Sakura Cafe: "Great food, music and atmosphere" Beijing Nightlife Tip by Willettsworld

Beijing Nightlife: 217 reviews and 250 photos

I came here quite a few times and enjoyed the food very much. It's located in the Xuanwu district of Beijing, not far from Tiananmen Square, on a street that has other restaurants, hotels, hostels and shops, so the area attracts a lot of western tourists. This place, is therefore, very popular as it has a very western ambience with western decor and music. On several occasions, I spotted passing locals stopping outside to see and hear what was going on inside. The food menu is very good with a lot of western, Chinese and other Asian dishes plus a wide variety of drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. I particularly came here in the morning to have their excellent cooked breakfast (see photo) and enjoy the atmosphere in the evenings. There's a good place to stay in the same building (at the back) called 365inn where I stayed for a few nights (see my accommodation tips).

Directions: 55 DashiLar Xijie Street, Beijing
