Glen focuses on well-made drinks and, above all, whiskey. The concept is a Japanese whiskey bar, and the fine collection of single malts from around the world is prominently displayed behind the counter. As in any decent Tokyo whiskey house, the focal point is the back-lit bar, where the mixologist hand-chips the ice and prepares drinks with an artist's eye and a chef's dexterity. Nothing happens too fast here, so slouch in a cozy armchair, cradle a glass of Scotch, and lose yourself in the laid-back ambience—not many Beijing bars are made this way.—Gary Bowerman

Open daily 6 pm to 2 am.
