Tucked away south of Sanlitun Village, this quaint place offers various sports on numerous televisions as well as excellent food and beverages. A nice place to kick back and relax on the weekends.

I can't comment on the food as never eaten here but the drinks are of quality and the bar well stocked. Usually quieter than many Sanlitun bars, often stop by here for a pint and/or cocktail. Good place to catch western sports on the TV...More

Visited to enjoy Wing Wednesday. They were very accommodating to find a table for our party of six without a booking. Always enjoy the ambience and company of others at the local

Certainly an expat bar, but good beer, good food and a decent atmosphere with a selection of sports on tap to view.
