At the same time, the outside world is full of curiosity about this store, which cannot be distinguished from the name of a supermarket or a bar. Paradise Supermarket has a high reputation in the Beijing bar circle. On some social media, Paradise Supermarket has been labeled as “Beijing Super Internet Red Bar”, “Best Bar for Beginners”, “Beijing’s Hottest Drinking Gathering Place” and “Beer Supermarket Paradise on Earth”.

Because of the word “supermarket” in the name, unfamiliar people can easily mistake this place for an ordinary supermarket.

In fact, Paradise Supermarket Bar was indeed a convenience store in the beginning, mainly selling foreign wine, called “Paradise Convenience Store”, and then changed its name to “Paradise Supermarket” and gradually developed into a bar, while retaining the business model of a supermarket. .

A Fei (pseudonym), who often frequents the bar street of Gongti West Road, told reporters that the location on the right side of the entrance of the Paradise Supermarket Bar against the wall is the “supermarket area”, with a row of wine cabinets with various wines in it; At the counter, the boss checks out here, ice buckets, drinks, dice, and snacks are also taken here, and other places are filled with large and small tables, with tables for four and six.

In the eyes of some people, Paradise Supermarket Bar is relatively “down-to-earth” in the bar street. Zhao Xi (pseudonym), who goes to work every month for drinks, said, “A bottle of ordinary beer here is 25 yuan, and a pair of dice is 10 yuan. Compared with the price of 30 yuan a bottle of Sprite in other nightclubs, it is indeed a lot cheaper. .”

So, how did this bar become the focus of this round of epidemic in Beijing? Amy (pseudonym), a close contact, said in an interview that at around 10 p.m. on June 6, he accompanied his friends to Sanlitun to talk about things, and a group of three went to the Paradise Supermarket Bar that night. Amy recalled that the service staff of the Paradise Supermarket bar would ask people entering the bar to scan the health code, but they didn’t look carefully, just a symbolic glance. Amy also said that on the evening of the 6th, almost no one in the bar in Paradise Supermarket wore masks except for the staff.

“After I went in, I found that almost no one was wearing a mask except the staff, and some people were hanging around the table to play, so I didn’t dare to take off the mask.” In Amy’s impression, the interior space of the Paradise Supermarket bar is very spacious. It’s big, the tables are densely arranged, and they sit closer to the bar. “The bar is very crowded, almost full.”

That day, Amy and the other three stayed at the Paradise Supermarket bar for about an hour. On June 9, Amy received a call and learned that she had become a close contact, and then entered centralized isolation. At present, Amy’s nucleic acid test results are all normal.
