Sanlitun's famous bar street, a strip located across from the Taikooli shopping complex in Beijing, has been closed for renovation as the buildings were deemed unsafe after third-party appraisal, prompting many visitors to stop by and take photos.

The street, home to some of the city's oldest bars, received a D grade for structural safety and integrity, meaning the venue is no longer suitable for operation.

Other types of businesses such as coffee shops and restaurants offering healthy food will be opened on the street as the bars renovate, a local official said, adding even with their arrival, the area will still be known as bar street.
