4 Jiuxianqiao Lu

This art bookstore’s owner, Robert Bernell, was one of the first people to set up shop in the 798 Art District, helping to make it the home of Chinese modern art it is today.

Crammed with glossy tomes, this is the place to come for books on contemporary art, architecture, photography and design, as well as books on the history of 798 itself.

An extension of the bookshop, Timezone 8 Editions, also serves as café, restaurant and exhibition space, where film screenings and author events occasionally take place. At the cafe, an ex-hotel chef whips up everything from sandwiches to set meals.
