Beware of Rip-off at the Lan Kwai Fong Music House Bar
Last Sunday night I had been at Mooney's at the Shangri-La Hotel with my foreign friends and some of their out-of-town Chinese clients visiting. Everyone was having a great time. The band finished their last set and we were discussing where to continue the party since Mooney's would soon be closing.
Two Chinese girls had joined our table earlier with one speaking decent English. They suggested Lan Kwai Fong just a five minute walk away. The three of us left first and my friend and his Chinese clients would soon follow after finishing the last of the beer tower.
We soon arrived at Lan Kwai Fong and the girl with decent English suggested the Music House Bar. So far, so good and everything was great, until... we walked in the door.
It was quite large, not crowed being a Sunday night around 1am, and looked nice enough with comfortable sofa style seating all around. I chose a table by the window not too far from the bar. This is when the problems began.
The server came over and handed me a drink menu which she proceeded to open and point to expensive bottles of whiskey which I did not want. I began looking at the rest of the menu and found the cocktail drink list which was in Chinese and English. I chose three (3) Long Island Iced Tea's, 60 RMB each, but again she ignored and took the menu and flipped back to the expensive bottles.
I again flipped back and pointed to the drinks I wanted and she didn't want to take the order at which I cut loose with some "Choice words" in English which were not nice. She angrily stormed-off.
Soon thereafter, she reappeared with three drinks which, even after having consumed numerous beers, they suspiciously did not appear to be Long Island Iced Tea. My first sip confirmed my suspicions were true and we had been served three (3) straight Coca Cola's for a grand total of 180 RMB and they were flat on top of that!
This was enough for me and I jumped-up and stormed over to the corner of the bar closest to the main entrance. I told them this was not a Long island pointing at the menu and just got a dumb look in return. I then became very indignant cutting-loose with more "Choice" words.
There was a young man sitting at the bar who appeared to be a manager and/or owner with a girl sitting next to him that was probably a girlfriend, another manager or owner. This man reached over the bar a grabbed about six bottles and placed them on-top of the bar pointing at them like "Make your own drink!" With this insulting behavior on their part, I returned by cutting-loose with a "WTF is this!" pointing at the bottles.
The girl sitting next to him jumped-up screaming at me to which I politely told her "F*** You! I want my money back!" This went on exchanging "unpleasantries" for less than a minute. Then...
I was unceremoniously bounced outside by about ten (10) of his young male staff. I stood my ground, after getting up, and was still shouting for my money to be returned which they would not do at first. Then a security guard appeared, more people gathering to watch the show and they probably began thinking or were aware there were security cameras watching all this.
They then returned my 180RMB and my bag at the table which I didn't have time to retrieve.
Other than having a few scrapes, cuts, bruises, etc. AND my favorite shirt shredded beyond repair, I suffered no serious injuries. It could have been worse.
Most of you reading this are in all probability much younger than me. I do not usually frequent clubs/discos anywhere such as those found at Lan Kwai Fong, Juyanqiao Bar Street, etc. but I used to in my younger days, but even in those days, I never had this happen.
Yes, I know they want to sell bottles. Yes, I know they sometimes do not mix cocktails like often happened many years ago in Chengdu. Yes, I know such places want to sell tables on peak nights with a table minimum drink purchase requirement. I'm not a newbie in Chengdu or China. But these drinks were on their menu, expensive as they were.
But this behavior of the Music House Bar at Lan Kwai Fong was criminal at best. Furthermore, what they didn't know my friend, who is a semi-high roller, was on the way with the group and probably would have bought a bottle and/or many beers. So they lost-out all the way around including bad publicity and loss of future business.
I've noticed there are other Music House locations in Chengdu, so they should not be confused with this rip-off bar, unless of course, they are owned by the same people who allow things such as this to continue.
Important: Blue Sheep Charity to hold exhibition, Aug 2 in The Spot
If there's ever been a saint walking among us, it is probably Dr. Ray Pinniger. For the past 40 years Dr. Pinnegar has dedicated her life to helping the needy in the poorest corners of the earth. She has spent many years living in the rural communities she is helping, including areas of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, and helped establish modern medicine and sanitation services for the people there.
Blue Sheep is one of her projects, which she initiated here in Chengdu. Dr. Pinniger approaches severely disadvantaged and sick people from disaster struck areas and poor rural communities, largely filled with ethnic minorities, and trains them in arts and crafts. Selling these handcrafts has helped these people maintain a basic standard of living, provided basic needs for them and their families, and in turn, kept them from begging in the streets.
In order to keep them working and motivated, Blue Sheep pays on receipt of products so craftsmen do not have to wait until the product is sold for payment .
Blue Sheep is now opening its shop in Chengdu (add:A Qu Gao Hua 2 Jie No.35, behind the Roman Square Trust Mart) and is designated to be a one-stop gift shop. For fair prices you will have the chance to buy unique, handicrafts in a variety of authentic styles (6 different minorities) and furthermore support the craftsmen that need it most. Any profit generated from this project will be transferred to NGOs and reinvested in the communities to do more good.
Currently, over 500 people are being helped in this way. However, selling these handicrafts is essential for sustaining the project, and currently without a lot of exposure, this responsibility falls on Dr. Pinniger's shoulders. The crafts stock up and the project keeps costing Dr. Pinniger money.
And so, on August 2nd, The Spot will host Dr. Pinniger and Blue Sheep for an exhibition of the arts and crafts, in order to familiarize more people with the project. The exhibition will be held next Saturday (Aug 2), from 12:00 until 18:00. At 16:00 Dr. Pinniger will take the stage and present her project. During exhibition hours, The Spot will be serving complimentary snacks and soft drinks, and will offer other menu items for half price.
Hundreds of people's lives depend on the Blue Sheep project and its support, but its success depends on us, the people of Chengdu, and our support to keep it going.

I am a traveller currently in Chengdu,
Recently I have been given a wounderfull chinese massage (Not in Chengdu) and would like to know if there is anywhere around here that I can study it for about a month or less. Even just if it is the basics, but still the idea of giving a good massage.
Something like intensive course that I can start immediatly, a private teacher would be a good option too.
My level of mandarin is very basic but I am a fast learner and would be willing to make an effort.
Please help me and tell me if you know any place or anyone who is willing to teach intensively.
Thanks a lot,
