After the standard rice and noodles, one of the most iconic parts of China’s food culture is baijiu. This good old “white wine” is sure to burn on the way down, but its complex flavors and intriguing aroma will leave you wanting more. (Don’t worry, you can’t remove nailpolish with it, despite what some people might claim.)
Capital Spirits is the world’s first bar dedicated to Baijiu and craft liquor. With a visit to their location in a historic Beijing hutong that Greek architect Anna Pipilis has restored, you can experience the taste of Old Beijing.
Capital Spirits offers a distinctive hand-picked stock of Baijiu, craft Chinese beers, lesser known fine spirits from around the world, and specialty baijiu cocktails by an award winning Beijing bartender / Mixologist. They were also featured in NY Times 36 Hours in Beijing, Conde Nast Traveler’s A Guide to Beijing’s Hutongs and are the Winner of Time Out Beijing’s 2014 Spirits Specialist Bar, so they’ve got to be good!
Still not convinced about baijiu? Let Capital Spirits’ expert staff passionately take you on a journey of baijiu flights and finally discover the real spirit of China.
