"Mani-Longda", a Tibetan expression meaning the five-color streamer with a patrolling windhorse carrying on the back "norbu moba", a coniform flame standing for prosperity, is believed to be an auspicious sign empowered to reach both gods of the heaven and the earth by Tibetan natives.

Today, a Tibetan U-Tsang region style saloon, the Mani-Longda Tibetan Tangka Art Bar, turns up at Beijing's streetcorner to connect the heavenly plateau and the bustling metropolis.

Priding itself on being the nation's first snack and art bar with original Tibetan cuisines as well as on-site artist creation of Tangka, a silk, satin or cloth painting scroll themed on Tibetan history, culture, religion and folklores, the Mani-Longda Tibetan Tangka Art Bar, lures the appetite and catches the eyeball of Beijingers and Tibetans living and studying in the capital city.

Surrounded by the Yonghe Lamasery, the Tibet Hotel, Beijing Tibetan Middle School, China Tibetology Research Center, Beijing Tibetan Hospital and the building for traditional Tibetan medical treatment, the Mani-Longda bar is bathed within a cluster of Tibetan setups that compass Beijing's core area of Tibetan culture.

Its design and decoration entirely accomplished by skilled Tibetan hands from Lhasa, and service all tended by native Tibetans, the two-storey Mani-Longda Tibetan Tangka Art Bar gives profound display of Tibetan style of the U-Tsang region, the central areas of Tibet's cultural fountainhead such as Lhasa, Xigaze and Lhoka prefectures.

With the first floor of the bar serving as a barroom, the Mani-Longda brings forth original Tibetan song and dance performance, round-the-clock Tibetan flavored banquet and refreshments, and furthers special Tibetan snacks during monthly festivals according to the traditional Tibetan calendar.

The second-floor Tibetan Tangka art gallery features everyday on-the-spot painting of Tangka scrolls performed by native Tangka artists from Lhasa who are also participants of mural renovation of the Jokhang Monastery and the Tashilhunpo Monastery. Custom-tailored Tangka painting is also available at the gallery.
