If you enjoy Peking Opera this is the place to go, as a troupe of aria-singing actors regularly take to the stage in this enormous teahouse and theater. It is named for Lao She, the writer of China's famous pre-revolutionary play Tea House. The atmosphere reflects the time and sentiments of a bygone era, when Chinese intellectuals were experimenting with Western ideas and war and instability were rocking Beijing. A large wooden hall full of tables seats 50 to 100. Tea is the major draw and there is a great snack menu including dried plums, pastries and baozi (steamed buns). Opens daily at 7:50pm.
