Following six months of refurbishing, the aging Social Education
Hall has made a reappearance with a shiny new modern look
and a new name--the Metropolitan Hall. It will however continue
as a multi-function space for musical, drama and dance.
The outdoor staircase is now covered with greenery, and there
is a new transparent elevator, giving a Louvre-type feel.
All the seats inside have been changed, the space between
has been increased, and a central aisle added. A deluxe changing
room for performers has also been added. There are coffee
and exhibition areas. Even if you don't go for a show, pop
in for a coffee and get a feel for Taipei's vibrant art scene.
