The Hutong’s Gorgeous Rooftop will host their annual Summer Fayre this Saturday, June 11!
The hutongs in Beijing are best viewed in summer when the trees are lush and green and everyone is out and about proudly sporting their Beijing “bikini” (and by everyone, I mean men with their white tanks knotted up and their beer bellies out for all to admire). Oh, the summer months in Beijing are a glorious time of year and somehow always feel far too short so you’ve got to savor them while you can!
The Hutong has got the right idea with their awesome annual Summer Fayre. While everyone knows that The Hutong’s Christmas fayre is the jolliest of them all with their abundant pots of spiced mulled wine and effervescent holiday cheer all around, their gorgeous rooftop has never looked better than at their summer fayre packed with plenty of artisan food items and plenty of sunshine.
“Here comes the sun! Drop by our Hutong to get together, meet old friends and make new ones, and munch and sip in our cozy courtyard. To celebrate all things summer, we will be serving attendees a free glass of our secret-recipe Hutong Summer Fruit Punch. Make a toast with your ice-cold glass, taste gourmet goodies from Beijing culinary artisans and restaurateurs, savor some of the capital’s best local brews, and try out some summertime jewelry and apparel.” - The Hutong

Pick Up Some Handmade Handicrafts at The Hutong’s Winter Fayre
Most of Beijing’s Christmas bazaars and fairs have all been taking place across the city in various embassies and hotels over the past couple weekends, but The Hutong’s Winter Fayre is the LAST Christmas Bazaar of the year.
A culture exchange center, The Hutong is all about connecting Beijingers to local entrepreneurs who have come up with a line of quality, noteworthy products. So if you’ve missed out on the other bazaars around town, this is your last chance to stock up on Christmas presents to bring back home while also treating yourself to some piping hot cups of vin brulé (mulled wine) and other tasty treats.
“Fayre is an old English word describing a fun gathering featuring a range of locally produced goods made and sourced from, and connected to the local community. Our Fayre is a place to catch up with friends and enjoy the holiday spirit, and promises to be a fun day out for the whole family.”
