It looks promising, but soon you will notice why it's not! There is a live band that plays all kind of Western and Chinese music. The music is not bad but the sound is way to loud. When the band is playing you can't hear your friends. Cocktails are a little bit on the high end. But they make it... More

Had Thai at Lotus Blue. The seafood in pineapple is good.

We left the forbidden city through the back exit and decided to walk around a lake we saw on the map. Since it was lunch time and we were very hungry, we decided to stop at the first decent place we would find. This place is a mix of restaurant during the day and a bar in the evening and... More
