Pass By Bar was opened in1999 by Xiao Biar. The original local clientele has given way to affluent Chinese and foreign hipsters drawn to the open courtyard seating and the soundtrack of Tibetan drums. Relocated in a resorted courtyard house down a hutong east of Qian Hai in 2002, Tibetan-themed Pass-by is more a gathering place than night spot, with an extensive English-language library, a useful message board, rotating photo exhibits on the walls, and a good mix of Chinese and foreign regulars. There's great Italian food and a separate nonsmoking section-almost unheard -of in a Beijing bar. The countyard is idyllic in summer with outdoor seating. Internet access is available.
