Migas’ Legendary Rooftop Terrace Opens this Friday, April 25!
It’s hard not to think about summer nights in Beijing without Migas coming into the picture at some point in the night.
Their legendary rooftop terrace is a hot spot for both awesome live music and world-class DJs known to turn the dance floor into a wild, hot mess. Knowing how much Beijing has been anxiously waiting for the re-opening of their rooftop, Migas is going big with DJ producer Hot Toddy (one of the founders of Crazy P).
Started in 1995 by Chris Todd and Jim Baron, Crazy P (formerly known as Crazy Penis according to Wikipedia) was born in the backstreets of Nottingham and now they play all over the world.

Known for their quality cocktails and excellent bartenders, Q Bar‘s winter specials are definitely up to par with the rest of their drink menu.
Out of their four winter drinks, I tried both their Hot Toddy and Coretto. Their Hot Toddy is quite possibly one of the best drinks I’ve ever had – a soothing and delicious mix of bourbon, honey, fresh lemon and hot water. While I prefer the Hot Toddy above all others, the Coretto was also a yummy mix of hot chocolate and Amaretto.
