Here, a roundup of things we ate and gossiped about this month – for journalism, for research, for you, readers.

Autumn is a season of changes, and Beijing’s bars and restaurants are following suit. As we pile on the layers and wait patiently for central heating this month, there are plenty of places to keep warm – and most offer booze and food. 

Over in Lido, Annie’s upscale Italian restaurant Ponte has unveiled a small ‘secret’ bar in its venue, where you can enjoy classic cocktail like negronis and quality whiskeys – essential for a breezy fall night. 

Fresh Chinese fine-dining concept Ling Long just opened up on the third floor of co-living space Stey in Sanlitun. Get a taste of classic Chinese dishes reimagined by Chef Jason Liu (two words: roast duck). Keep an eye out for our full review.

Tribe is embracing the chilly weather outside with a new menu full of comforting guilt-free goodies, like a light tomato soup with herb-infused breadcrumbs, a tuna-cauliflower based grain bowl, topped with grapefruit, orange and avocado, and a gluten-free smoked salmon cauliflower pizza with cream cheese, dill and capers.

Over in Sanlitun, cocktail joint 50/50 is rolling out autumn specials featuring drinks like the Yuja Punch, made with chamomile-infused rye whiskey, yuja tea marmalade, pineapple, lemon and honey, as well as punch bowls (serves 10-15 people). After celebrating its one-year anniversary, the bar is looking to add weekly themed events geared toward creating safe spaces to get your drink on, like a ‘femme’ night (for the ladies in the house) and an LGBT night. It’s all still in the works, so stay tuned for exact details.
