29 Rooms by Refinery 29 x Mel Bae


Three years ago Refinery 29 celebrated its 10th anniversary with the creation of 29Rooms and since then it’s been an annual tradition for me to visit the AMAZING art installation! I’ve been getting so many questions about it and I’m finally giving you guys all the tea!

So basically let me sum up what 29rooms actually is, it’s legit 29 rooms… of instagramable greatness, that you can only access for a limited time. The rise of pop up museums has been real these past few years but Refinery 29 is taking the lead with this one right here. Installations that you see this year will most likely not be back the next so they keep visitors returning every year to see what’s new and of course take more pictures!

What I personally love about 29rooms is that not only do you leave with a bunch of cool Instagram pictures (I know, i know that’s what you guys care about) BUT you will emotionally connect with the art as well. Several of the rooms promote self care, equality, take a stance political issues & push the motive of voting plus more. Basically what I’m saying it’s empowering af.

If you haven’t noticed by my pictures clearly my personal favorite room was:

A Long Line Of Queendom

Which was an installation purely dedicated to black women! It was beautiful, golden and just exudes Black Girl Magic. It was so cool to see that Refinery 29 had a room dedicated to being Black AF. Inside you can find inspiring quotes, shoutouts of black women who helped sculpt the culture and a long gold silky. I’m telling you guys, it was pure greatness.

I forgot to mention that you can even leave with some free goodies! With sponsors and partnerships with brands such as Bai, Dr.Jart+, Aldo, Rebook, Adidas and more, I was pleasantly surprised to get gifted with a couple of things to test out the brands! I mean who doesn’t like free goodies?

Located on 588 Baltic Street in Brooklyn… Do I highly suggest yall to visit? F*ck Yes!!
