There are four beers on tap (from ¥25 for Carlsberg to ¥55 for Guinness) and more than 100 bottled beers from around the world (¥20-¥70). There’s also a good range of spirits (average: ¥40) and cocktails (average: ¥45). A standard range of pub meals are also available for an average of ¥50 for a main.

The Den
The Den, Beijing The Den is a long-time expat hangout which is quite a nice bar during the early evening, serving quality bar food at reasonable prices.
Steaks are a bargain at ¥50-60 while the other Chinese and Western food is equally tasty and mainly costs around ¥40. Snacks including chicken wings, lamb skewers and spring rolls fall in the ¥20-30 range. Beers, including Carlsberg draught are priced between ¥20 and ¥30 with half-price happy hour lasting from 5pm-10pm. But the end of happy hour marks a good time to leave. Stay later and you will likely be plagued by some of the most hideous whores to grace the bars of Beijing. The Den is also a decent place to watch sports with three large plasma screen televisions.

Solidaz
Solidaz Bar, Beijing Formerly known as the Pavillion, Solidaz is a classy bar and restaurant that draws big crowds for sporting events.
The Pavilion is more expensive than other bars in town with draught Carlsberg at ¥35, although Tsing Tao on tap provides a cheaper option. The food is okay, especially the pizzas (around ¥70), although their lasagna (¥40) but they’re definitely not the best value meals around. But for the extra money you are able to drink in a tasteful, chic atmosphere, replete with leather couches and solid tables. But the best feature of Solidaz is a massive, tranquil beer garden which is converted into a bleachers area during major sporting events. Inside there are multiple plasma TVs for viewing sports. Live music from New Zealand band Solidaz every night.
Address: Gongti Xi Lu Subway: Dongsishitiao Ph. (010) 6507 2617
Directions: Solidaz Bar is directly opposite the west gate of the Workers Stadium.
