Beijing's best outdoor bars

Great Leap Brewing

Last year's surprise hutong hit, Great Leap Brewing, burst out from nowhere with its fabulous micro-brewed beers, capturing our hearts and tastebuds, as well as the attention of other, less sexy media outlets, such as US news show Rock Center. After a chilly winter, Great Leap has opened its cosy courtyard once more, although there's now a maximum capacity, so you'll need a reservation to ensure you get in.

Its new larger Xinzhongjie location, also has a number of outdoor tables, but at peak hours you may have to fight it out for one of these.
