Penghao Theatre & Cafe

A nice place to either drop by for a meal or coffee in Beijing is the Penghao Theatre & Cafe. It is located along a foot alley in 35 Dong Mian Hua Hutong in a traditional courtyard house. Performances are not only in Chinese, so that this is one of the few drama performance places in Beijing which also is a place for non / or no good Chinese speakers. The theatre itself can host an audience of about 130 and is just beside the restaurant. The location is very close to the film school and these few blocks of Hutongs are exceptionally picturesque and have a quite special cultural atmosphere.
