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.
