Swedish wine bar opens in China

Rolf Olofsson was one of the founders of the Barrique Wine Bar in Gothenburg in Sweden some years back. He has left his homeland (and Gothenburg) a couple of years ago to settle in China. His new creation, Barrique Wine Bar (in China) opened in Guangzhou on July 16, two days after the building works finished…

Guangzhou is today a (partially) modern city that, according to some estimates, has some 18 million inhabitants. And according to other reports it has very few good restaurants. So the Barrique team has good hope for the future. We wish them the best of luck in their venture.

    Is the wine bar successful and still open in 2011?
    Wish him success

      Probably. We haven’t heard anything else. But we really don’t know. Would indeed be interesting to know how it went.
