Sanlitun Bar Street, Beijing
(3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
A lively strip at the heart of the district, Sanlitun Bar Street particularly enjoys a reputation for nightlife. The malls here stock primarily Western styles and products, with an abundance of popular chain stores, as well as many fast food and restaurant franchises. The bars each have their own character and flavor--some more humble, local-feeling options lie tucked away on the side streets, while packed international meeting places crowd the main street. Use our Beijing trip builder to arrange your visit to Sanlitun Bar Street and other attractions in Beijing.

  • Site dedicated to the people instead of HouHai, Beijing young (and not so young) is an area mayoritamente frequented by foreigners of all parts of the world. Prices of drinks and food tends to be very economical, it is an area quite dirty and somewhat unsafe at night, avoid passing only / to Sanlitun to late in the evening. Despite the "insecurity" and dirt, is a very funny, full of clubs, pubs, bars of all kinds, and ultimately, the best place to spend the entire weekend. Be careful with the tuku tukus, trucks that take you from tip to tip of the neighborhood, often try to scam you. Also be careful with alcohol and tobacco, almost all times is false, contains high levels of chemicals and sometimes drug. However, if you are careful, you can be one of the best areas of Beijing. I say this from experience, I lived there 7 months and the best nights of my life are in Sanlitun.
