Chuàng Kù (The Loft)

Lonely Planet review

West of downtown in a disused factory area known as Chuàng Kù (创库艺术主题社区; ) are a small number of galleries and cafes featuring modern Chinese artists and photographers. Yuánshēng Art Space is a gallery-bar-restaurant-theatre focusing on the province’s ethnic groups. The cornerstone of sorts is TCG Nordica , best described as a gallery-exhibition hall-cultural centre – with, oddly, a restaurant serving Scandinavian and Chinese food. The English- speaking folks who run the exhibit have even started running trips to Miao minority villages. Not many taxi drivers know this place as The Loft; ask to go to 101 Xiba Lu.
