Ring in the New Year at Beijing's Highest Bar

Baz Luhrmann's recent blockbuster The Great Gatsby reminded us all of an elegant age almost a century ago, when beautiful men and women enjoyed life to the full. For those lucky enough to be spending their New Year's Eve in Beijing, there's a chance to relive that long-gone era - in Atmosphere, the capital's highest and most exclusive bar.


Perched atop Shangri-La's China World Summit Wing, Atmosphere is an iconic location that plays host to equally iconic figures all year round. Even if you don't happen to be a movie star or sporting legend, though, you can still feel like one as you sip an icy cocktail and gaze out across the entire expanse of Beijing. At night especially, the view is simply stunning. There's no better place to watch the city come alive.

Under the guidance of renowned mixologist Attila Balint, Atmosphere stands head and shoulders above other bars - both literally and metaphorically - when it comes to cocktails. A connoisseur of tea culture, Balint has employed this deep passion to create a number of novel and exquisite concoctions. One must-have is the Goa Shan Lady, a sweet and flowery blend of Cointreau, fresh lime juice, honey, bitter orange marmalade, and Beefeater Gin infused with Gao Shan Oolong. One mouthful and you'll be hooked.

Don't miss the chance to indulge in Balint's delightful cocktails and enjoy a sophisticated night of 1920s glamour almost half a mile above the earth this New Year's Eve. If you're looking for a party that would leave even Jay Gatsby himself in awe, Atmosphere is definitely the place to be.
