Lan, Beijing

4/F Twintowers
12 Jianguomenwai Avenue
Tel: 86 10 5109 6012's insider take:

Designed by Philippe Starck and owned by Zhang Lan's South Beauty group, this grandiose, nearly 6,500-square-foot restaurant, bar, and club is signature Starck, only more so. It's a veritable design cornucopia of winged-eagle thrones, portraits, freestanding gold-framed mirrors, Mao-era memorabilia, and private dining rooms housed in Mongolian yurt tents. The club lounge has a Europe-meets-New-China vibe, with French DJ, hallucinatory video images, and Beijing's smart set socializing to impress.

Open daily, 11 am to 2 am.
