Look agape at the extensive and showy exterior, and pass through the entrance
(if you dare). Inside, you'll find a small, cave-like club complete with what
look like (flashing) barnacled walls.
Seating is arranged around, and directed towards, the focal point of the
dance floor and DJ's altar, which leaves no spaces to hide. 021 Magenta is
suited for lounging, playing dice and small-scale socializing rather than epic
partying. Despite the over-abundant and polite staff, it remains a struggle to
order drinks, especially if your Chinese lessons have fallen by the wayside.
What's more, the prices for these coveted cocktails are fairly expensive. Best
to wait for Friday night when they host an open bar from 9pm to 1am, RMB 100 for
gents and RMB 40 for ladies. For those who think they are hot enough, there are
the egregiously sexiest 'lady' and 'best dancer' competitions on Saturday
Address: Daily 9pm-3am.
