Punk Bar at The Opposite House

Punk Bar at The Opposite House

Punk Bar is a night bar and club located in Beijing, China. To contrast the opposing solid private dining rooms, the Punk Bar is a solitary transparent box seemingly sunken (as the private dining rooms are raised)/ Wooden benches hug the walls, enveloping the space and a DJ booth, while modular tables are scattered throughout and become the bar counter. Four wooden columns of shelves rise behind the counter and, with the lights turned low, guests can experience what is truly “punk” about the space.
