  • Located in the West Gate of Taipei City, the West Gate is a beautiful building, a scenic spot that can not be missed in the West Gate, and the pedestrian area in the vicinity of the building is also a popular scene.

  • Evening, laoximen station exit 1 toward the close. Construction in the appearance of a red-brick we saw around the fence, could see only the top of. It is too bad.

  • The facade was under construction so they have a drape over the front of the building with a "fake" Red House image over it. It would've been nice to see this iconic building. The inside has a lot of cute and unique boutiques. You can definitely find something there for yourself or as a souvenir.
  • Good place to have a drink. Was overcharged/short changed for one of my drinks. So pay attention to the price and change.
  • Excellent fun, many different bars for different interests, and plenty of fresh air (come early for drink specials at many bars)
  • The time we visited this place, it was under renovation. So we did not appreciate the place thought it have some shops outside. Some local hand made products. The other side of this building, they have a bunch of gay bars and some gays shops...
  • An old, historic movie theater rejuvenated with modem touch. Good place to hang out for old guys and young.
