Sometimes you just want a glass of wine or a gin & tonic. And, sometimes those are hard to find in China (many hotel bars will serve glasses of bear but only full bottles of wine). The Belgian Bar is near the South Gate in Xi'an and satisfied our craving for a Tanqueray and Tonic. We also enjoyed two different live bands. Excellent musicians and singers. Prices are for westerners, but at least they are not New York prices. We went twice and there was a small friendly crowd each time (other bars we looked at were almost vacant).

not our kind of place in China - would prefer a more local style pub, and there are several in this lively area by the old city wall - but were all either so loud we couldn't hear each other, or full. So - Belgian then. Offer a selection of mostly imported beers, very expensive though. Live music was local, atmosphere relaxed, the waiters wanted to be extra kind and put fans directed towards our table, so after the beer needed to escape, to avoid major pneumonia ;)

Without doubt the worst place we visited in whole China. Very bad and expensive food. Being 5 people we had to wait 2 hours between the first and last was served. The food was so bad that we even didn't finished it. We were ashamed to be Belgian.

Enjoyable evening with a good choice of quality Belgian beers. Friendly and helpful staff. Live music playing inside. Sitting outside in the warm evening breeze.

This bar was lively, friendly and cosy. The bar staff were very good and knew their beers while the musicians were friendly.
We really liked the atmosphere here.

The place has a modern, western look, the beer is very exclusive and the food perfect.
The most interesting thing about this pub are the artists (singers) performing every night.

Don't go there! Tricky for tourists!!
We went to the belgian bar in our visit in Xi'an, and we order hooka..
We are always smoking hooka in our country, so we know the prices, even if it's not common in China.
In the end, we asked for the bill..and we were shocked at what we saw: 158 yuan only for the hooka!!
t is important to note that in the nearby bars the price is much lower, and also the prices for the drinks are very high!
When we asked the waitress to show us in the menu where is the price of the hooka, she told us that they didn't put it in the menu..
I demanded to talk with the manager, but she told me that she is the manager, but when we asked for a discount, she told me that she will ask the manager...
This event ruined our entire evening, we did not expect to be charged a lot. We want to warn all of you not to go there, it's a waste of your money!

Belgin beer is great, but much on the menu was not available. We arrived fairly early by Xi'An standards - 6ish - after a day walking. The music is not good, the live music (I'm English and live in London) is at best listenable though I appreciate it's not geared for me or my taste. It's too loud to talk and not that great, though. They also have western TV playing on screens, nothign to do with te music wihch is irritating in any bar.

That all said, it's got friendly staff and what is available is good. We went here 3 times and if they just kept the music low enough to talk without shouting (and turn down the treble please!) it would be great. Decent food.

Cheeseburger and onion rings, great!! Fries, ehh probably the worst I've ever had. Beers are average priced with a nice happy hour. (They brought the third out with the two we ordered and we asked if they could put in a fridge to keep cold but they said, "no") hmm. Nice atmosphere outside. An overall, OK place. Right outside of the wall so a great location. Maybe need to have more English speaking staff? We spoke to our waiters with translate...but hey, we're in China!
