Métier’s Closer is the day-to-night briefcase of your dreams.

When searching for the hottest restaurant and lounge in Beijing, tell your cabdriver to take you to the glass-and-metal LG Twin Towers behemoth in the Chaoyang district. He may look surprised, but upon arrival just follow the nattily dressed Western expats up an elevator to the fourth floor.

Dinner is exemplary contemporary Chinese, and the people-watching is out of this world.
