798 Dashanzi Gallery District, Beijing

4 Jiuxianqiao Lu
Chaoyang
Beijing
China
Concierge.com's insider take:

Beijing's burgeoning modern art scene buzzes around this Bauhaus-inspired neighborhood. Once a factory district that produced electronics for the military, it began to attract artists with its affordable warehouse space in the early 2000s; it's now a hipster hangout filled with galleries, cafés, and bars. Thirty-odd exhibit spaces host the work of Chinese artists, some of them famous; minimalist art star Ai Weiwei and political pop artist Wang Guangyi have both displayed their work here. Plan to spend an afternoon wandering through the galleries; three don't-miss spots are Star Gallery (2 Jiuxianqiao Lu; 86-10-8456-0591), Beijing Tokyo Art Project (86-10-8457-3245; www.tokyo-gallery.com; closed Mon.), and Beijing Commune (86-10-8654-9428; www.beijingcommune.com; closed Mon.).
