In 2001, the Taipei City Government named the tobacco factory the city’s 99th historic site and converted it into a park comprising city-designated historic sites (namely the office building, the 1st to 5th warehouses, cigarette plant and boiler room), historic structures (the inspection room, a machinery repair shed and a nursing room) and architectural highlights (the Baroque-style garden, an ecologically landscaped pond, a public bath and a multi-purpose auditorium). For more efficient reuse of space, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park was built on the historic site as a production base for designers and cultural & creative businesses, as well as a venue for performances and exhibitions. The park introduced to its premises a Taiwan Design Museum and TMSK through partnerships with the Taiwan Design Center and prestigious Taiwanese glasswork label LIULI GONG FANG, respectively, besides a snack bar that was converted from the machinery repair shed.

A wonderful discoveryThis old tobacco factory housed a few unique gift shops and a Taiwan Fashion Show when we stopped by. There was also a graphics exhibit. The fashion creators were setting up their booths the day we went do they weren’t ready for sales. Lots of potential in this place. Fun to hang out there.

Musicians were perfectWe walked from our hotel and after visiting the Sun Yat Sen Memorial. I was starving 5 hrs after breakfast and disappointed to find the cafe where the French glass works (gorgeous works at hefty prices) was small with not much to eat or inside seating. We walked out and bathed in the beauty of the pond and greenery while tripping on the holes of broken wooden floor planks before we found ourselves at this large converted coffee factory full of artsy enterprises. It reminded me of a software, computer engineering think tank. We found Cafe Sole and I had a cup of delicious chocolate mocha $6. Hubby savored a warmed choc brownie that tasted like a molten chocolate in the shape of a cupcake with his cup of Americano. We didn’t expire any of the tiny storefronts inside but found outside stalls of vendors hawking self made items. The best part for me was to sit and listen to a violinist and guitarist playing duets. I could’ve sat there all day in the plaza listening and watching the 2 of them. They were really good playing popular, international and classics. Then we wandered into the nearby hotel and visited floors of Taiwan items, clothing, a glass factory, leather and jewelry making classes, a ton of tea cafes, massive bookstore and a lower level of food places. One udon place had a window to watch the noodle chef making the noodles served at the restaurant.

Nice place for hangout and see somes exhibitionsThe place is huge and offer many exhibitions to go around. Also having many free chair and table to sit down and relax in the shadow. The exhibitions are various and depend on the date you visit. Worth a visit to discover around. Also nearby there are many cafe and vintage boutiques
Unexpectedly amazing spotWe didn’t know what a “creative park” was so our expectations weren’t super high. But as we walked through this building - a restored tobacco factory with lush gardens, fountains and courtyards- we were amazed. It hosts several unions and organizations dedicated to the arts, some of whom open their spaces to peek into little exhibits. It has a couple coffee/beer shops (and you can walk the grounds with a nice Taiwan microbrew). It has several little marketplaces with cool local design products. Our 20 minute plan visit turned into a couple hours as we explored the spot. A great thing to do if you have a couple days in Taipei.
Culture, Relax & FoodAre you able to understand creativity? are you tired of walking in the city? do you like different cuisines? So this amazing place can be a very nice and good surprise. After three days walking around we found it in our last day. Dam!!!! Its a huge, cultural and creativity Hub together with a modern sense of satisfying the consumer. You can see how it is done. How to promote, sell, discuss, improve and if you are starving you can seat , eat and appreciate. To go back again
