EQUIS, Beijing’s newest and most glamorous social lounge opens today with a star-studded fashion soiree, where the elite of the city are gathering to mark the unveiling of the capital’s most highly anticipated new venue.
Designed as a luxurious, contemporary reinterpretation of the ancient tea houses and imperial courts that have formed the heart of Beijing society for thousands of years, EQUIS aims to set new standards of sophistication and style for the capital’s burgeoning social scene.
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 3,600 square metres (38,750 square feet), in a spacious yet intimate layout that evokes Beijing’s famed hutongs of years past.
In Latin, EQUIS means “X” and implies the very centre of everything. The pinnacle of the capital’s rise to prominence as a global lifestyle hub, EQUIS combines international influences with the highest service and entertainment standards to create the perfect setting for memorable celebrations, fine dining and drinking in style.
“We are excited to present EQUIS to the city of Beijing,” said Tehau Lejeune, Club Director, EQUIS. “Our goal was to create an exciting, high quality new venue for the social elite and to break new ground in sophisticated urban lifestyle. We believe we have created a place that is truly fresh, innovative and best-in-class for nightlife, dining and entertainment in the capital.”
EQUIS’ striking interiors pays homage to 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 is the high-energy, buzzing heart of the venue where live music and performances are the highlight, and colourful craft cocktails, premium spirits, table service and delicious small plates entice guests. THE CELLAR on the east corner of EQUIS comes complete with a central fireplace and a dramatic seafood counter. Guests will find the perfect setting to savour the finest wines and champagnes paired with fresh belon oysters, fruits de mer and personalised services led by the Head Sommelier.
