Only in Beijing...
Do as the locals do
Celebrated interior designer Lea Chen shares three of her favourite spots in Beijing.
“My favourite gallery is White Space in Caochangdi, an art village on the edge of Beijing. The exhibitions are always thought-provoking, and the proprietor is a great friend of mine.”
“For late nights, I head to Apollo, a cool new bar-restaurant in Sanlitun. The concept is like a Japanese vinyl bar, with a live DJ playing old soul and funk records. The lobster sandwich is also excellent!”
House of Wang
“House of Wang is one of my go-to Beijing stores, with a wonderful hutong location. It’s a luxury design showroom filled with contemporary brands, set in a beautifully designed traditional Chinese courtyard.”
