Wild area, lots going on - restaurants, shopping, and of course eating and drinking. If you are looking for the action its in this area. My suggestion is to stay near here as everything in Beijing is easily accessed on the metro system.

This place is very popular with locals, expats, and tourists. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose. The actual bar street can get packed, but there are a lot of other great places on the neighboring roads. At night it can be difficult to catch a cab. Just stop a black taxi or a normal looking car with... More

There's nothing special about this place. But at least if you're not a fan of one bar you can move onto the one next door. Was expecting better.

It's 3rd world mayhem along the streets around SanLiTun area, and beware of the local ran bars. As per earlier reviews check pricing, as drinks menu's may be scarce and the price can vary and double by the time you add on "Extra's" such as seating, peanuts (just put on the table with no warning of price). Overall the grotty... More

A very popular place with Expats and locals alike. Some very hep shopping malls, to basic street food and excellent bars, all crammed in one location! About 10 minute walk from TuanJieHu Subway station. The best place to eat and drink - 1 floor bar. Very trendy, full of activity and great continental food to go with your drink. Mondays... More

Lots of bars everywhere along the road with so much excitement within them. If you are the type who likes to hang out in the bar at night, this is the perfect spot for you aside from Houhai. There are lots of foreigners coming to this place.

I like First Floor, I will refer to it as off the beaten path, since it’s not on a main Sanlutin bar street, you can find it easily on google maps – there are other bars here as well, First Floor is relaxed, lots of beer choices & food, you can meet locals here and other foreigners, the staff are...

As I creep up in years I enjoy different things. I can see, with the right group of people that the bar street could be great for kicks and giggles. But now that I enjoy a good meal, cup of artisan tea/coffe, cigar, game of table tennis, etc. more than a night of drunken debauchery with girls with low self-esteem... More
