Nanluogu Xiang at Fuxiang Hutong, Beijing 100009, China

This bar’s name accurately represents its size—which, at 130 square feet, is easily the smallest in the city (and possibly all of China). The tiny nook contains just three wooden barstools and a booth big enough for four. Despite its Lilliputian size, though, the bar serves a full range of beer and liquors—including several top-notch Scottish single malts. The space constraints mean patrons occasionally spill out into the street, but given that 12 sqm’s set on a bustling hutong with a colorful cast of passing characters, that’s just part of the fun.
