Copying the age-old look of a chic brewery, Luga’s new brewery and bistro in Dongzhimen is your one-stop shop for mediocre Mexican and all the typical bar entertainment. Here you can enjoy a somewhat spicy guacamole salsa (RMB48), while choosing between talking to your friends, watching sports, playing pool, beer pong or sequestering yourself with a lonely arcade game in a back corner. On our visit, we opt for a sour cream-smothered beef steak burrito (RMB82), washed down with a tequila-heavy margarita (this is not a bad thing, RMB39). We’re left full but uninspired, though happy to be away from the booze-fueled Sanlitun crowd.
