Yúgōng Yíshān

Live Music in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Reputedly one of the most haunted places in Běijīng, this historic building has been home to Qing dynasty royalty, warlords and the occupying Japanese army in the 1930s. You could probably hear the ghosts screaming if it wasn’t for the array of local and foreign bands, solo artists and DJs who take to the stage here every week.

With a very sound booking policy and a decent space to play with, this is one of the best places in town to listen to live music.
