    Still the most charming local brewery I’ve found in Beijing. Planted discreetly in the middle of the hutong lanes, about 200m west of Nanluguoxiang walking street. Yes it’s a trick to find, but if you stumble on it, wow. So worth it. Quiet and dusty charm with all their great local beers. Sit and recharge yourself watching alley cats sunning themselves on the old hutong house tiles. Definitely worth finding if you can.

    This area is popular among the locals and tourists, especially along the Yandai Xie Street 烟袋斜街 and the surrounding hutongs. As such, there are many shops in this touristy street - food, snacks, handicrafts, souvenirs etc. Many people loved to congregate at the Yinding Bridge 银锭桥. You can take a rickshaw ride in the hutong area or a boat ride in Houhai Lake 后海. Suggest you visit the Bell and Drum Towers if you are here.

    This place is simply amazing! Disco Retro Style, the DJ playing music there is unbelievable, she plays classic disco dance songs, and drinking the best handmade cocktails in Beijing. The bar is really beautiful and the people are really friendly. Don’t miss this INCREDIBLE place !

    Stumbled (quite literally) across this bar during a night of revelry, wandering the hutongs. The drinks were delicious, and the bartender was super friendly. We closed it down that night! And returned (pre covid) to Beijing a year later and this was our only must-repeat establishment. I can't recall the name of my favorite beverage, but it's the one with a passion fruit filled with rosemary that they light on fire. Also somewhere within a few blocks was a super cool speak easy in a coffee shop.

    Tour was super fun and our guide Bonnie was amazing. We tried 4 different kind of local delicacies, while drank beer when riding on Tuktuk. Really one of the best tour I've ever had.

    We came there well before the first set started, not knowing we were going to see A Bu, the exceptional young Jazz pianist. The place got crammed full with a great atmosphere. The drinks are expensive, but there is no entrance fee.

    Basically an upmarket food court/food incubator and an indicator how things are likely to develop in this buzzing city. Very nicely designed, well maintained and with a very wide selection of choices. Thumbs up for the meat (Carne) and vegetarian stores (Nooxo) on the second floor. Thumbs down for the Thai one on the first floor. Bar upstairs is quite pleasant, but overpriced.

    So far this is my favourite live music venue in Beijing. We went for a metal cover night and the Chinese bands absolutely smashed Iron Maiden, Nirvana, Rammstein and many more, with some crazy mosh pits and headbanging. It was definitely on par with if not better than being in the London metal scene. I highly recommend going here for any of their rock/metal/punk nights; there's cheap beer and plenty of cool and friendly music lovers to hang out with. If you're in Beijing for a while you must also check out School Live bar, Temple bar, Yugong Yishan etc.

    Just the best concept bar in China. One location with Waku Waku Wagyu Beef BBQ. I would say even better than in Tokyo

    Absolutely Amazing ! Wish we had one in the U.S! Easily the best club in China and friendly people to party with! But don’t wear Red.

    This is currently listed as #7 of 79 things to do in Beijing nightlife. A city with a population of 30m and there are 79 things to do at night. This tells you everything you need to know about Beijing’s nightlife but this bar is great. We went on a Friday night and were the only people there. Bartender was friendly and mixed a mean cocktail.

    Enjoyed as both an artist and audience member. Good stage, sound, sight lines; friendly. Interesting range of world music artists. In one of the older neighbourhoods of Beijing.

    The drinks were very good here, what you would expect for a high end cocktail bar. We went right before dinner and wanted to get a snack. They were out of the food we asked to order.
