A great spot if you're after a gay night life in Ximending, the vibe is cool and the red house itself is a cool place to be in, you can find numerous gift ideas and souvenirs

There was so much here that I wanted to buy. Lovely clothing, bags, jewellery, stationery and lots more. I spent a very pleasant hour wandering among the stalls and bought several unique items. Nice cafe inside, too.

The Ximen Red House has many interesting and unique products designed by the local designers. Some of these products are really creative and this place is highly recommended if you are nearby.

Popular place for visitors. Antique building with well preserved exterior and whole new beautiful interior. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Nice building with nice pop up stores in it and a few gay sex shops and bars around it, but if that's not your cup of tea, they are easy not to see.
