Hail the Green Fairy in Gulou
Modernista started out as one of the few places in Beijing to offer absinthe—and the Old World atmosphere of this bar is the perfect setting for arty bohemians and European expats alike (we highly suspect the two overlap). But this (mostly) classy establishment also offers well-mixed cocktails and local craft brews on tap. Modernista hosts local bands in genres like jazz (naturally) and folk, and their weekend brunch is worth trying if you are based in Gulou.
