Q: Decent/inexpensive wine bars in Beijing?

I'm getting a bit sick of Qingdao beer and fake hard alcohol. Does anyone know of any decent/inexpensive "wine bars" in Beijing?

By decent I mean *not* Chinese produced or bottled wine. 
By inexpensive I mean under 50 RMB per glass.

thanks!

Although inexpensive sounds good, it's probably not a good idea. There's a lot of money in fake wine. Some of it doesn't even have grapes, it's just flavoring. If you can't see the bottle before they open it to check if it's real, I wouldn't trust it, especially if you want something cheap. You're better off buying your own bottle, and even then, you still need to check and make sure.

Check out Cheers on Sanlitun jiubajie. It's really more of an import wine shop than bar, but you can sit in there and have a bottle or glass of wine at really decent prices (think 30-40 rmb for a whole bottle of French or Spanish wine). It's got no atmosphere and plastic stools, but if it's cheap wine you're looking for then Cheers fits the bill!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
