Summer Internship in Beijing

I'm trying to get a summer internship at a boutique IB in Beijing. There are quite a few of these shops and I have a list drawn up already. The problem is that I don't know whether to email/call the MD straight up to ask for a job, or to ask him out for a coffee or an informational interview, and then ask him if he has any openings in person.

What do you guys think?
