Still, one of my favorite places to sit down and enjoy some beers with oldies. It's said that the entire old building was a hospital during World War II. I think the name "Huanglou" means "the building in the color of yellow". Back in 2009 when I was brought into this bar by my best friend in Hangzhou for the first time, I was so into the mood and the music here. Just a small band with senior folks who seemed really into the Jazz performing. There was seldom younger people, and the entire bar was quite quiet, cause almost everyone was "drunk" in the Jazz. That's why I tend to recommend this place for everyone I know planning to visit Hangzhou.But honestly, I won't use the word "disappointed" to describe the recent visit, since the both the place, the stage, and the seats are all same old same old, except for the people/guests, the music and the mood. There were so many young people, laughing and chatting pretty loudly. The whole place was so jammed, that it almost took 20 minutes for us to finally sneak two seats around the bartender. The band looks the same, but they've changed most of the songs into more "popular" ones, or more "ice-breaker" ones. They even sang YMCA with everybody standing up and dancing with hand moves.And the bartender got me the wrong beer.I will definitely go back to this bar next time, but I just miss the old "Huanglou".
