Beijing 2009 - Shichahai Bar Street

The entertainment areas in Beijing are conveniently grouped into districts, and one of the popular nightspots is this bar street at Shichaihai. Located next to the Shichahai Lake which is at the North-Western side of the Forbidden City, this place has a great range of bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants which open late into the night. Many of the bars also feature live bands - some are very good. I even saw a pub featuring belly dancers imported all the way from the Middle East !

Bars with live bands. 

Beijingers are quite an active bunch, and it is very common to see lots of people playing sports, games and dancing on the streets or anywhere they can find a big open space. This is truly one of the great sights of Beijing.
