The area is a haven for premium shopping. Night is when the neighbourhood exhibits it's true colours, yet it is safe enough for kids to be walking around.

Before Taikooli (previously called Sanlitun Village) and Sanlitun Soho; this was the only place were foreign expats gathered to enjoy a drink at Friday night. Sanlitun Bar street was a nice place before 2008; now it has been turned into a strip of Bars where the locals offer you cheap Japanese XXX Movies or other "services" related. It's full of... More

Sanlitun is a stretch of clubs, bars and restaurants which would have been a very good place to chill out at night if not for the pestering touters that are all out to get you in patronising their bars. They will even follow you all the way even when you try all means to brush them off. Nevertheless, we managed... More

There are many bars catering to foreign tastes as this is near the embassy district. You can stroll and visit, but ignore 'recommendations'. The prefer the similar activities at the 'Rear Sea' (Hou Hai) district for better atmosphere.

Always when I'm in Beijing, I come here for a couple of beers. This place offer you different restaurants, bars and shopping malls. It's a good location for hanging out!

Avoid like the plague... The bars are expensive, crap and the beer is stale! Worth a stroll at night, but definitely not worth a drink.

This steret is a must for visitors here in Beijing. There are a lot of bar and restaurants but keep looking to go to the right place where to eat or drink (if you are not chinese do not try street food or drink, it may be dangerous for your health). Good places and less good ones. Take opportunity for... More

The bar street is really short. A block and a bit more. Be careful of getting ripped off. They tell you there are no minimum charge but they have a hidden service charge of around rmb 100 per table that is written on the bottom of the drinks menu. Unless you have a night to waste, it is not worth... More
