Since 2000 the Bird Bar has been one of Dali's most unique bars, offering a pleasant, friendly environment for people to sit around and chat or play a game of pool or foosball.
We have been notified by Bird Bar owners Zhao Rongjie and Liu Xinmin that they will close the Bird Bar on October 10 after more than 10 years at the top of Renmin Lu.
On October 7, the Bird Bar will throw one last party to celebrate the memories and friendships made over the last decade. The Bird Bar has sent the following invitation to its friends:
Flight Diary——- To All Birds
At the beginning of this year, we were reminded by our landlord that the lease for the bar section of the Bird Bar would be expiring in October. Despite our efforts to negotiate a new contract, an agreement could not be met. Therefore, as of October 10, the Bird Bar will be closed. The Bird's Nest guesthouse behind the bar will remain in operation.
On October 7 at the Bird Bar, we will have a farewell party, and we are inviting all of our dear friends.
Over the past ten years, countless moments have been made at the Bird Bar. It has been the setting of so many stories – stories about having fun, of drinking and laughing, of crying, of stargazing while waiting for the sun, of flying high into the outer limits and then returning back to earth – always together.
You are The Birds. The extraordinary beings that have shown us beauty in this world. The remarkable individuals that have given us a key to happiness in Life.
So, now it's time to fly... where to next?
2558Speakeasy Bar#http://www.gokunming.com/en/blog/item/1500/interview_sam_debell_of_speakeasy_bar# in Kunming closed its doors for the last time this past April.
The demise of the Speak and now the Bird may be harbingers of more closings to come in the future. We've spoken with a few successful restaurant and bar owners around Kunming and Yunnan and there is a growing concern among their ranks that there may be more prominent dining and drinking venues closing because of rapidly increasing rents.
The Bird Bar closing party on Thursday, October 7 will be an alien costume party. DJ Yan will provide the music and the party will run from 9pm to 4am. Entry will be free.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved. This material may not be republished, rewritten or redistributed without permission.
