Interview: “The Frank”

Posted on | July 18, 2007 | 1 Comment

Some know him for opening one of Beijing’s first non-hotel bars – the creatively named Frank’s Place (1990). Some know him for his later establishment – John Bull Pub. And yet others know him as the Tuesday night quizmaster.

What fewer know is that during the past year, Frank Siegel has built a Beijing wine community via Friday night tastings at the Sanlitun branch of Sequoia Cafe. BB sat down with “The Frank” recently for his take on the tastings, the funnest events he’s been to over the past 20 years, what it takes to make it in the business, and whether it’s true that he’s a big fan of Algerian wines.

Go here for the full interview.
