    You could call it Wangfujing for hipsters. What started as a sleepy hutong with a handful of cafes, restaurants and bars has now turned into a top destination for young people in Beijing.

    A little brew pub in a nice courtyard setting. The beer doesn't compare well with your average micro-brew from the US, but its still interesting and the courtyard space is nice on summer nights.

    Doujiao Hutong Beijing Beijing 100009
  • Crescent Moon

    One of John's favorite Xinjiang places. Great Kao Bao Zi and Zhua Fan. Xinjiang food is something you have to try while you are in Beijing: kebabs, noodles, stew with naan bread are the classics.

    A good Beijing roast duck place with solid classic homestyle dishes. This location is a bit expensive (especially the beer), but in nice weather the outdoor tables right on the lake are worth it.

  • Drum and Bell Towers

    An impressive Beijing site - two ancient ceremonial towers; one with an enormous bell and one with an enormous drum.

    Beijing Beijing 100007
  • Mao Livehouse

    A good live music venue. It gets a little crowded during shows with well-known acts, but it's a decent place to see a gig. Some pretty good international and local indie acts come through.

    Gulou E St Beijing Beijing 100009
  • Yun Er Xiao Zhen

    A great Yunnan restaurant - one of many in Beijing and the Gulou area. Yunnan food is a must try while you are in Beijing. Try anything with mint, the lime and pulled chicken and the beef stew.

    N Luogu Alley Beijing Beijing 100009
  • Dali Courtyard

    A good Yunnan place in a beautiful courtyard setting. A favorite for visitors. The set menu means you don't have to worry about ordering. A little overpriced but not too bad at 120 RMB per person.

  • Zhang Mama Sichuan Restaurant

    One of the best Sichuan places in Beijing. Incredible Hui Guo Ruo, Chuan Bei Liang Fen, Kou Shui Ji, Mei Cai Kou Rou and more. Very long lines. Get a number and then go to El Nido nearby for beer.

    Fensiting Hutong Beijing Beijing 100009
  • El Nido Bar

    One of the biggest beer selections in Beijing at remarkably low prices. Simple picnic tables. One of our favorite places to drink in the city.

  • Qianmen

    A famous spot in Beijing with many hutongs filled with new and old shops selling everything from qi paos to old books to specialty foods and much more. A lot of good restaurants as well.

    Some of the best cocktails in Beijing in a great, small courtyard setting. Gets a bit crowded on weekends, but its worthwhile.

    N Luogu Alley Beijing Beijing 100009
  • Confucius Temple and Guozijian Museum

    A pristine, peaceful and not-too-crowded Beijing historical site on a beautiful tree-lined street. This site is definitely worth stopping by. Guozijian was the center of China's exam system.

    Probably the most famous temple in Beijing. Originally built in 1694, in the mid-18th century it became the home for many Tibetan and Mongolian monks and has remained so until now.
