Bar in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Like the Alamo for homeless hutong venues, this courtyard contains craft-beer bar El Nido, cocktail den Fang Bar, and Komex taco joint LA Palms – three grizzled victims of the 'Great Brickening' circa 2017 when dozens of hutong businesses had their windows and doors blocked up. No wonder it feels a little wild here, partying like each night might be their last!
