  • Located on the 80th floor of the China World Summit Wing of Beijing's World Trade Center, this Shangri-La Hotel managed property offers a penthouse-level lounge and bar popular with Beijing's visiting business set. Officially the highest bar in the city, Atmosphere offers a sophisticated style of monochromatic grey and black color tones mixed with LED pendant lighting that mimics that actual sky intersperses with chandeliers. A sizable lounge, most guests stake out one of the numerous sofa arrangements with bold Mao red pillows or cushy club chairs. The crowd ranges from dapper local businessmen in Zegna suits to visiting Westerners that gravitate to the professional single's scene for happy hour and late-night live entrainment.

    Keep in mind that smoking is still allowed in most Beijing bars and non-smoking sections are best requested in advance.
