Beijing offers a great variety of places to enjoy the best in traditional Chinese cooking. The new Bao House, located at the north entrance to The Opposite House Hotel, is making a name for itself. It is the first example of a food truck in the city, completely run by the hotel staff, with a traditional menu and a variety of cocktails.
The Jing Yao Tang restaurant, again in The Opposite House Hotel, is a must for duck dishes. The partnership between the Swire Hotels Group and the famous restaurateur Alan Yau, offers an elegant and stylish setting, a rich menu and impeccable service, whereas Capital M, in Qianmen Street, the main shopping street for over 600 years, offers an awe-inspiring view of the historic city center: classic dishes in a stunning setting.
A Lounge, Cigar Room and Private Room with Mediterranean influence and Asian tastes can be found at the bistro, Brian McKenna @ The Courtyard, by the award-winning Chef of the same name. Finally, Janes and Hooch is the place to go for those looking for somewhere to sip experimental drinks, in a contemporary setting with retro touches. A bar with cosmopolitan appeal in the heart of the Sanlitun district, which is also popular with the international jet set.
