Arch Bar

Cocktail Bar in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Tucked away inside the Duan Qirui Former Government Building, this exquisite cocktail bar plays on its historic location with exposed beams, a 100-year-old brick feature wall, and a private room styled with Chinese folk art. First-rate cocktails come with a first-class price tag (¥85-120), but there is bottled beer (¥30) if you don't fancy splashing too much cash.

To find Arch inside the Duan Qirui compound, turn right at the clock tower and continue east for 50m; the bar is the low brick building on your left.
