The group most likely to be represented at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing’s Cai Yi Xuan are the ubiquitous Chinese businessmen, gathering for working lunches with plenty of toasts — often of baijiu, “white alcohol,” a local spirit made from sorghum with somewhat of an acquired taste. That said, in the evening, such folks are more likely to be holed up in the ostentatiously attired private rooms for long, late dinners, where the no-smoking regulations are more relaxed. This can leave the main public dining room rather quiet, although smoke-free, thankfully. During that time, you’ll see that Beijing restaurant is popular with hotel guests, too.
