Sanlitun Bar Street

Under the competition of Houhai Bar Street, Nanluogu Lane and other emerging bar street, today's Sanlitun Bar Street is far less popular than in the early 2000s, but it is still a lively nighttime leisure venue in Beijing.
The Bar Street is open every afternoon until early on the following morning.
