visit.
By the way, the bar will hold its annual “Rynostock” music festival on May 19. The newsletter says more than a dozen bands played last year and raised money for charity. Those wishing to play at this year’s festival should Mike at 13801-103-933.

* That’d be South African beef jerky.
