• Modern attractions in Beijing

    2010-10-18

    Beijing’s tourist and nightlife offerings are continuing to evolve and expand two years after the city’s organization of the Olympic Games.

    Sanlitun Village is considered by many to be the heart of the city’s expatriate nightlife scene, where bars like Apothecary and D.Lounge are concocting original cocktails, such as gin mixed with pomelo-lavender bitters and tea-infused vermouth. The Japanese whiskey bar Ichikura serves rare flavored and scented whiskeys.

    For a truly unique experience, visitors can seek out Temple Kitchen, a restaurant located in a 700-year-old Buddhist temple. The menu features traditional dishes of the area, such as sea cucumber and abalone. For a more modern and irreverent twist on Chinese cuisine, Room Beijing serves dishes like chicken wontons with avocado dip and raspberry and herb infused chocolate pop tarts.

    Those with an ample budget and a taste for luxury can check into a Gold Room at the Fairmont Beijing, which comes complete with heated floors and 24-karat-gold showerheads. A more affordable alternative may be Yi House, a boutique hotel in Beijing’s art district. The rooms come furnished with photography and other artwork by local artists.
