Used to be a happening place but seemed to be on a slow and steady decline for over a year and a half. Bad sign when a place says "cash only". Even worse when they have a sign in the window saying they are no...More

Great attention given to the preparation of our drinks! The place has a very nice athmosphere for a late-night bar.

Apothecary is my favorite bar in Beijing. Their cocktails are unparalleled, especially their "death in the afternoon", modeled after Jake Barnes' drink in Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises". The food is spectacular. I've eaten there twice and both duck dishes have been phenomenal. The first...More

Service was incredibly slow, which is understandable on a busy night, not at 6:30pm on a Tuesday when there was only one other group in the bar. There also seemed to be a problem about my group sitting at two tables - again surprising given...More

Apothecary has by far the best cocktails in Beijing, they have a great selection and use quality ingredients. The bar staff really know their stuff, we were served by Luke who took such care and precision when preparing our drinks. It does take time to...More
