Adam Tihany designs restaurant in Beijing’s first Mandarin Oriental

Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing is scheduled to open as the first Mandarin Oriental property in Beijing in early 2019.

The hotel takes its name from the Wangfujing district where it is located and will be connected to WF Central, Hongkong Land's retail destination with over 130 tenants, including 20 brands making their debut in Beijing or China as a whole.

The 73-room hotel will be located on the upper two floors of WF Central, with rooms that are a minimum of 55 square meters (592 square feet), many with views of the Forbidden City.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


The design will emphasize a residential style with a bright color palette, floor-to-ceiling windows and marble-tiled bathrooms.

Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing will have two restaurants and a rooftop bar, all with access to a garden terrace. These will include: Café Zi created by Michelin-starred Hong Kong chef Wong Wing-Keung, and MO Bar. Another restaurant, Mandarin Grill + Bar, will have interiors by Adam Tihany.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing will have four suites, as well as a glass-roofed pool.

The property will be located near the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the National Museum and the National Art Museum of China.
