EQUIS, Beijing’s highly anticipated new venue, opens in the heart of the capital’s most dynamic business and residential neighbourhoods – the Liangmaqiao area of the Central Business District in north-eastern Chaoyang. The exclusive new venue, which is ideally situated adjacent to the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel Beijing, comprises five distinct but connected outlets spread over more than 38,750 square feet, in a spacious yet intimate layout that evokes Beijing’s famed hutongs of years past.
EQUIS’ interiors honor ancient, timeless Beijing traditions while also celebrating the best of modern China and the world, with dramatic spaces and eclectic vibes created through the carefully selected materials including woven metal, antique timber, and the distinct use of glass cubes and mirrors, fireplaces, pieces of genuine Chinese porcelain, antique Chinese bricks and roof tiles. Contemporary art installations further create an atmosphere designed to awe and inspire through a multi-sensory experience.
A beautiful assembly of discrete enclaves, the venue features five unique experiences. THE LOUNGE, the high-energy, buzzing heart of the venue with live music and performances; THE CELLAR that features a central fireplace and a dramatic seafood counter; THE LIBRARY, a quiet haven for handcrafted cocktails, intimate evenings and a spacious private terrace with hand-rolled Cuban cigars and rare, artisanal spirits; THE COURTYARD, an open-air garden that evokes the central courtyards of ancient hutongs; THE IMPERIAL ROOM, an exclusive venue with its own private and ultra-luxurious lounge, a dedicated outdoor terrace and private party rooms for entertaining and other hosting.
In each of the five unique settings, guests can enjoy food that is perfectly paired to their drinks and the moment, from a selection of fresh seafood including farmed beluga caviar, French oysters, Boston lobster, Japanese ahi tuna, or a selection of Spanish Iberico ham, cured Atlantic salmon, Beijing-style delicacies, fondue and chocolate. They can also enjoy meticulously handcrafted cocktails and artfully curated spirits, wines and beers that celebrate fine drinking in the historic city of Beijing.
EQUIS offers a number of exclusive membership programs on a tiered system that include privileges at the adjacent Four Seasons Hotel Beijing, as well as an array of enviable benefits and services such as a dedicated butler concierge service, access to the private spaces at EQUIS, and much more.
