NOTE: This post will be updated frequently in the run-up to Spring Festival.

If you aren't actively celebrating Spring Festival (aka Chinese New Year) then it can be a tricky time to be in the capital, what with so many popular venues closed for several days, if not a whole week.

To make sure you aren't left pouting in the cold in front of a closed door at your favorite bar or restaurant, below are details of opening and closing times throughout Spring Festival (Feb 15-21 unless indicated specifically). 

We'd suggest ringing ahead anyway if you're unsure if the venue will be open, as locations may be forced to change their opening times again closer to the date to deal with staffing issues.
