Concierge.com's insider take:
Though housed in the basement of a shopping mall, Song is one of Beijing's most creative bars. The concept is infused with both traditional and future China. A striking layered cream interior symbolizes China's famous terraced rice paddies, while the music mix, cocktail selection, and patrons are distinctly New Beijing. Live music and DJs are supplemented by occasional open-mike hip-hop nights. Popular with a young, stylish set, Song represents an innovative new style of Beijing lounge that eschews bling for quality beatsand seems set to influence the direction of Beijing's new venues in the coming years.
Open daily, 11 am to 3 am.
