Located on the second floor of Nali Patio, Pickering's Seafood and Gin Bar is the Scottish company's first attempt to penetrate the baijiu-dominated Chinese market. The interior represents a modern take on the 1920's spirits bar concept that seems to be all the rage now and the drinks menu lives up to our expectations, with more than 100 gin varieties to choose from and outstanding gin-based cocktails.

Devised by Colombian chef Juan Mateus, the substantial list of offerings set themselves apart by distinctive flavors from Thailand and the Mediterranean.

Arch Bar

Arch is a lounge bar to its very core – it's classier than it needs to be, but it holds on to that easthetic fiercely. Finding this new speakeasy requires a few right turns, but its luxe interior and the its signature cocktails make it worth the hunt.

What catches our eye walking into this quiet Dongzhimen bakery and cafe are three diplomas from Le Cordon Bleu, that stand as a guarantee on the quality of the brioche pastries, colorful macarons and buttery croissants served inside.
