Over the past year, Indigo Mall has become an increasingly popular hang out, especially for food. Restaurant options are ample and decent in the mall, but who doesn’t love more choices? A little dwarfed by Indigo, restaurants in the nearby East Hotel (also part of Swire Properties) as well offer generous promotions for casual dining out.

As a Wangjing dweller, I am a frequent diner at both locations. After tipping off friends here and there, I decided to put this listing together. If I’ve missed any of your favorites, help me out and leave a comment.
On Mondays, if the Sanlitun location is too crowded, the popular two-for-one Blue Frog burger deal is also available at Indigo. If you are not in the mood for burgers, walk to the neighboring East hotel’s bar and restaurant Xian for buy one get one free selected drinks and pizzas (daily, 5-8pm).
On Tuesdays, head to Flamme on the third floor of Indigo for its two-for-one steak. If you can fit in desert, pick up some cupcakes or pies (RMB 6-20) at half price (after 7pm, daily) from T Republic on the first floor.
In the middle of the week, treat yourself a nicer after-work dinner on Wednesday at East hotel’s Feast restaurant on the second floor. A two-course menu (daily, RMB 168, 5.30-10.30pm) comes with a glass of wine or soft drink. Before you go home, drop by Domain on the same floor to get some two-for-one cakes (daily, 6pm until sold out).
And what better way to start your weekend than with a glass of champers? Xian offers buy one get one free on Moet Chandon Champagne bottles (RMB 750) and glasses (RMB 120) every Friday night.
