Janes + Hooch is a modern take on a vintage dive bar in the heart of Sanlitun's factory district of Beijing - brought to you by Warren Pang, (The Opposite House, d. lounge) and Milan Sekulic (The Opposite House, East, Cakeshop Consulting). Our aim was to create a unique nightlife experience bringing the best features from the good old days whilst adding modern urban culture. From the unremarkable entrance to the superb witty cocktails and personal service team. The space comprises of exposed brick and wood-panelled walls, polished cement floors and untouched rusted brass ceilings are bathed in flickering candlelight creating the perfect atmosphere for those who want a drink for two or a bigger celebration. Expect to be sipping on Oolong fizzes with Theophilus London and Tom Tom Club beats in the background. We like to call it luxury underground without the pretension.
The name coming from a little inside joke of ours. A tip of the hat to a lost era and ode to our two loves in life; Janes (dames) and Hooch (bathtub booze). The menu is straight forward, quality driven and cheeky. On offer are modern Asian inspired twists on classic themes using local, seasonal ingredients and applying them to core of what makes a classic a classic. The monthly rotating menu is varied and caters to both the casual drinker to the cocktail geek. Down with the pretention of 100 different types of fancy bitters or vintage barreled pours and focusing on taking on local flavors that are not only distinctive and unique but are relative and have context in Northern Chinese culture. We believe in bringing back the fun in drinking.
