Top choice bar in Shangri-la

Relocated since the 2014 fire, the Raven remains the best bar in town (and in northwest Yúnnán), with a huge range of beers and spirits. There's a big bar counter to sit around, sofas to sink into, New York–style pizzas (from ¥45), a pool table and decent sounds. It's a 10-minute walk from the old town, perched over a mini lake. Look for the raven sign.
