I finally made it to The Bookworm and I’m thinking, where have you been all my life (in Beijing)! It is a bookshop, library, bar, restaurant and events space, and you’ll find it in Beijing, Suzhou and Chengdu.
It is super spacious, quiet- I mean no teenagers babbling, but latin lounge music is loud enough in some parts of the place.
Excellent location right across the Sanlitun Village and it’s a short walk from the Tuanjiehu (line 10) station.
You’ll find good internet, comfortable seating for your taste- comfy armchairs, tall bar stools, even spots for working standing up. You’ll find lots of books and even a piano if you wish to take a break from working.
Slightly on the downside – although their menu will satisfy your craving for western food, it’s on the pricier side, with breakfast 40-90RMB, 50-70 RMB sandwiches and salads.
