Spring Festival 2020 Business Opening and Closing Times

By in News on

As we are welcoming the year of the rat, many cafés, restaurants, bars, grocery stores and shops around Kunming will close or change their hours of operation. To help keep up, we've contacted local businesses and compiled their holiday schedules before, during and sometimes after the official Spring Festival schedule. Some have already taken time off!

Apologies about the late posting, but we were too busy organizing and celebrating the Best of Kunming Awards 2019-2020 to do it earlier.

Any businesses not listed below should feel free to post their schedules in the comment section at the bottom of the article. Those listed who may further alter hours can get in touch via the GoKunming contact form. Here at the website, we too will take a bit of a hiatus, and start publishing again after the holiday. The GoKunming team would like to wish all of our users a happy and healthy Year of the Rat!

(apologies about the poor translation)

what a shit show, eh? big thanks to gokunming and all of you for making this site a reliable place to get reasonable information. you've done a great job.

for now, both salvador's coffee house and mosaic bistro are still open. we have also put our meituan shop back up online for those of you at home wondering if you should go outside or not.

The re-opening of the meituan site is very helpful, thanks.

Thanks Colin!

Turtle Bar is also closed

Vervo is closed

Uncle John's is closed

salvador's has limited opening hours from 9 am till 9 pm

and we made a trip to shuncheng today and most every place including restaurants was open. it seems that most malls are still open

Sals will be closed tomorrow for an uncertain amount of time. We will try to keep Meituan going, but there are no guarantees as the level of fear has become its own beast.

@mihani, staying open has not been about revenue. we will lose nearly the same amount of money each day whether we stay open or closed. our staff have made the decision each morning on their own about whether or not we should remain open to keep providing food to our customers. it was in fact our goal to lead by example by staying open and offering people a safe and comfortable atmosphere in the midst of everything going on.

Comments have been cleaned up of unsubstantiated news and personal attacks. Let's keep it practical and stick with opening and closing times, thank you.


The Chinese restaurant is open but Kwee Zeen (the buffet) and the rooftop bar are closed.

Cantina will open tomorrow!

Yunnan provincial library closed till further notice.

Rooster is opening on February 1

Chef's Choice will open on Monday, February 10

Salvador's Meituan will be open starting tomorrow. You can also order for takeaway and both Salvador's Coffee House and Salvador's Mosaic Bistro. We will be open from 10 am to 8 pm, though tomorrow might be a slow start as we have loads to prepare. Hopefully there will be a time in the near future where we can open the doors to everyone again. Take care out there.

Rooster and Slice of Heaven are open for take-away

FYI, Meituan is a bit difficult to work with these days and sometimes they don't accept tickets. So at Salvador's this week we are offering 15% off for any orders that you pick up yourself.

For those who don't already know, as of yesterday restaurants in Kunming are opening up. Salvador's Coffee House and Mosaic Bistro are both currently open from 10 am to 9 pm. As staff return to Kunming, we might soon be able to get back to full operating hours. There are some rules that we must currently follow including...

1. must scan in QR code
2. must scan temperature
3. must wear mask when not eating or drinking
4. must limit seating at tables and tables must be at least 1 meter apart

Hopefully the slow recovery towards normalcy will be seen again next month in the rest of the world.
