Capital Spirits Baijiu Bar & Distillery
A low-lit, speakeasy-style bar, Capital Spirits is dedicated to educating visitors and Beijingers on the nuances of baijiu, China’s national liquor. (It’s similar to grappa.) Tasting flights of more than 20 varieties, including a snake-infused baijiu from Guangdong, are accompanied by a mini-tutorial from the bartender. A nearby sister bar, the Distillery, serves small-batch, house-distilled gin.
