overpass from the 3rd ring road = beginning of airport expressway, which is just past Holiday Inn Lido.
This should bring you onto Da Shan Zi roundabout. Cross the roundabout and turn Left (= North) onto Jiu Xian Qiao Lu. The Entrance to DAD and the Factory can be found on your right hand after a 150 meters or so.
This is an inconspicuous Factory-like gate, but usually there is a guard on hand which alarms you to the fact there is indeed something living there.
Vibes is found inside this Gate and Lane, some 100 meters down and to the right. At night taxis may loiter in this road. It is usually easy to hail a cab and get home.
Instruction 2) If you take a taxi to Vibes at Night, which you likely will, be sure the taxi driver is familiar with the Factory location. Take a map for instructions. Otherwise you might get lost at night in a former industrial area.
