The Yu Mei Lounges are a place of connection for our community. We invite you to stop by one of our three Yu Mei Lounges to view our new collections, discover new art, or have a chat with one of our knowledgable curators.
Behind the brilliant white façade of a former metal foundry lies our Newmarket Yu Mei Lounge. Though, with its ambitious size and multiple entertaining options, it’s probably closer to a whole Yu Mei Residence.
Designed with Knight Associates, the space is delineated by three distinct zones. At the front is the reception area, where you’ll find our current season range. Through the glass double doors is the gallery space, featuring a shoppable archive of past season styles, and a display of artworks by some of our favourite contemporary artists. Past the gallery, you’ll find the salon - a lounge area equipped with a full kitchen and Mario Bellini Camaleonda sofa.
With its spacious and warm interiors, our Newmarket lounge is the ideal place to connect with our community and fellow Club Yu Mei members, through the likes of events, dinners and drinks. We invite you to visit our third lounge at 8 Kent Street, and stay a while. We hope it feels as familiar and comfortable as a home.
Before our Auckland Lounges in Newmarket and Commercial Bay, there was our Wellington Lounge: the original Yu Mei concept store. Located at 85 Victoria Street, in the heart of the historical Mibar building, our Wellington Lounge is a warm, welcoming haven in the heart of the city.
The centrepiece of the Lounge is a large Giotto marble island - below which sits a drinks fridge, ready to open at the push of a button. The goal is that each visitor feels relaxed enough to put their feet up and enjoy a drink, while choosing the best bag for their needs.
Working with Knights Associates, the space was designed with a commitment to high quality materials and enduring design. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Our Commercial Bay Lounge is situated in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, on the ground floor of the newly transformed Commercial Bay precinct. Like all our Lounges, we wanted to create a space that feels comfortable and inviting, while still embodying the same principles of timeless, reductive design that we champion in our leather goods.
Designed together with Buster Caldwell from the Wonder Group, this Lounge nods to the area’s history through the use of reclaimed materials from the original Commercial Bay. The space also features a collaboration with artist Tom Mackie, who crafted a walnut cabinet for our leather goods, as well as a rotating selection of contemporary art, in line with Yu Mei's principle of championing local artists and craftspeople.
We invite you to visit our Commercial Bay Lounge at shop 37, 7 Queen Street, Auckland CBD.
