Posted by Reading Time: < 1 minute

Maggie's Bar EntranceBEIJING, Dec. 8 – Maggie’s, the popular drinking spot for locals and expatriates in the nation’s capital, opened its doors again tonight for the first time in over six months.

Before being shuttered during Beijing’s drive to beautify itself ahead of the Olympic Games, Maggie’s was a stalwart of the the city’s club scene. Opened for nearly 15 years, the bar has long been a combination of both popular and notorious. A recent article in China Expat described the secret to the bar’s success – loud ’70s rock music and voluptuous girls from Mongolia.

With the Olympic Games now in reruns and the world’s attention elsewhere, the ex-PSB officers who own the bar decided it was time for it to reopen, much to the joy of its die-hard regular customers. It remains to be seen however, if the rise of Suzie Wong’s, a club that was not forced to close during the Olympics, will impact the popularity of Maggie’s.
