Go to the parallel street next to it where you're not going to be ripped off so badly! The main street is filled with touts harassing you to go in for over-priced drinks.

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
