Why Chill Bar is special ?
Chill Bar is located some minutes walk from the Andingmen subway station on the south side of the ring road. This converted siheyuan is a quaint and quiet place to stop for a brew after a hard day's work.
Inside the bar, there are two stylish rooms flank either ends of a covered courtyard, set aglow by a roaring log fire on weekends. On one side lies the bar, all cheese plates, leather sofas, minimalism and lounge music; on the other, a cosy room of floor-chairs.
Must try dishes:
Ginseng and blueberry-flavoured North Korean liqueurs (25-35RMB)
Belgian-beer parade of Kwaks, Grimbergens, Achels (40-50RMB)
Cocktails (all 45RMB)
Dozen ‘paninis’ ( 42-53RMB)

Tips for you
Friendly service, great atmosphere. not to be missed! We spent 3 evenings there, drinking Belgian beer, during September. The owners did a very good job renovating the place, the music is nice and not too loud, and prices are reasonable. We were told they will cover the yard and install a fire place during the winter!
Discovered this gem of a bar during an expat Halloween party last week. SO MUCH FUN! This place has comfy couches, a fireplace, indie music, an amazing selection of international beers (I put myself on the list for DPRK beer the next time they get a shipment--I suggest you do the same), delicious melty cheesy crusty paninis, and perhaps the best Belgian waffles to be found in Beijing (secret ingredient = gobs of butter). Such a breath of fresh air after all those Sanlitun bars.The guys who run the bar are super cute and friendly, and at one point in the night a girl even bellydanced on the bar. I almost want to keep this place a secret but we really need more places like this around Andingmen/Wudaoying. This would actually be a great place to have a relaxing lunch and get some work done in the afternoon. Hmmm maybe this is where I should have my birthday party in a few weeks! Oh, Chill is also super easy to find. It's basically the second set of red lanterns at the southwest corner of Andingmen qiao, and getting a cab from here is no problem.
