When I first visited the Park soon after it opened, I realized that I hadn't set foot inside Green Lake Park in a few years. It's a beautiful place, but I simply did not enjoy All the noise and crowds that had come to define it after admission became free (down from a whopping 2 kuai, IIRC).
But James built a nice, quiet place in a beautiful old courtyard there, and I came to spend a lot of time there.
James and co built a really good menu, a very comfortable place and an unrivalled whisky list, the perfect recipe for a community hang-out, or even a quiet place to sip coffee and read in the sun during the day.
Thanks, James and everyone else at the Park, for making such a great place. We will all miss it, and look forward to seeing whatever it is you do next.
