At the stroke of midnight on 7 January 2019, Jack Ma's pub, HHB (Pingtouge 平头哥), officially started the business in Hangzhou. Celebrities such as Wang Han, Kevin Tsai, Gao Xiaosong, Barbie Hsu attended the opening ceremony.
The pub's logo "平头哥" -- same as Ma's new AI chip company established last September -- which translates as the honey badger, an animal with which Ma identifies owing to its perseverance in adverse conditions. HH stands for happiness and health. Ma sang Hiroshima Mon Amour at the pub and said the goal is not to make money as much as creating a space around themes including wine, music, wine, and friendship.
Since then, it has been the latest hot spot, it's hard to get in without queueing.
HHB offers decent drinks, its signature cocktails are worth trying. Live band is playing every month, and they have special guest band every now and then.
