Its a nice building but there's nothing impressive inside just some vintage printers i guess...looks like a museum. Small cafe inside...didn't go to the second floor so maybe there's something worth seeing there.

Nothing much to see in the Red House, its near Ximen station hence have a look. Exterior is probably the only catch. Photo-worthy.

Nothing special today but it could be a very important and special building in the past. Do not go there if is too troublesome. It is not worthwhile to do it.

We didn't check the area out during the day, but multiple sites on Google identified it as a great gay hangout at night. So we went! And they weren't wrong! Easy to get to by cab or by metro. One long row gay bar after gay bar with a couple lesbian bars in between. On our first night, we hung... More

During the trip I visited, only the ground is open. Only a small café and some historical paper cuttings and articles were on display on this floor. Not sure what they are doing upstairs. Outside the Red House, there are a number of stalls selling various products

This is a tiny historical building inside of which is essentially a small museum of what's happening to the most vibrant spot of the Capital city. There is a reasonable coffee and tea shop at 1F where we take a break from a long walk. Furniture pieces are of antique scene. Alan (8) likes it.

In the Ximen Red House its related to cinema i guess or a theater where people used to go there to watch opera or etc. If i remember clearly😊 If You Love History , I strongly recommend that you should come here ! Its just a walking distance away from Ximen Station 😌😌

The famous Ximen ding, you won't miss this building. The surrounding of this building are all shops - from phone accessories to food. you can see lots of tourist here and they come in bulk. Easy to get around and easy to call for taxi to other place.

A small place converted from an old cinema. Now filled with small shops selling young designers' products from fashion to household products and decorations. Worth spending an hour for a brief walk.
