Ill be heading over to Taiwan for my 3rd visit this Saturday for a 3 week stay
Now the 2 times that I visited before, I never got to check out the local night life as my girlfriend/partner assured me it was all far too dangerous and bad. My girlfriend is from Taiwan but seems to have lived a sheltered life in the Taichung area before coming to Australia
Anyhow this time I’m going out! and shes going to tag along with some of her friends
I’m from Australia and am quite fond of the club scene particularly when it comes to clubs that play electronica “techno, trance, house etc” Now it seems to me from my limited knowledge, that the majority of clubs in Taiwan are into hip hop and RnB. Now iv got nothing against that music style but its just not my scene. The last thing I want to do is fly all the way over and bump into a bunch of 50 cent wannabes
My girlfriend has told her friends that I’m keen to go out and it seems they are going to take me to a place called PASOUL. http://www.taiwanfun.com/north/taipei/nightlife/0805/0805Pasoul.htm Now from what i can see on the web page, is that this is a Hip Hop club that serves some cool drinks. Now Absinth doesn’t do anything for me apart from make my kidneys hurt the next day so thats not exactly a draw card for me
However I did notice a club called Red Carpet http://www.taiwanfun.com/north/taipei/nightlife/0804/0804RedCarpet.htmwhich according to the website has Hip Hop and electronica and this strange thing called all you can drink??
So my questions are
What are people thoughts on the 2 clubs?
What is this all you can drink thing? “i don’t want to wake up in hospital because the vodka i though i was drinking was break fluid…”
Has anyone got an idea how far away they are from each other? Because I’m not having much luck with google maps and would consider going to RC if PASOUL isn’t my cup of tea
Has anyone got any suggestions of other clubs/places to go that i might like?
