Located within the China World Hotel, Aria Bar and Restaurant delivers stylish, modern European cuisines courtesy of Chef de Cuisine Nicholas Blair. With an extensive wine selection built to complement the menu, every meal is certain to be unique, and delightfully memorable.
We arrived early and sat at the bar where a pre-dinner drink went perfectly with the live jazz music. Famed for an evolving menu that embraces Mediterranean influences, almost every guest sing praises of the restaurant after a meal there. A must try is the Wagyu beef burger - absolutely delicious!
Aria's decor doesn't disappoint either. Its main dining room has a bright and relaxed atmosphere with little alcoves carved off by velvet curtains. You can also hear a band bringing in the crowds between 5.30 and 7pm.
The average expense for each person is between RMB 300 to RMB 10,000. Though a bit expensive for a restaurant in Beijing, it is still worth it. Its accolades include mentioning in "To Go List of Hottest Restaurants in the World" by Food & Wine magazine, and "One of the Top 10 Western Restaurants in China", in 21st Century Business Herald. All waiters there speak excellent English.
