1933 Old Millfun, Shanghai
(4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
A raw concrete modernist structure, 1933 Old Millfun once operated as Shanghai’s cattle slaughterhouse, now serving as an industrial park space. Surrounded by roads and water, this five-story art deco building with a brutalist feel was designed by a British architect in 1933. Feel a chill run down your spine as you examine the building's huge gutters and bridges, which were used to transport the unfortunate animals across large halls and maze-like spiral galleries. Transformed into an exhibition space, the building now hosts fashion shows, concerts, and press conferences, and is also used as a conference hall. Make 1933 Old Millfun a centerpiece of your Shanghai vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shanghai vacation generator.

  • 人很少 也比較小 很清靜 有狗狗咖啡館 有買飾品的 不太多店舖 主要是咖啡館 也有一個餐廳 好像還有酒吧不過下午沒開門 挺清淨的 也沒有太多亂七八糟的東西賣 
  • Today, the old slaughterhouse of SH is a Centre for exhibitions. It has a few restaurants and bars. Was the selection not particularly great. The architecture is really once and atmosphere somewhat bizarre. Walking the stairs up like pigs earlier. The majority are locked and inaccessible. Whether it's always like I can't tell. In the neighborhood, it has a few more Art Deco houses and a new district with shops and restaurant is the result. Unfortunately very artificial similar to Xintiandi

  • 一个无聊的周末来了这里,很感慨这坚固怪异外方内圆的建筑。作为一个……屠宰场也许很实用,想到即将被宰杀的牛们,似乎觉得这里有点阴森,更似乎闻到当年的血腥味儿,虽然不是素食者,但还是觉得有点恐怖,尤其看到地面被牛蹄子踩踏磨光的斜坡路面。这么多年后这奇异的建筑没有更多的故事,也不被商家看好,显得有些冷清。所以觉得有些鸡肋。
