Smashing good time in Beijing’s anger room

Ever wanted to vent out your anger by smashing something but was prohibited from doing so? Now you can in Beijing’s anger room. Equipped with bats and hammer, Chinese in the capital are letting out their frustration, anger and stress at the city’s first anger room by smashing objects, ranging from old appliances to glass bottles. Founded by Jin Meng and her friends four months ago, the anger room named ‘SMASH’ are breaking 15,000 bottles a month as people to let out their pent up emotions.Jin, a 25-year-old former English-study student who quit a public relations company to start this, said the shop has close links with various second-hand shops to make sure there is an endless supply of broken objects such as TV, telephone, clocks, rice cooker, sound recorder, mannequins and speakers etc.Well exceeding Jin’s expectations, around 600 customers visit the shop every month, which is at a former factory area now converted into an art zone. Targeting people between ages 20 to 35, Jin said the space is not a place to promote violence, but to reduce people’s stress in large cities like Beijing, where people are under mounting pressure.
