The Poly Center

Opened in late 2013, the Poly Center is an expansive property development located in the South of Chengdu, between the main thoroughfares of Kehua Bei Lu and Renmin Nan Lu and near the United States Consulate. There are many buildings within the complex, some residential and some commercial, but the most well known one houses many of Chengdu’s expat-focused businesses, including Here We Go and the Sinostage Dance Studio.

Over the last year, the Poly Center has acquired a reputation for being home to a certain degree of lawlessness. Since dozens of bars and clubs have opened inside the building, the location has become a notorious nightlife destination in Chengdu. As a result, many of the facilities in the building have been put under great stress, including the elevators which are often overcrowded or broken, and the hallways which are often adorned with graffiti, stickers, and even flyers.

This is a location very unique to Chengdu, not having equivalent locations that we have heard of in Beijing or Shanghai.
