NileGuide Expert Says:
Ideal place to start a Sanlitun night
Zhongyu Plaza, corner of Gongti Beilu and Sanlitun Nanlu,
San Li Tun
NileGuide Expert tip:
Sit in the garden area
This kitschy beer garden and bar is located on the seventh floor of the Swire building, making it a bit hard to find (or easy to forget) for many Beijing drinkers. Still, for a fun way to start a Beijing night in Sanlitun, Miss Saigon doesn't disappoint.
The cocktails are okay, but for real connoisseurs you might consider the beer a more tasty option. Simply mixed, the cocktails don't offer more than the basic adherence to classic recipes.
There is a small selection of bar food available, but again this isn't for those who consider themselves expert foodies. If you're hungry and not picky, the food is filling and delighful when mixed with the cocktails and corny view.
