Visit in the evening!
Nov 2019
The mall is stunning in the evening because of the LED ceiling outside. It's great for taking pictures or even for just going for a stroll.

The mall itself has the usual shops and food options, as with many other malls in Beijing. It is on the bigger end of the spectrum of malls in the city, though, so you won't find yourself bored in this place. Most brands here are foreign/international (e.g. Muji, Zara, H&M, Victoria's Secret, Starbucks, etc. There are many local options for food together with a few international chains.

Just another shopping mall but the visual on the ceiling thingy is cool
Jan 2020
Yes, come at night time and experience the visuals above on the titantron thingy. Other than that, its really just another shopping mall. If shopping is your thing and you want to see a cool show, yes, come through here. If you are passing through the area, stop by. Other than that, I wouldn't say its a "must see" but sure, its cool.

PROS:
-Cool visuals
-Nice mall
-Near train stations
-Come at night

CONS:
-Just another shopping mall
-Not a place I would say is a "must see" or to go out of your way to see if you are visiting Beijing

Went during the day but should have gone at night
Dec 2019
The shopping is okay there, according to my wife as I just basically accompany her. We ate and had coffee but we went during the day. Based on the reviews, we are supposed to go there at night as the entire roof venue gets all lit up. It was a cold December day but inside it was actually too warm so dress in layers if you go during the winter.

Best to visit in the evening
Sep 2019
After visiting Beijing Parkview Green mall, I came here mainly to experience the evening atmosphere. At the entrance is a nice water fountain, enhanced by the nearby lightings. There were many locals and tourists gathering at the central outdoor area, flanked by 2 shopping buildings, enjoying the huge overhead screen displays. Suggest you visit both the Beijing Parkview Green & The Place during the evening.

Different architecture from traditional. Modern western Brand flank the buildings on the left & right. In between, a huge and I mean huge screen lines the roof of the passage way separating the 2 buildings. Different themes are displayed but this round it’s about flowers blossoming.
Lots of good restaurants to select within the area. Spoilt for Choice - oriental & western.
There’s a good mi shop with a wide range of electronic goods. Prices are reasonably good and an interesting shop to drop by.
Overall, nice place to walk around & have a meal . Head down the silk store which is down the road for more shopping.
Worth the visit when near the vicinity.

Evening walk at the Place
Sep 2019 • Solo
Small shopping mall, but lots to see. Had dinner here on a Saturday evening, the place looks much better at night when everything is lit up! There many international shops and places to eat. Overall quite a small mall though, but it’s pretty. It’s a bit of a walk from the nearest metro stop, there is much else around it!

Good food Court

Good stores, not far from the Subway station, excellent cafes.

Try egg waffles, japanese food, Mongolian yogurt or the classic Peking Roast Duck, everything in the same shopping mall in Beijing.

I went here only because I was looking for a specific shop that wasn't here. The address was wrong on the web but I meandered around here. What the heck. This is basically your mall in the US. Has multiple floors in two towers and a basement. Coffee, ice cream, clothes, shoes etc...not for me, but while there I had Haagen Dazs macadamia nut ice cream....couldn't resist.

We walked quite a distance, more than 20 mins after exiting Dongdaqiao station. While it is a rather straight road there’s really nothing much of interest to see along the way. We reached early about 6pm so LED screen not ON yet. Went for dinner at The Herbal cafe (see separate Review also J), and returned about 7:30pm. By then the surrounding has darken and most eyes were on the super large screen, overhead. It was ocean-themed as we took photos and videos, definitely Instagram-able, haha! The lighting display is simply breath-taking, a really mega visual treat. Given the scale of the screen and the projections....it's worth the trip here by itself.
About “The Place”; lots of eateries and restaurants, the more expensive at the various levels but some good ones also at basement. The central outdoor area, with the large screen overhead is flanked by 2 shopping Malls at the side. The mall has Zara and MAC flagship and will definitely keep one busy shopping for a while…
We stayed for about 30 mins and left. Definitely recommended to drop by if you are nearby
