We are very excited to introduce our first % Arabica Hutong store in central Beijing! Located on a Hutong, which is a type of narrow street or alley commonly associated with northern Chinese cities, especially Beijing. They have great historical significance and are designated as protected by the government in an attempt to preserve this aspect of Chinese cultural history.
Our store hides in the M Woods Museum of Qianliang Hutong, an independent, non-profit art museum founded in 2014 by collectors Lin Han and Wanwan Lei. The building was renovated by architect Shuhei Aoyama, and this % Arabica store itself was also designed by Aoyama-San. The entire style of this store is a fusion of classical Chinese culture, some modern industrial elements and our typical timeless, minimalist approach. You are most welcome to enjoy an % Arabica coffee with us before walking through the galleries and the surrounding avenues of this enchanting part of the city ***
