Potentially yes. Planning to go to UK soonish but nothing decided as of yet. 

Location cool for me.

For beers .... Go to Jing A / 京A. It’s near the Chun Xiu Lu. Kind of between Sanlitun and Dongzhimen.

 

They have decent food as well.

 

Otherwise in SLT itself there is Slowboat but the service has always been horrific when I’ve been. 

 

Apart from brewpubs (such as the above) in SLT proper you could check out The Local. 

 

Weeknights are tough for me because i live quite far out.

Thanks for the recommendation @ChTTay ... is this location on Google maps correct?

If so it's only a stone's throw from the GLB that closed down.  Wish I'd known!

Yeah that’s a better reference point. 

 

Just near the old GLB 

 

JingA also have really nice t-shirts and hoodies if you’re looking for gifts that aren’t tourist crap.

so many years  not linger around in Sanlitun. Anyone had experienced the curfew toward  Sanlitun in a cold winter?

 

Hope you guys would insist on this meet up , so I might have the chance to join in several years later.cheers!

Great — a bit like a Chinese-forums X HelloTalk mash-up meet-up :)

 

And my first ever time eating 北京烤鴨... thanks @Flickserve for bringing your friends along.

Sitting in 京A right now... it’s my new local!  I found an apartment 5 minutes walk away in Dongzhimen and will be moving in on Monday.

 

Hurrah!  Happy Dragon Boat Festival!

Never been in JingA . I should have taken the advantage of if when I lived in the center. I live way too far out now to go to sanlitun

Never say never, @DavyJonesLocker — just start drinking early enough to be able to get a Didi home 😉

JingA isn’t really Sanlitun. Just off Chun Xiu Lu, round the corner from that holiday inn. 

 

Let’s try for another meet up after summer perhaps? This one with hopefully 2+ attendees. Think the last one we managed 4!
