The hall dedicated to the "national father", Dr. Sun Yat-sen, was built in 1972. It displays a collection of Sun Yat-sen's belongings as well as pictures and videos about his life and Taiwanese history. It's also a multi-purpose public center and is used for holding concerts and performances.

The former Taipei City Hall where the Japanese governor signed the surrender in 1945, is nowadays home to the Taipei Chinese Orchestra, and its plaza is a stage for productions and the land of skaters on regular days. It was built by the Japanese in mid 1930's and renovated in 2001. It is one of those Japanese architectural experiments. Some highlights include its decorative elements such as the Hispano-Moorish inspired windows in the front.

The most important and biggest live music venue of Taipei. All the non-stadium international bands used to play there, and you can also enjoy very interesting Taiwanese bands that play every week. The sound quality is good and tickets and drinks are not very expensive -it costs a bit more for international shows. There is also a studio called The Ball in the building, a record shop, a restaurant and even a tattoo shop.
