Old US consulate comes to lifeSPOT Taipei is a very popuar place to hang out for TaIpei's intelligencia. It has great cafes and films to watch. It was constructed in the Japanese colonial period (1895-1945) in the style of a southern US antebellum mansion. It acted as both a US consulate and after as the US ambassador's residence. This role ceased when the US recognised Beijing in 1979.

Spot cafeSerene and elegant place. Lovely to be alone and enjoy the sun light through the trees! After the dessert. Don't forget to visit the shop. I found some beautiful book covers there
Antebellum mansion has a colourful pastSPOT Taipei resembles a pre-civil war Southern mansion., It's been a US consulate and a residence for a number of US ambassadors . Now it's a film house, showing art house movies which may not be seen otherwise in Taipei.

Art house filmsThis historic former residence of the American consulate turned art house cinema screens art house films. There are a small shop and a cafe plus some exhibition area upstairs. The cinema auditorium has been renovated but facilities are not as good as those in more modern venues. The Huashan branch of Spot is newer and has 2 auditorium with better facilities. I usually go when there are films of interest to me which are not screened elsewhere in Taipei.
Uncle Sam's base now a movie theatreSPOT-Taipei was opened in 1926 when Japan ruled Taiwan and served as the US consulate for many years. It is a handsome building. It was saved from the wreckers by a coalition of civic activists who did not wish to see this historic building vanish. Among them was Curtis Smith, a Canadian expatriate with an interest in conservation. SPOT-Taipei shows art house films that commercial theatres ignore. It also has a cafe.
