ATC Abandones the Cube and Opens a Bar

As many of you already know, Mike and I have taken over management of the famous 12SQM bar in Beijing. Once Beijing’s coziest (read: smallest) bar, it’s now a massive 44SQM and contains enough space for some pretty awesome events and parties.

Mike and Lauren have managed the bar for less than two weeks and already their combined happiness index has risen (ironically just as S&P are downgrading every country on the planet).

Lauren has been hard at work creating the 12SQM Website: Check it out, let us know what you think.

Meanwhile, Mike has been busy actually running the bar. He’s taking inventory, stocking daily, managing customers and running the bar. He’s been a 12SQM superstar! And to top it all of today he was interviewed by Beijing’s largest expat magazine. Snazzy.

You’ll find more photos on the website, and we’ve also launched a Facebook Fan Page so you can share your thoughts about the bar and, as always, keep up on the gossip.

We’re extremely excited to be hosting the Beijing Book Smugglers book club at the bar, as well as the last SinoScuba dive meeting. We’re all for adventure, and 12SQM is a travel-themed bar full of treasures the former owners and ourselves have gathered over years of traveling around the globe (well, portions of it anyway). Most of our clientele are travelers themselves, and they pop in for a drink and then walk out at 3am recommending the pub to their friends. We’re proud of this traveler pedigree.

See you all soon!

    P.S. If I go to Beijing, I will definitely come see the bar.
