A time out in Taipei

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 city in constant change

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:
