When TRB opens a new restaurant, we’ve got to try it. This one had us hiking to Chaoyang Joy City, all the way to the fifth and sixth floors (yeah, the restaurant is two stories), to find European-style food that is – pardon our French – just damn delicious.

Delivering a cultivated selection of beers, burgers, pizza, and wings, Beer Boom wants to shake up things in Gongti with a new burger joint concept. Located east from the stadium where the Beijing Guoan team plays their home games, it’s a great spot to grab a couple of brews before heading to watch the Big Green make Beijing proud.

This new Wangjing jazz bar has it all: They've got plenty of old jazz LPs, black-and-white posters of jazz legends and even a Game of Thrones-esque shrine to the eponymous Mississippi bluesman B.B. King, where the swords are swapped for the necks of six mutilated guitars. (Though we wouldn't mind dimmer lighting.)

Nestled in a quiet hutong is the very cozy (and very Instagrammable) M Coffee. Set inside the industrial courtyard space next to its sister restaurant The Merchants, the design-forward cafe is bright and inviting, perfect for a lazy afternoon stroll on the weekends.

Man, that summer heat is really kicking in, huh? Next time you’re feeling the heat, get yourself to Raffles City where there’s a brand-new Berlin-style froyo spot on the bottom floor. Choose from their two tart frozen yogurt flavors and go wild with the wide selection of toppings.
