Handel Lee is a Chinese lawyer boasting a respected family tree. His descendants from his mother were in the service of the Qing family dynasty, who ruled China from 1644 to 1911. Lee owns the "House of Three" and is co-chairman of the "Three on the Bund" partnership, which includes fashion boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and a jazz club. In Beijing, he owns "The Courtyard", an exclusive restaurant that is home to the cigar smokers club, and a contemporary art gallery. Lee hopes to purchase the former American embassy, located next to Tiananmen Square, to develop a complex housing restaurants, nightclubs, and luxury shops.
