Beijing Guide (Part II: Nightlife -Hou Hai Café and Bar Street)
2/25/2009 11:51:22 PM


The Houhai Café and Bar Street , located in the Xicheng District of Beijing, is a mixture of ancient Beijing and modern Western culture. It is full of trendy bars and unique pubs. When night falls and the moon shines on Houhai Lake , the street comes alive lit up by a multitude of lamps amidst the hustle and bustle of the patrons and hawkers.
   Night life is rather colorful on this street. Most of the cafés and pubs are privately owned and have their own features and services. People of all ages can hold parties, chat, sing and dance here, sampling the varied drinks menus.
   Foreigners like to come here, too as they can enjoy a mixture of traditional Chinese and modern Western ambiances. Residents and travelers may take a stroll after supper along the shores of the lake and enjoy Beijing's night scene.
