You don't want the cheap, 10RMB beer bars that dot the area behind Sanlitun. You don't want students screaming in one another's ears about midterms or apartment rentals. You want Beijing's upscale bars, a place where you can relax, enjoy a fine drink and nice company without overly loud music or cheap and tacky decor.
The World of Suzie Wong is a great upscale bar that caters to working-class expats and locals. You'll find excellently poured drinks being served to a discerning crowd of men and women eager to have a good time and meet new people.
The Lobby Lounge and Cloud Nine bars are upscale hotel bars that serve only the finest drinks to a crowd that is focused on business, pleasure and enjoying the off hours.
For fine dining as well as upscale drinks and decor, try Qi Restaurant, where the food won't disappoint and later at night, neither will the drinks and fine company.
Song, Redmoon, Centro and Tonic Lounge are all trendy upscale bars that offer delicious drinks, snack and cater to a crowd of yuppies, working folks and determined businessmen and women from around the world.
