Small Horse’s Day

Small Horse’s Day

Xianqian Lu Bar Street | 县前街酒吧 The section of Xianqian Street (县前街) between Diecui Road (叠翠路) and West Street (西街) is full of buzzing bars with live music. Most feature a solo singer on a guitar in a small bar space with seating both indoors, upstairs and out in front. Most serve local and imported beers but cocktails are highly recommended.

Note that the bars don’t have English names so look for the Chinese characters. The English names included here are simply translations of the Chinese names.

Look for the horse-head light on the front and side of this small establishment. The Tibetan-themed bar sits at the corner of Xianqian Street just as you cross over the bridge from Diecui Road. It has a balcony with three tables that overlook the canal. This is a perfect place to sit with friends to chat over your day’s highlights while enjoying drinks and music.
