Sanlitun Bar Street, Beijing

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.

  • Some roads in SanLiTun are home to numerous bars, Cafés and restaurants and thus Beijing's entertainment district. While two years ago were much more bars in old buildings in these streets, the Government in a "recovery plan" has torn down a number of these buildings and instead built new modern buildings, this time without bars. The whole area is a pedestrian zone, which is accordingly, animated by crowds of people especially in the evening.

Where to stay in Beijing

Beijing offers accommodations to suit the needs of every traveler, with clean, affordable hostels open to foreign backpackers, practical mid-range hotels for the business trip and group tour, and luxury four- and five-star hotels available at reasonable prices.
