The Best Bars and Pubs in Beijing

Picture of Fran Lu
Updated: 26 October 2017
From house-brewed rice wines, to craft beers made from local grains, to cocktails innovatively blended with Chinese tea, and all kinds of wines from around the world – no matter which specific kind of alcohol is your favorite, Beijing’s bars and pubs won’t let you down.

Chang Ting Jiu Si

Pub, Bar, Chinese, $$$
Save to wishlist

There’s an old saying in China that goes, “Good wine won’t be affected by the deep alley,” which means that guests won’t be stopped from finding good wine even if the pub is hidden in an obscure alley. This might be a perfect description of Chang Ting Jiu Si. The pub, situated on the Gulou Xidajie, looks quite modest from the front, but walking inside you’ll be impressed by the bottles of rice wines and scented wines all brewed by the pub’s owner herself. Here, you may also find out how particular Chinese people are about the harmony of the wine bottle with the wine. You may even be able to purchase some exquisitely made wine bottles as souvenir.

HOTARU Whisky & Cocktail Bar

Gastropub, Pub, Japanese, $$$
Save to wishlist

The Japanese bar features fruit-based whisky cocktails. The bartender is a master at matching the right wine with different kinds of seasonal fruit, and can make you the cocktail of your own according to your preference of alcohol intensity and flavor. Since HOTARU was opened by the same owner of the famous Kokoroya Sushi Restaurant, there’s no need to worry about the quality of the snacks provided at the bar.

Atmosphere Bar

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

Located on the 80th floor of the China World Tower in Guomao, the Atmosphere Bar provides you with a selection of fine wines and a vista of the city from its financial center. The bar’s resident bands may be a pleasure for music lovers, though the music might be too loud for those who feel like chatting. The bar also provides high tea in the afternoon.

Liao Zhai

Gastropub, Pub, Chinese, $$$
Save to wishlist

The Chinese phrase “Liao Zhai” is famous for the collection of marvel stories named Liao Zhai Zhi Yi (Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio) written by Pu Songling during the Qing Dynasty. The phrase literally means “a house for talks.” And that’s exactly what the small pub Liao Zhai is suitable for. It features house-brewed Chinese Shaoxing wines and fruit wines served in small bottles. It provides a few Chinese dishes as snacks, with the noodles with soybean paste being its only main course.

Flower Manna

Pub, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

Adventurous people may find Flower Manna a very attractive bar. Instead of giving its guests a menu filled with terms they don’t understand, Manna lets people select their favorite painting or sentence, before making a unique cocktail combining with the guests’ preferred flavors. It’s okay if you don’t want to take any risks, because Manna has a list of beautifully named cocktails for you to choose from, too.

Noon Bar

Pub, Cafe, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

The Noon Bar is run by a group of writers – so you could say the Noon Bar is more of a hobby than a job, because writing for the Noon Story, China’s biggest platform of original literature, during the day is their main occupation. The alcohols here are all selected by the writers themselves based on their own tastes. You may find Belgium’s Delirium Nocturnum and China’s Lanling Rice Wine here – you may also even discover what it’s like to drink Twinings at a bar.

Long Jing

Pub, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

The bar’s name, derived from Longjing green tea, might confuse you over its real identity, but it is indeed a bar instead of a tea house. You can’t miss their specialty Long Jing Cocktail, which is mixed from Longjing green tea leaves. The bar has seasonal menus in which the cocktails are named after the 24 Solar Terms. If you wish to taste the Vernal Equinox or the Winter Solstice, then Long Jing is exactly your bar.
