Picture of Fran Lu
Updated: 3 November 2017
If there’s anything more pleasant than a glass of wine after an exhausting day, it has to be a glass of wine on a rooftop with a broad vision. Culture Trip selects the nine best rooftop bars in Beijing with the top-quality drinks, snacks, and views.

YIN on 12 Rooftop Bar

Bar, Restaurant, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

This bar, with a spacious 1,100-meter lounge on the top floor of the New World Beijing Hotel has a great view of commercial Beijing, especially during sunset and evening. The relaxing atmosphere and chill-out music make the bar suitable for a small group of friends or lone guests.

Arrow Factory Taproom

Pub, Gastropub, Pub Grub, German, $$$
Save to wishlist

Arrow Factory Taproom is a craft beer bar in a Siheyuan (traditional Chinese courtyard). Here you can try the local craft beers named after slangs from the Beijing dialect while pigging out on the Stuff’d homemade sausage that cannot be found anywhere else. While the front door and windows of the bar were bricked up in Beijing government’s urban appearance transformation campaign, you’ll have to make a detour through the back door.

Stuff’d has fallen victim to everyone’s favourite citywide brick campaign. But along with our taproom both are still open for business! Over the past few months Beijing has experienced a huge citywide gentrification drive from the government. Many of the hutong hotspots you know and love have been affected by these public renovations resulting in a large number of businesses closing. And unfortunately we weren’t able to dodge the brick and our time has come. On the afternoon of Wednesday, August 9 workers arrived at Stuff’d, began knocking down our front façade and started to lay their bricks. But don't fret. Stuff’d and the Arrow Factory Brewing taproom are still open and running as normal with no changes (apart from a new closure time of 10pm every night due to a neighbour’s request). We will keep you updated if there are any more surprises. In the meantime we thank you and appreciate your continued support! #anotherbrickinthewall #brickattack #thegreatbrickingof2017 #stuffd #arrowfactorybrewing

Save to wishlist

Imagining yourself having a beer on the rooftop of a two-floor building in one of the most robust hutong areas in Beijing, closer to the cloudless autumn sky than the crowds down in the alley That’s not a dream, thanks to Toast at The Orchid.

Very Siam

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

The reason this restaurant is recommended is, firstly, its amazing food, then the rooftop dining environment. The Thai food here is so good and authentic that Very Siam is dubbed by many as the best Thai restaurant in Beijing. Located in a fairly concealed position in an alley, the restaurant is for guests who attach importance to privacy.

Migas Sanlitun

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish, $$$
Save to wishlist

No foodies in Beijing are unfamiliar with the Nali Patio in Sanlitun, the patio packed with the best western restaurants and bars in town. The Spanish restaurant Migas is the top restaurant of them all—taking up the top floor all by itself. How about a Sangria to go with the night view of Sanlitun from above?

Migas Mercado

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish, $$$
Save to wishlist

The other branch of Migas also has a rooftop bar, but with a very different view—you can see the spacious view of the Guomao CBD area, with the iconic building of China Central TV Station, nicknamed “Big Pants,” so close to you that it feels like it’s within an arm’s distance. The Spanish food at the Mercado branch is, of course, as good as the Sanlitun one.

Xiu

Bar, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

The bar on the rooftop of the Yintai Shopping Center has a stunning architectural style inspired by the Song Dynasty. It might be a fresh experience for rooftop lovers as the bar on the sixth floor is literally circled by a group of skyscrapers instead of a spacious city view. The bar provides various kinds of cocktails along with BBQ and Roast Lamb.
