Beijing summer can be gorgeously warm with perfect blue skies, or too hot and polluted to handle. That’s why we’ve rounded up three different locations with the best spritzers. Whether you want to sit on an idyllic hutong rooftop or a Sanlitun balcony, or be inside in the air-conditioning this summer, we’ve got your all spritzy needs covered.

Auto Studio (RMB 50)
From the somewhat secluded rooftop of this hair studio and art gallery you’ll be able to see as far as the Beixinqiao hutongs go, with a spritz in hand. We can’t think of a better way to take in Beijing summer. For something different, try their giant gin and tonics.

The Local (RMB 50)
With their new balcony there is now no better way to enjoy Sanlitun’s Courtyard 4 and to indulge in some people watching on Beijing’s balmy afternoons. Especially enjoyable in combination with the weekend’s brunch menu.

The Mixing House (RMB 70)
This recent Shuangjing addition makes for pleasant and quiet, air-conditioned drinking. The Aperol spritz is made well, with plenty of ice for an extra refreshing taste. Other innovative cocktails will keep you hanging around.
