The Culture Trip

The website Culture Trip had some nice things to say about us. Click the above picture for the full story.

The Bookworm in Beijing is not just a bookshop, but one of the city’s major cultural hubs. Local and foreign culture lovers that crave to be surrounded by stacks of books while enjoying a cup of  coffee need look no further. The Bookworm includes a café-restaurant with a rare selection of whiskeys, and hosts a number of events such as movie screenings, comedy nights, lectures, literary festivals, and various poetry and writing workshops. It  has been named one of “The Best Bookshops in the World” by Lonely Planet.
