The sign on the gate that leads to Tang Hui on Huating Lu reads “停止营业” (ting zhi ying ye or “No longer open for business”). Yep, it’s true — the new Tang Hui failed to last a year. The bar and supposed music venue closed last week, Tang Hui general manager Morry Morgan confirmed via SMS:
Yes, unfortunately Tang Hui is closed. The music revolution is going to have to wait a bit longer. … The building is owned by a Malaysian investor who has a sizable mortgage. He’s going to have to realize he’s a stakeholder and sort out the neighbors. Otherwise the next business will fail. I believe Tang Hui was the third business in that building.
