You need no longer worry about where to go this Friday night. Good vibes, good company and good music are all you need and Basement has them all. Pair this with an ice cold beer or an expertly made cocktail in hand and you have the perfect way to start your weekend.
Basement is a bar that contains everything you need for an excellent night out. Arrive early and find a mood that encourages conversation while providing the perfect space to get your pre-party buzz on. The lighting is up, with some classic rock providing ample ambience while you catch up with old friends or even make some new ones. Sip on an ice cold cocktail or beer, complain about your boss or share your plans for the weekend as you enjoy the calm before the storm.
As the night progresses, the lights go down and the sound levels go up as Basement transforms from quiet watering hole to a beast born to party. Home to the Friday Session, power players of Hangzhou’s house music scene, DJs Tamlan, J1MMY H, and a rotating mix of others will get on the decks with some of their original beats to get you in the mood for the weekend.
If you look behind the bar, you may notice even more familiar smiles with a team responsible for one of Hangzhou’s most legendary bars, Maya. The menu includes all of the crowd favourite cocktails from Mojito (50RMB) to Long Island Iced Tea (50RMB), all mixed with generous pours, plus highballs (Gin&Tonic 40RMB) and shots (Kamikaze 20RMB).
If you start feeling hungry midway through the evening fear not, Basement has you covered. Bar snacks include Fries(30RMB), Chicken Strips(35RMB) and Popcorn Chicken(35RMB) - all great for sharing. If that’s not enough, Basement are collaborating with Gatto Matto to bring you some of the best pizza in Hangzhou from oven to bar stool in less than 20 minutes. All the classics are there including Salami, Ham & Mushroom and Cheese Lovers, all yours for 65RMB for 12-inches, the perfect size for two to share.
