Located in a decommissioned military factory, 798 Art Zone represents a Bauhaus-style hub for the city's thriving artistic community. Although initially frowned upon by the Communist government, the avant-garde movement flourished within this cheap and ample workshop space, which gradually started to attract visitors and bohemians to observe the modern artistic accomplishments. Inside, you can visit many repurposed facilities, including the photo gallery, an Italian and a French café, and a Sichuan restaurant, as well as space for press conferences, fashion shows, and exhibitions. You can always ask for guide service during your visit. Make 798 Art Zone part of your personalized Beijing itinerary using our Beijing trip planner.
