Mao Mao Chong Bar

Bar in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Though MMC has changed hands over the years, this petite but lively hútòng favourite remains popular for its well-mixed cocktails, atmospheric alleyway setting and cosy, under-lit interior. Soak up the spirits with a limited menu of pizzas, chicken wings and other snacks. There's no toilet anymore, so you'll have to be brave and join the locals, hútòng style.
