In July 2006, Chinese band Catcher in the Rye released its third album, Our World, at Boys and Girls.

A 60-year-old woman surnamed Dai said she loved to relax in bar street when she was young. "It was fashionable to do this. I even met Zhou Xun, a Chinese singer and actress, in bar street," she said.

On Tuesday, the last day that bars in the street were allowed to operate, many people visited the location to say goodbye to the bars and take photos of the occasion.

A woman surnamed Xue, who had just left a bar after drinking for an hour, said, "Initially, the price of a bottle of wine or spirits in this street ranged from 10 to 30 yuan. My father only earned 37.50 yuan a month. Luckily, I obtained my English-language tour guide license at 18 and achieved financial independence. That's why I could afford such luxury."
