Sanlitun is a good area to kick back and relax whilst visiting Beijing and there are some pretty decent bars in the area. This is also the area you can watch a Chinese football game at the Workers Stadium or catch a DJ in the...More
I visited the area during the evening. It is a disappointing if you're not interested in shopping (all luxuries brands have stores here). During the evening they're very few restaurants that are open, and the main street hosts several sleazy bars which remind red light...More
Walking in from line 10 - Tuanjiehu subway station will give you a feeling that you are probably walking the wrong way as you will pass by a Norwegian Embassy and then walk within the compound of an Army Hospital. Lots of roadworks enroute. High-end...More
SanLiTun Bar Street has changed since I first visited in pre-Olympics in 2007, the strip of seedy bars and hawkers is now more refined.
As this street is being ‘refined’ you will still have the old hawker and see the pile dancing but you can...More
This is an attractive area for entertainment, particularly if you are young in your 20s, open-minded and you have enough money in your pocket. American and european style bars with live music and restaurants and coffee shops where the customers average age is in the...More
Has lots of options from seedy to family friendly all types of music some of it live but it all lacked character or a sense of being felt like any other metro downtown area was a let down as an attraction overall
We found this street as we were looking for a nice bar to enjoy saturday night. It is lined with shopping, bars, and restaurants. The bars are open till wee hours of the night. Some are crowded with live music and popular with the local...More
Three of us jumped a cab down to Sanlitun Bar STreet on Wednesday night at around 8 and it was pretty quiet.
Popped into a couple of bars and had one in each. Ended up in Adams Bar, staff were fantastic, drinks were really great...More
a large variety of restaurants and bars (some with pole dancers, but mostly with life music). nice area and good for a walk. downside: it could be anywhere in the world in any big city, and therefore lacks a bit soul.

Hi Robert. Unfortunately, TripAdvisor does not allow anyone to supply personal email, phone numbers, etc on their website when answering questions. I have added my email several times to answer a question and it was rejected by the system. Other than that, I would be glad to help, but you probably you have to list your questions in detail.
However, the bars on the main street called "Bar Street" are a bit over rated. Several have good music. at least on the weekends. But there are some ladies of the night selling their charm in this area, but most annoying are the men and women on the street trying to convince you to go to their bar just a 5 min walk away. They will offer free drink, plenty of entertainment, etc. Don't accept any of their offers. They are all rip offs and you will get trapped into an expensive evening buying drinks for the ladies who ae more than willing to join you for conversation. Their job is to sell expensive drinks, fast!! The bars on Bar Street are not that way, and are worth a visit.

2)BEIJING is well known for the roast duck. DO visit "GOLDEN MILLION" (Chinese :ZIN BAI WAN") restaurant for their roasted duck and not the infamous restaurant (???!!!) where everyone goes. Check with your hotel, as ZIN BAI WAN is not too well known by most travellers ,even the Locals. They have several outlets in BEIJING.

4 Day Itinerary - Advice? (10 Replies)
Hey guys and gals! So a friend and I are travelling to China in July for a touch under two weeks (as something of a bachelor party trip for myself). Our first stop is in Beijing, where we'll be from Monday July 3rd to Friday July 7th - flying down to Xi'an around lunch time on the 7th. I used to live in China, but for my friend it's his first time. We've worked out a bit of an itinerary for Beijing so far, but I'm just looking for some thoughts and feedback should anyone have any. I...More

You can do more each day. Depends on your stamina. Have a list of options and decide on that day o you are not too tired if you want to do more. Olympic park is a bit of a waste of time. Do not go to the Silk market after the Temple of Heaven. instead go to the Pearl market just across the street of the east gate of the Temple. Same merchandise and sales girls are less annoying. Consider adding the "must-see"places: Jingshan, drum tower and Houhai area on day 1 Lama Temple on day 2 ...More
