At the intersections of Di'anmen Wai, Nei, Dong and Xidajie
Behind the popular chestnut roasters
This Di'anmen space is the live music venue people have been calling "the new D-22" since before it even opened. It opens as a café and record shop during the day, turning into a lean, mean, experimental machine at night. They've got Slow Boat Brewery beers on tap, as well as their usual cheap Qingdao.

The reincarnation of D-22 at the Di’anmen intersection takes the experimental aesthetic and adds a couple of bells and whistles. In addition to a wider selection of beers—¥15 Qingdaos and ¥40 Slow Boat brews—they’re selling merch at the front. But XP isn’t just about rock ‘n’ roll—they plan to cater to the laptop crowd with coffee and extra tables. Plus, they host a monthly flea market. But the way we see it, these extras only add to the DIY spirit behind the venue. ■ Alex Searson
