  • Recently renovated (one year ago?) Now inside is a photography exhibition and a market with many small, elegant designer brands from Taiwan, i.e. The kind of souvenirs you'd want to bring back if you are looking for more than plasticity gadgets. Really great, and location as well, in a very lively neighbourhood (including bar terraces nearby).
  • Taipei city and most probably Taiwan's only LGBT friendly area. With a wide variety of Gay bars, restaurants and clothing stores. If you go the the second level above the restaurants you will get a bit of a naughty selection of shops and can also get sex health consultation and HIV screening. The theater right next to it usually on the weekend have arts and crafts stalls and some interesting art exhibitions and shows to select from just make sure what is the language cos it is majority of the time Chinese.
  • Taipei's major LGBT gathering & family weekend stalking around for art & craft designs. Red building itself have lot history to Taipei. Around area is very good for young generation sub-culture shopping ideas. Further towards river are which is old Taipei city based. It's worth to talk walk enjoy shopping and culture at same time.
  • Artsy, creative, open, transformation, youthful, new era, classic, free... Great place to get inspired and widen your horizon of the world through this place.
  • Friendly bar tenders. Lots of sweet cocktails, which isnt my thing, but when they made me a drink that was sub par, it was on the house! Really nice guys!
