The continuous flow of people, the construction of new skyscrapers and new businesses setting up in town: Taipei never stops. Well, traffic may grind the city to a halt but other than that, everyone and everything is always on the go.
And that’s certainly true for Taipei’s vibrant nightlife scene. If you have a list of hotspots from a few years ago, you can forget about it: clubs come and go at the drop of a hat. And that has nothing to do with the quality of its venues, but is merely a reflection of how quickly things change in this city.
A night out in TaiPei
Despite its chronic growth, Taipei is often described by enthusiasts as “the big city with the soul of a village”. With its skyscrapers and fast-paced crowds, Taipei feels like a busy metropolis, but if you know where to look you will stumble across great spots that offer outstanding (live) music, ranging from indie to grunge and ska to hip-hop, jazz and blues. To help you out, we have listed 3 great places:
A cool, friendly bar that hosts amazing live jazz and blues music. Locals come here for endless jam sessions and delicious cocktails: a winning combination.
This classy joint is a must for gourmands who love music. But be sure to book a table ahead of time. The house band and house wine alone are 2 excellent reasons to come here.
The bar for alternative music fans. Revolver is a small (read: intimate) venue where all kinds of musical genres come together, from rock ‘n’ roll and dubstep to ska, and everything in between.
