"That kind of name requires an immediate explanation: the ku here does not mean cool. That'd be ku (酷). This place is ku (库), which means warehouse. It has the whole "warehouse party" vibe. In fact, the boss of Ku-18 helped organize some of the electronica warehouse parties in 798 last year. He's a bassist from Shenzhen who recently came to Beijing to open this 1,000sqm live music venue. The stage is decked out with smoke machines, cork-screwing lights, lasers, and the works. A dancing area opens up beneath it, lined on either side by rows of cocktail tables pushed against the walls. Behind the soundboard, the back of the hall hosts some sofas and the bar. Brick walls and reflective tile floor make for a big sound that can get muddy during louder sets." [1]
