    Already with a history of more than ninety years, the Octagonal Tower in the Ximen area was set up during Japanese rule as a model public market. Later it became a place for storytelling and performances. It also served as the Red Playhouse, and later the Museum of Motion Pictures. Twenty years ago, the Paperwindmill Culture & Education Foundation started the Red Playhouse Rebuilding Project to restore the building. The first floor, featuring Windmill Coffee and the exhibition area, are partitioned by a large fishbowl. You can taste the traditional Red Playhouse Sticky Rice Wraps (NT$60) or the Roasted Crispy Chicken (NT$299), or enjoy the Curry Beef Rice (NT$250: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only), which comes recommended by director Ke Yi-zheng. There's also afternoon tea. The second floor offers different culture venues. There is an experimental theater; a Red Playhouse Band, to be assembled soon, will perform on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
