A very interesting place to spend a couple of hours if you or your friends go to nanluoguxiang area. Prices are OK, they have some brands of Belgium and American beers; cocktails, some liquors and shots. Recommended! Protip: If drink don't drive!

Fantastic little bar, best I found in China. Great staff always up for a chat, always meeting new people there, decent music, reasonably priced drinks and all together brilliant. I highly recommend it! Get Angus to make you the cocktail he invented!

We were walking through a hutong section of Beijing and dropped in here looking for a place to sit and have coffee. It's obviously small but very delightful. They had any drinks we asked about and even made me a Cafe Mocha that was as good as Starbucks. Very comfortable chairs and good music and excellent service. You may have... More

As the name suggests the bar is 12sq meters - when we were there there was a beatles night which we all joined in on - and though the bar man has never made a margarita the one he made was perfect - great location n great atmosphere
