In the daylight, Qianmen is an area that keeps the most traditional essence in Beijing; as the night falls, it turns into a place for secret fun. You don’t see people partying in Qianmen’s bars like those in Sanlitun, but more often you’ll see groups of friends enjoying each other’s company.

If you have a high expectations for the perfect drink, No.2 Yanjia won’t let you down. It’s a pub where you can enjoy the tranquil hutong ambience, the top-quality cocktails and thoughtful service at the same time. They don’t have a regular drink list, so you can ask the bartenders to fix you a special cocktail according to your preferences.

The Heping Pub is a combination of tradition and modernity: On the one hand, it is a conventional Beijing pub that features meat and vegetable skewers as snacks; on the other, the beers it provides are all home-brewed, unlike the skewer bars which usually sell ready-made beers from the big Chinese brands like Yanjing and Qingdao. Nice place for a group of friends to shoot the breeze.

The bar is not big, but you can tell how intense the owner’s love for the bar is from the roomful of accessories. The bar’s owner is a talkative Beijing local with a strong sense of humor, so you would have a much better experience drinking here if you can understand some Mandarin. If you are lucky, you may even get to try the beer brewed by the owner himself.
