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.

When you order you must pay directly before the food comes. I order beef salad but got chicken. They didn’t change. I don’t go again to this bar

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

Sanlitun is the kind of street you can find in almost international districts of big cities in the world. It's not Chinese, it's not international, it's just fake. Counterfeit drinks everywhere, Western music and nothing exclusive to offer.

Sanlitun is a nice pedestrian area with an open mall feel, flanked by bars and restaurants. Westerners will probably feel a little more familiar here due to the crowd. Food and bars are average-to-high on pricing, as you'd expect in most major, international cities. I'm...More
