These Chinese dining experiences range from converted prison restaurants to artisanal baiju bars that introduce the nation's drink of choice to tourists with an appreciation for authenticity. China is not only a budding economic center but is also a mecca for experiential dining.

The nation's food experiences are not only limited to sensory restaurant spaces and sky-high lounges but also include personal chef apps that connect food lovers with a premium meal of their liking. These Chinese dining experiences will appeal to foodies with an appreciation for gourmet and traditional cuisine along with those with an affinity for themed restaurant concepts.

While the North American themed restaurant might consist of a dinner and a show, China's cell-situated prison restaurants and surrealist art bars leave a more dynamic and lasting impression on its visitors.
