Baijiu Bar & Distillery

Baijiu Bar

Capital Spirits is the world’s first bar dedicated to Baijiu and craft liquor. Come taste baijiu by the glass and discover the distinctive hand-picked stock of Baijiu, craft Chinese beers, lesser known fine spirits from around the world, and specialty baijiu cocktails by an award winning Beijing bartender / Mixologist.  We’re proud to be featured in NY Times 36 Hours in Beijing, Conde Nast Traveler’s A Guide to Beijing’s Hutongs and Winner of Time Out Beijing’s 2014 Spirits Specialist Bar.

Nestled within an historic hutong in a restored shop house designed by international Greek architect Anna Pipilis, Capital Spirits features period furnishings for a relaxing environment with a taste of Old Beijing.

Still not convinced about baijiu? Let Capital Spirits’ expert staff passionately take you on a journey of baijiu flights and finally discover the real spirit of China.

WE’VE MOVED!!!

LOCATION: 辛寺胡同16号 (XinSi Hutong #16)

The Distillery

The Distillery by Capital Spirits is Beijing’s first bar and craft distillery. With its new custom built state of the art 100L copper fitted column still distillator, The Distillery is creating small batches of house distilled spirits such as London Dry style gins, vodkas, fruit based schnapps, and rums.

Our goal is to celebrate the heritage of Western spirit distillation with a Chinese twist. With our larger distillator and expanded space we are creating craft liquors using unique ingredients native to China and offering our products [as demonstration purposes] to our customers. As with the original Capital Spirits Baijiu Bar, The Distillery continues to offer the same tasting room concept with an expanded menu of liquor flights. Customers at The Distillery can learn, taste and discover flights of unique craft spirits of rum, gin and vodka from around the world.

Enjoy our house distilled spirits as well as classic cocktails such as Manhattans, Side Cars, Gin & Tonics, Tom Collins, Old Fashioned, and Martinis can be made with a variety of different gins, vodkas, rums and whiskeys from around the world. We stock a growing collection of over a dozen gins, as well as one of Beijing’s best bourbon selections. All spirits also available in 15ml tasting pours served in professional “tulip” glasses besides in full servings or in cocktails. Tasting pours are 15-30RMB each to try some of the world’s best spirits. We also feature draft beer from Arrow Factory Brewery and Slow Boat.
