VERVO is set in an old building in downtown Kunming, split into slices like a tasty pizza. The ground floor has a beer bar known affectionately as the Oak Room, serving draft beer from around the world on tap with a gentle tilt towards BrewDog beers from the UK. We also offer lots of yummy snack food until the early hours of the morning for hungry revelers. Yunnan or Western, spicy or not, the choice is yours.
Hidden behind a secret bookshelf lies the cocktail lounge area, nowadays nicknamed the Juniper Lounge. This is a totally different experience... Sultry lighting, a plethora of greens, fairies and magic potions and enough spirits housed in the walls to warrant an exorcism. Classic cocktails with plenty of custom creations to keep things interesting – a great place for a relaxing drink or a romantic escape from the crowds.
The upstairs space is a whole different affair. Since 2013, VERVO has been synonymous with great parties. Techno, House, DnB, Disco, Garage, Hip-Hop, Grime, Afrobeat... the list goes on endlessly. From international headliners to supporting up and coming local DJ's and producers - the calendar stays full year round. So do check the GoK calendar and see what's on!

Just been once today 23 august 2014 but i can already tell it is the best place to enjoy a real dancefloor atmosphere with good music (not the commercial stuff that goes on in Kundu) with cool people. Eager to come back.
Vervo is a venue which I have enjoyed visiting since it opened. It makes a nice change from the other late night options in Kunming, mainly because it has qualities which I haven't yet noticed in other venues in the city. It has a decent sound system which can play music loud while maintaining sound quality. It isn't a sound system which is going to produce fuzzy or crackly sounds. The DJ's, the times I have been, have been pretty good as well. They have been able to mix properly and have created a lively atmosphere on the dance floor. The dance floor itself is cool, it's located behind the bar down a narrow corridor. It's spacious and this is where people head to dance and enjoy the music. There is no seating in the dance floor room, the seating is next to the bar and on the balcony. The seating area is a nice place to go and chill and have a chat. It's good that these two areas have been kept separate. Vervo wouldn't be out of place among the better clubs in a British city. I recommend people go and check it out as I think it really does make a positive and different contribution to Kunming's nightlife!
Went there on New Year's and the place was packed with pro DJs playing in room 1. Downstairs is a great place to chill out if want a more relaxed vibe. They have a few things left to smoothen out, but otherwise this is as close as you're going to get to a western club experience in Kunming!
I went last night. It was empty :/
Many thanks for comments and feedback.
