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

We tried almost every craft beer on their menu. They were all so delish! Service was really good, with staff finding u stools to sit on. U can also explore the brewing area. There were 3 different bands the night we went! Really fun!
