Built in 1807 during the Qing Dynasty, the Huguang Guildhall is among the most famous guildhalls with a theatre. It was once used as a guildhall for people from Hunan and Hubei provinces. In its theatre, first built in 1830, many Peking Opera stars, such as Tan Xinpei, Yu Shuyan and Mei Lanfang, gave performances. The guildhall is still a meeting place, but one that also offers operas and classical dramas, tourism attractions and dining every evening throughout the year.
