The first bar to open in Houhai is still around, even though its neighbors have already been torn down. It's very relaxed: many expats still list No Name as their favorite bar in the city. The service is refreshingly low-key—a nice change from the sycophantic staff at neighboring venues—and it's all tumbledown elegance with rattan and potted plants. Locals refer to it by the owner's name: Bai Feng. Anyone from tourists to old China hands can be found here.
