From our meeting point, we will take you on a 10-minute stroll through the old town with its narrow alleys andhutongs(or traditional houses). In a city full of impressive skyscrapers and big industry, it is refreshing to get lost amongst these narrow alleyways–a link to the city’s fascinating past. Our first stop is a bar specializing in rice wine nestled in the old hutongs, featuring quiet surroundings with an elegant touch of Chinese history and art. With its charming vintage wooden beams dating back to the 1970s and a truly local vibe, it's a fantastic venue to taste different rice wines while admiring art and savoring some local history. Our next two stops shift the focus to beer. Although they are very close together, these places are worlds apart in terms of design and what they offer. First upis a charming hole in the wall (one of the smallest breweries in town) that just so happens to be producing some of the best craft beer in China. Next up is a chic affair, very modern-industrial, with concrete floors, massive fermentation tanks, and a delightful rooftop terrace.The pub boasts a constantly changing and expanding selection of custom-made brews, offering a wide range of flavours. Our final stop will be forsome localBBQ.Chuan’ris the most popular street snack amongst Beijingers; it’s a marinated skewer of meat, traditionally lamb but can now be anything (including veggie). This delicious snack is typically spiced with a combination of cumin, sesame, and pepper flakes and then cooked on make-shift grills - in our opinion, the perfect way to cap off an evening of bar-hopping in Beijing! Once the tour is over you are welcome to stay for another drink (or two!)and havea chat with your fellow tour-goers to find out their top tips for visiting Beijing. Or ask your in-the-know local guide for more advice on how to get the best out of this remarkable city.
