Fodor's Expert Review Amilal
Dongcheng District Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
If you have the patience to find this cozy courtyard bar in a tiny alley, you'll be rewarded with one of the city's hidden gems. Grab a seat at one of the rough wooden tables, listen to the low-key live music that's often playing, and enjoy the laid-back hutong vibe that's so unique to Beijing. For such a small bar, there's an unexpectedly good selection of whiskies on offer, too.
