B12 Jianguomenwai Dajie

The main attraction of Lan, a bar/club in LG Twin Towners, is the wild and eclectic interior by Philippe Starck. Renaissance-style paintings hang upside down from the ceilings; white sculptures of heads decorate one display case; novels line a shelf.

And the toilets: individual loos come with mirrored walls, silver armchair, and swan-shaped taps that make them look like a set from a David Lynch film.

Entertainment ranges from lounge acts singing soul covers to visiting DJs. The menu runs the gamut from raw oysters to Japanese sushi to fanciful Chinese fusion to basic Sichuanese. Several pages of the menu are devoted to Chinese delicacies like abalone, shark’s fin and fish maw.
