Few venues give as unique a view of Beijing as does Atmosphere Bar, set atop China World Summit Wing, the city's tallest building.
On a clear day, you can see landmarks such as Tiananmen Square, the Bird's Nest stadium from the 2008 Olympics, and the angular CCTV building—known as "the pants," since it resembles a pair of legs bent at the knees—from this 80th-floor venue. Best of all, there are windows in all directions, allowing you to get a 360-degree view of the Beijing skyline.
The menu includes top-notch cocktails, as well as coffee, juice, wine, and more. Those seeking a full meal can dine in the ritzy Grill 79, one floor below.
Note: Tank tops, flip flops, and so on are not advised. Smart casual, especially during the evening, is the default dress code.
