Drawing in a hipper club crowd hungry for fun, this venue features two rooms throwing two completely different styles of music, hip hop and electronic. This pub in the Lotus Market in old Beijing is a popular hangout for the young and promiscuous. Dance, disco, pop and techno is the main diet here. This bar frequently hosts theme nights, so you should call beforehand to check what's going on. This place also has a lovely refreshing roof terrace. Recently renovated, it now covers several floors and is home to a decent buffet, loads of new cocktails, VIP service and of course one of the city's best dance floors. You'll find a mix of folks at all hours of the day here but beware of sleazy dudes late at night. Not long ago, Beijing night life mostly meant private dinner parties for the powerful, alcohol-soaked karaoke bars or visits to “lady massage” parlors. Universities are still known to lock the dormitory doors around midnight. Now, the night scene has undergone a metamorphosis. With the loosening of the Communist hold over the economy and under the influence of the expats, the number of rich and pompous people has seen rising through the roof. All major cities including Beijing and Shanghai have such crowds. They want to groove and relax and party at night after a hard days' work. They have enough cash to squander in bars, cafes and girls. Find a night and party to suit your musical tastes. The picturesque surroundingg landscape adds to the vibe of this trendy bar. Ideal for sundowners and those on romantic dates looking for a nice place to huddle with their loved one. This place is located in central Beijing just near the Forbidden City, in the Lotus Market and offers one of the most convenient places to launch a pub crawl including nearby Gulou and Nanluoguxiang in the lovely Beijing hutongs. You can explore the delightful hutongs that Beijing is famous for along your pub crawl and still experience some of the city's more impressive bars and pubs.
