In addition to breathtaking night views from the skyscraper, residents can also attend concerts in the historical Shancheng Alley, where an abandoned hospital has been transformed into an outdoor theater, complete with lighting and sound equipment.

Shancheng Alley used to be a footpath for local residents. It retains many historical buildings dating back hundreds of years. Since 2018, the local government has been renovating the area while maintaining its historical and cultural characteristics.

Since late June, on weekends, various kinds of concerts and performances have been held there in the evenings, featuring electronic, folk and pop music, making it a hot spot among young people and music lovers.

According to a think tank report on China's night economy, Chongqing is among the top 10 cities in China in terms of influence and economic benefits. The report says the night economy has become a new pillar of growth in the city's development.
