Conveniently adjacent to Tuanjiehu metro station it is one of the prime areas of the city for shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Its origins stemmed from early Government decisions to move the diplomatic quarter from the centre, and here was the chosen district. Much development took place prior to the 2008 Olympics. It is now a busy animated attraction. We... More

Lots of really nice bars to chill out! Good internet access and cheaper drinks during happy hour. Highly recommended for a great night out! I can't believe this is Beijing. The Chinese have become very sophisticated so quickly!

I love the ambience. It's spacious to walk around with nice architectures of buildings. Lots of shopping stores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. The designs in between the buildings are relaxing to the mind.

This is sold as s whole street with bars etc. I anticipated lots with people spilling out on the street etc. It's fairly tame, a relatively short street with a few bar/restaurant/cabaret kind of venues. I wouldn't be rushing there and most are rather tacky.

This place lights up at night, with music and people looking for dinner, drinks and entertainment. Big name and high-end brand stores are located in the outdoor mall and the main Sanlitun street, so bring your wallet and have some fun. Tip: Don't bother with the "Lady Bars". Super expensive drinks and nudity is illegal. Ps. The mojito man sells... More

Always worth a visit. Whether for a coffee or for lunch or for dinner and drinks, there are plenty of options in Sanlitun. Upscale mall and hotel in one end, open air mall in the other and a quirky little bit in the middle. Great mix of people and definitely the place to be seen if your are a Chinese... More

As I already wrote, before arriving in China we had all the expected prejudices: Maoism, dull outfits, uniformity, conformity, grey colors, stern faces, police everywhere... We were so wrong ... China of today is so different, at least the main cities. And Sanlitun Bar Street is the best example of this reality we discovered there. Nothing there is whatsoever related... More

This scene has many options - the high end missing, a lot of average and rather much low level. Unfortunately, many bar just try to squeeze you cash, so ask the price before ordering. And those lower-level place with lap-dancing should be avoided anyway. An easy and friendly way to get quickly rid of continuous flow of "guys, are you... More

This bar street has many different kind of eateries spread around. You can find Vietnamese to Italian food with lots of bars along the street. Beware of the crooks hovering around just for rip off. You must select the clean restaurants since there are many out at heels as well.
