Beijing 2015: Hong Qiao Market & Dada Bar

3 Feb


After having our out of the city adventure, we decided to wind-down with some shopping and drinks..

Hongqiao Market is one of the known markets in Beijing. They’re known to have everything — electronic gadgets, fashion items, home furniture, jewelry and Chinese products aka everything including a Starbucks Coffee branch. 20150826_181202

Prices here are extremely padded for us tourists. I felt extremely accomplished after bargaining down the price of a Xiaomi 10000mAh Powerbank.  This feeling soon passed when I used the item to find out that the battery life of the damn charger does not even last an hour. lol. I was fooled.20150826_181157


After freshening up in our place, we dropped by Dada Bar. Quite unsure if we visited on a slow-day but the bar only had a few guests which was a welcome experience after a long day.


We enjoyed the chill hipster vibe  — dimmed lights, eclectic music, comfy couches and pretty strong cocktails.


After playing some games on the nintendo and on the foosball, we were ready for end our night-cap.
