The Zeta Bar quickly became the neighborhood bar of the well-to-do and foreign executives. With branches in London, Bangkok, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, the brightly colored Zeta Bar Beijing picks up on the local culture with huge, Chinese-inspired metallic birdcages dangling above the bar. The high ceilings, illuminated bar and bar stools attract the capital’s bright young things like moths to a flame. Cocktails are pricey with an emphasis on vodka and champagne creations but the Wasabi Martini is worth the kick. There is also an assortment of Asian, Indian and Continental nibbles available that you can pair with an extensive wine list. Zeta Bar has a rotating roster of top international DJs and live acts such as DJ Ngelik and DJ Joey Negro (with a cover charge to match the talent). High rollers prefer the private mezzanine overlooking the small dance floor.
