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

First Floor has a reputation as a pick-up joint, and perhaps it was in the past. As I understand it, it is located on "Old Bar Street" ("old" because it's not really a bar street anymore - that's the next street). It's not a pick-up...More

Please note, that a third of the Sanlitun Rd Bar strip is currently knocked down and is undergoing renovations. Opposite the the (somewhat seedy looking) bar strip are a selection of multi-storey malls which have stores like Adidas, Starbucks, a German sports bar, book store,...More
