Imperial >>

  • Red Capital Club 1950s retro cigar and cocktail lounge, and a general atmosphere to bring back the good old days. Hotpot and a broader range of Beijing specialties.

  • Li Jia Cai Imperial Court Food specialist, this hutong-based restaurant offers a set menu – in other words, you eat what you're offered. But make sure you book well-in advance – Li Jia Cai is heavily oversubscribed.

  • Baijia Dazhaimen Restaurant A courtyard restaurant in the grand imperial tradition. Expect to see a select clientele dining well on an exotic and up market menu and enjoying, if that's the word, short performances of Beijing Opera favourites.
