Lotus Cafe & Bar


in Beihai Park & Xicheng North

At this popular rooftop cafe with seating indoors and out, your coffee, cake or sandwich is served with a side order of eye candy: the White Dagoba Temple, all 59 curvaceous metres of it, lording it over temple halls and surrounding hutong. With craft beer and wine available too, it's a super spot for sundowner drinks. Find it above the Pagoda Light hostel.
