Yuyintang closing for renovations
Having finally got their licenses and permits sorted out (well, until the government decides to change the rules), Yuyintang has decided to shutter its doors for most of January and undergo some extensive renovations, reopening again after Chinese New Year in February or possibly as late as March (it's currently unconfirmed). YYT has been going around six years now, about three of them in the current location and the management have decided it's time to give the Kaixuan Lu space a bit of an overhaul.
It'll be more than just a lick of paint too. The idea is to knock a couple of walls down and expand the bar space among other things, hence the closure being several weeks long. This isn't the first time the Kaixuan Lu livehouse has undergone such changes of course, when it first started out the current entrance area didn't exist and the "bar" was an old guy with a Coke fridge sat in one corner selling all drinks for 5 kuai.
Attendances have risen significantly since then and now they have the right paperwork in place, they've decided to remodel a little. They'll close on January 10th.
