If you’re looking for a cute, one-room sized bar, then cellar door is the answer. Its the old man’s bar and more conveniently its, just down the road from El Nido near the Fangjia Hutong.
New owner Rain took over the place in June and set about turning the small investment into a shrine for rock idols. Postcards of music icons are collaged on the wall and are highlighted by the soft candlelight.
Their wide range of European beers (such as Hoegaarden 20RMB, Boddingtons 30RMB) and American (Brooklyn Lagger 25RMB) are some of the best prices in Beijing.
So head over here with a friend and make your selection from the bottles lined up behind the bar and grab your own cold brew from the fridge. Just don’t forget to pay cash. Cellar Door is cosy enough to be a mate’s living room, and the simple, homemade aesthetic means it’s easy to forget you’re in a bar.
