TOP 5 ROOFTOP BARS

Article By XIANEASE

Summer has come and, though the days will be hot, the nights will be just right for a bit of al fresco fun. We last tackled this topic a couple of years ago but, due to the feverish pace of the Xi’an bar scene, that article is currently very, very wrong. So, let’s dive in for a long-overdue update and get you up on some roofs with a nice cold drink.

TRAVELLING WITH HOSTEL
阅城瓦舍

Travelling With has really settled into their location next to Zhuque Gate, and now that their renovations are done it’s time to go check out the great roof deck. You might be a bit deterred by the steep and numerous stairs to get up there, and the drinks are only the normal assortment, but the vistas are totally worth it.

Address:
No.21 Shuncheng Alley, inside Zhuque Gate, Beilin District
西安市碑林区朱雀门里顺城南巷21号
Phone: (029) 8726 2670

Mt. South Brewery Bar
南山精酿

Our reviewer David Lee had a great time here, writing that Mt. South is “trying to be everything to everybody.” With nearly twenty beers on tap and gourmet food options for dinner, it seems like they’re largely succeeding at that. You can enjoy everything on offer on their roof, which is pretty and, on just the right kind of day, you’ll be able to catch a mountain too.

Address:
Roof top, 4# building, Yun Long Da Sha, Bai shu lin.
东大街柏树林十字云龙大厦4号楼顶楼 (金帝宾馆和墨寒广告中间楼道电梯上12楼)
Phone: 150-9175-0946    Open Hours: 4:00pm – 2:00am

TASTY HOUSE
奇妙屋

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by choice, perhaps you could simplify your life with a trip to Tasty House. Instead of encyclopedic menus you’ll only have a couple of options, generally along the lines of “beer and hamburger.” Both are very good, and a seat on the roof patio watching something on the projection screen sounds like a nice evening to us.

Address:
No.37, San Xue Street, Beilin District.
碑林区三学街37号 长安学巷口
Phone: (029) 8962 9386
152-9118-2999
Open Hours: 3:00pm – Midnight

云 YUN BAR

Yun Bar will be a breath of fresh air for people who are tired of the same-old-same-old “beer and South Gate” song and dance routine. Tucked down in Xiaozhai, you’ll get a nice change of locale, and some great cocktails at affordable prices.

Address: 2F, Opposite of Yu Cai Middle School, Hang Gang cheng, Xing Shan Temple
兴善寺东街海港城育才中学对面2层云吧
Phone: 177-8283-8031    187-9256-7167
Open Hours: 8:00pm – 2:00am

ROOF BAR
逢城城咖啡露台

Formerly “Roof Coffee Bar,” Roof Bar is this month’s “so, you don’t really want to drink” option. A large café menu is at your disposal, complete with pasta, sandwiches, salads, juices and more. Add to that the lushly decorated patio, and you’ve found a nice place to sun up for the afternoon.

Address:
30 meters Shun Cheng East Lane, Inside South Gate.
南门里顺城东巷30米处
Phone: (029) 8738 5800
Open Hours: 10:00am – 2:00pm

One thought on “TOP 5 ROOFTOP BARS

  1. Hi,
    I tried to find the Mt. South, but the address and description of how to get there is unfortunately insufficient, at least for me. Even the locals I asked for directions seemed very insecure. I still have som time left in Xian and I am still eager to try out the Mt. South. Would it be possible for you to send me a image/map with the exact location pinned?
