“Good view, expensive drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

This place has a fantastic view of the city, which I think is what draws people to this typical, overpriced bar. The drink selection is fairly extensive, but not really worth the price they charge. Go one for the view, but expect to pay the price!

“Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

First of all you ave a very nice view from the 80thFloor all over Beijing. The drinkprices are reasonable. And what is most important the staf are helpul,friendly and polite. When we came there was no table close to window free and where sitting somwhere else and orderd drinks. After a certain time the waiter came to our table and ask us if we would like a table near the window,this is very good service.We will come back next time and have dinner in the Restaurant.

“Great view on a clear day/night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The view is great from the lounge area. The bar can be a bit loud with the live music playing. In the lounge area, you can sit right next to the window on the many couches there to enjoy the view.

I agree with the other reviews that the prices are a bit high, but you pay because of the view. 90RMB isn't a lot for someone from the US but it is definitely expensive for the locals. Many of the standard drinks start off at 90RMB and goes up from there.

The bar and lounge closes at 1am.

“Stratospheric views and stratospheric prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

A great place to meet for a drink. On a clear day/night (ha) you'll get a great view of Beijing spreading below you. But unless you are feeling particularly flush, make it just that: a drink, single. Prices are enough to make your head spin... 90RMB for a G'n'T... wow.

“Missed Opportunity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This place has some great drinks on the menu and the overall design is not too bad, but isn't the idea of having a bar on the 80th floor of a building to see the view? The windows are too narrow to really get a good look at the Beijing skyline. Worth a visit for the drinks, but go when it is quiet so you can wander around to see the views.
