Timezone 8

Cafe in Sanlitun & Chaoyang

Timezone 8's journey from art-book publishers to sushi cafe might well be a microcosm of 798's unbridled gentrification. Craft beer, maki and artisanal pizza have long since muscled out Warhol and co, but judging by the packed tables, nobody seems too bothered. The central location (directly opposite UCCA) makes it a natural hub for 798's artseekers.
