New Place, new face

So, we have closed down our club due to some unexpected third party forces, and now have re-opened it as a cafe/restaurant in the central Ulaanbaatar.

Our name is d.d / h.z, which is a bit difficult to pronounce :D

d.d means daidai 橙 (orange) in Japanese, which was a bar inside Hanzo club, and also means Didi 弟 (younger brother) in Chinese, and h.z obviously means Hanzo.

We serve fusion Japanese food (so, all of our food is basically not Japanese, rather international), such as coconut spicy chicken bowl (which obviously has Thai origin), meat doria (which has Italian origin), dry curry (Indian origin), and Kaomangai (Thai origin) all served in bowls (Japanese).

We use Japanese rice and Local Mongolian vegetables and chicken.

Here is our new location and the atmosphere for your interest.

Hanzo Club is closed

It is regretful to inform that Hanzo club has closed as of 21st February, 2015.
It was due to landlord issues, and we are currently looking for other location to re-open,

We will let you know once we re-open our place.

General Update Information - 2012-2015

After not updating the blogspot for pretty long (over 2.5 years, lol), I am updating with the recent updates.

Given that the Mongolians get the information from facebook group of Hanzo, the blog is primarily dedicated to foreigners mainly.  Below are the main things happened for the past 2.5 years

-  Hanzo had been continuously operating since its opening in 2012, and in April 2015, it is having its 3rd anniversary

- Albeit its difficult to find (hidden in the rear alleys) location, it has become one of the favorite venues for local LGBT community, alternative crowds (people who like underground-ish music etc), live bands, local expats etc.

- Hanzo had been actively involved in social activities and promotions for human and animal rights, including, but not limited to, LGBT Pride Week Fund Raising Party, Women's Rights Fund Raising Party ("Gunj" Center NGO), Disabled Citizens' Party ("Tergentsertei Irged" NGO), Fund Raising event for Stray Dogs ("Lucky Paw" NGO) etc.

- It was selected as the "top 50 places to visit in UB" in local magazines, as one of the two bars within it.  Also, it was introduced on Lonely Planet and Utopia Asia.

We are looking forward to further PARTIES to go on.
