They had a variety there. I met some fun local people and we played drinking games. Food is quasi-western. I only had the Hamburger and the meat was average. Beer was great. I stuck to an ALL DAY IPA they had at the time. All...More

Called in for a cooling ale or 3, when recently there! Pleasant craft beers, but watch out for the very hot chilli pieces in the free peanuts. Didnt have any food there, but other meals we saw looked very good.

Had a few beers with a mate here on a warm evening in September. Just a good place to have an ale of three after cycling on the wall

Right inside the old city wall. Live music, friendly crowd. IPA was delicious. Try the German Kölsch too.

Had supper here with friends and I am guessing this is as good as it gets in Xian for Western Food. We enjoyed our meal and the service was good. They are trying to look like Hard Rock Cafe, but that is OK.

Came here as my husband loved beer and works at a brewery. Tried the wit, which was okay. Was expecting a laid back vibe, but apparently this place acts more like a club, lots of loud music, hookahs, and strobe lights. The service here, like...More

Visited here on a tourist trip to Xi’an. I wanted something that gave us a happy medium between western comfort food but kept a local feel; Near Wall did not disappoint. The bar is tucked away on a quaint side street that runs along the...More

I'm all in favour of entrepreneur spirit but you have to wonder if enthusiasm has over reached capability here. We dropped in late afternoon, I tried two of the beers, both were green and needed time to settle and mature. Before you write me off...More
