Time for wine? We certainly think so, which is why when in Beijing we head to new-kid-on-the-block Modo, a sleek, sophisticated watering hole dedicated to the stuff. Found at 19 Sanlitun Road in Chaoyang, discerning oenophiles can order 16 varieties by the glass, thanks to an Enomatic dispenser that keeps open bottles fresh and fabulous. There’s a mouthwatering menu of small plates to soak up the booze too. In the Modo bar, Everything is served up in the kind of dramatic surroundings that wouldn’t look out of place in a glossy design mag. In short: Hg2‘s kinda place.
