Yin Bar

Located in The Emperor Hotel, this rooftop bar is said to have one of the most breathtaking views in the whole of Beijing. Obviously we didn't sit at the rooftop because it was too cold haha.

The Emperor's Dream: white wine, rice wine, lime, and sprite. I liked this drink the most because it tasted really sweet!

The Emperor's Memory: Chinese spirits, osmanthus, and lime juice.
