Hidden in the 'eight great hutongs' of Dashilan, this little gem is a real find. Housed in a former brothel, Berry Beans Café is now a modern and charming coffee house. They serve a good quality cup of coffee but also a bunch of other drinks, including home-brewed beers. You can sit in the modern, glass area inside and have a look at the designer clothes next door. But the best seats are in the courtyard or upstairs on the roof terrace. From here you have a view over the maze of hutongs, which used to be Beijing's red light district in the imperial era.
