About
POP-UP BEIJING is an award-winning homeware, antiques, furnishing and interiors design and lifestyle store, located in the burgeoning heart of South Sanlitun - the perfect sanctuary from the hustle-and-bustle of the city, where East meets West. Featuring a cosy wine bar, with a finely curated wine list, and an active programme of workshops, events and film screenings - POP-UP BEIJING is designed as a fluid and ever-changing space, full of art, treasures and discoveries. POP-UP BEIJING is also proud to be winner of 'Best Boutique Store' in That's Beijing magazine's '2015 Best of Beijing Awards’ and ‘Lifestyle Awards 2016,’ as well as 'Best Shop/Boutique 2015' and ‘Outstanding Shop/Boutique 2016’ in City Weekend magazine's 'Readers' Choice Awards.’ The adjoining west wing gallery brings a contemporary dimension to POP-UP BEIJING, acting as a counter-balance to the eclectic, cluttered, retro and vintage feel of our main showroom. The broad industrial white space acts as a blank canvas for an infinite array of possibilities - converging modern art with vintage and antique style. More than just a gallery - it hosts a wide range of events, workshops and artist installations. From contemporary film screenings, to wine tastings, charity events and private functions - it has a mercurial nature that adapts to the needs of the creative spirits that it invites. From a lifestyle and design perspective, POP-UP BEIJING curates an evolving and eclectic collection one-off pieces, ranging from custom-made furniture, locally made jewellery and giftware, hand-crafted ceramics, Chinese rustic and heritage antiques; and antiques and vintage pieces imported directly from Belgium, France and Holland. Our art collection includes original hand-painted propaganda works from North Korea, contemporary Chinese art, Thankas from Tibet, vintage maps of Beijing and China, and original artworks and prints from around the world. Come and join us at POP-UP BEIJING for a coffee or a wine, and a fun voyage of discovery…

When I passed by Pop-Up Beijing, I wasn't quite sure what was inside, til I decided to enter. I was greeted by a very nice lady. She told me that I could just look around, take pictures, and just call her if I needed any assistance. The place has amazing antique pieces (furnitures, paintings, chandeliers, lamps, etc.). On the ground floor, they have more antiques, and also, you can stay for wine (for 60RMB ++ a glass). I just bought a refrigerator magnet for 30RMB. The very nice lady & the guy he was with knows a little English. They also offered me to sit down for a while, enjoy their wifi & asked if I wanted a cup of water or tea, for free! We made small talk about the very windy weather while I was drinking tea.

This unique little store has interesting design and art pieces. Lots of items with Chinese design elements, some antique, some more contemporary. The owner, Glen, is really knowledgable and can offer advice and maybe even a story about a particular item. Attached is a small wine bar, well-stocked - ask staff for a recommendation. They also regularly host events - look them up to see what's on among film screenings, markets and more.

This is the place in Beijing to pick up unique gifts for your friends and family as the owners do an amazing job of curating restored antiques with trinkets made by local designers. Everyone at the shop is super pleasant and helpful, and they have a well-stocked wine bar for taking a shopping break. I live in the area and really love going to their activities throughout the week, like movie nights and art classes, and it's difficult to not want to buy the whole store. They recently added an art gallery space featuring local artists as well, so it's worth stopping in just for that!

Every item in this store has a story and the staff is always glad to help and tell it.
Lots of products from local artists can be found here.
There is also an extra big space that functions as gallery with original artwork for sale and as a place to hold workshops.
The location is super convenient, right in the middle of Sanlitun with a lot of superb eateries in the neighborhood.
The shop is located very close to the Tuanjiehu Subway Station.

POP UP BEIJING is very well curated. The place changes everytime I go there and always looks fabulous. It's the perfect place to find souvenirs or other treasures to brighten up your home interior. They carry many products of local designers, Chinese and European antiques, original artwork, antique furniture and much more. There is also a bar with an amazing selection of wines where you can relax. The staff is super friendly and helpful. POP UP also hosts events and workshops that are worth checking out

We have been to Pop-UP several times in the past weeks, having only discovered this place quite recently. What a gem!
The shop has fabulous stuff for sale, ranging from massive antique pieces down to Beijing-themed greeting cards. Not cheap, but value for money.
Down a few steps is the bar/restaurant/coffeeshop/lounge - whatever you want it to be. Great selection of very well priced wines; delicious nibbles, freshly made poor-over coffee. And the place turns into a cinema, or a hat-making workshop or a sketching class, depending on the time and day. (They have a website for details).
It is our new favourite alternative home in Beijing!
Check it out - you won't be disappointed.

To call Pop-Up a "shop" would be such an injustice and very under-rated! It is chock full of beautifully restored vintage items, high-quality replicates and locally made jewelry. Everything is carefully and loving selected. Don't overlook the gorgeous little wine bar with an excellent selection of wines and artisanal coffee, or the many activities that Pop-Up holds on a weekly basis, like Vintage Movie Night and "Sip n Scribble" drawing classes. Wonderfully warm, inclusive and endlessly creative. They also do private events: I did a Thanksgiving Dinner there and it was amazing, from the food and wine pairings to each detail on the table decorations.

This wonderful place mixes gorgeous authentic Chinese interiors, jewelry and art with a well tasted and thought out wine list, and indigenous coffee that gives back to its origins.
A place for gathering, learning crafts, watching old films on a Tuesday night with knowledgable, attentive, delightful staff. If you cant find enjoyment in this joint you have probably had your eyes wide shut!

A visit always ensures new items on display. A great "Flea" market last week. Staff are always very friendly and professional. Only item for improvement is it takes too long to get a coffee made.

Dear BeijingEye - thanks for your kind review, and your constructive feedback about our coffee! Because we use a very traditional 'pour-over' technique, it definitely takes longer than your average chain-coffee store, but we'll happily take your feedback on-board, and look for opportunities for improvement, without losing the unique quality of a good pour-over! Onto it! Thanks again, and we look forward to welcoming you back - the next Flea Market will be this month! Best, from myself and the whole POP-UP BEIJING family.
