The Other Place

  • Nightlife
This cozy hutong hangout has recently been revamped and now provides a more glossy sanctuary, replete with dark wooden chairs and quaint dressing drawers, from Beiluoguxiang's more gaudy bar/cafe culture. Drinks are astonishingly cheap considering they seem to be made with real alcohol (can you imagine!); a deceptively strong gin and tonic will set you back 35RMB and beers remain a healthy 5RMB. Arrive mid-afternoon for a loll in the courtyard and an evening of relaxed boozing.
