Long Table

International in Dashilar & Xīchéng South

With its graffiti-covered walls and wooden benches, this is a backpacker hang out a (long-ish) stone’s throw from Tiān’ānmén Sq. During the day it functions as a cafe serving up Western standards: all-day breakfasts, burgers, pasta and pizza. At night, the sound system gets cranked up and it all gets more raucous as the cheap beers (¥10) are downed at pace.
