From wunderkind chef Max Levy of Bei comes the cocktail bar Apothecary with concoctions to treat all of your ills. Discreetly located on the third floor of the Nali Patio, the bar boasts a blonde wood, candlelit interior that screams sophistication. There are over 50 American-style drinks such as a Tom Collins or an Old Fashioned which are made using homebrewed elixirs by well-known Beijing mixologist Leon Lee. Try self-medicating with a Sazerac 1838 – brandy, Peychaud’s Bitters, absinthe and a hint of lemon. Apothecary’s bartenders have all been trained in Japanese-style cocktail making, which ensures expert shaking and stirring. The bar also makes its own ginger beer, which is perfect for washing down its menu of Cajun and Creole finger food from Levy’s native New Orleans – the home-cured bacon is sublime. Apothecary is the prescription of choice for Beijingers who are serious about their cocktails and their food.
