Best beer list

NileGuide Expert tip:
Try the absinthe
El Nido is not your average dive bar. With one of the most impressive beer lists in the city, you'll be sure to find a high-end brew you love, or even the cheap stuff you used to drink back home. El Nido prizes itself on it's ability to provide as many beers as are available in the capital.
In addition, the manager is an absinthe fan, and spends his days creating, blending and innovating with infusions and absinthe. It may be a dive bar, but it's cocktails and beers are certainly high brow.
Located down an old hutong alley, the dive fits the bill as something you could stroll right past and ignore. This would be a shame as it's appeal is clearly obvious once you've checked out the menu. With a dedicated following of locals, regulars and die-hards.
