Possible, I suppose. VERY strict conditions, though. Loads and loads and loads of petty arsehole jobsworths at Huashan. Its a nice place, though, once you get through the red tape. We had our CD launch party there.
The outside areas are lovely, and I look forward to attending a HH there, if only to see the jobsworths scurrying around trying to shepherd the drinkers back into the premises. [/quote]
There seems to be no problem with how loud the music is - there was a huge rave party in the hanger next to Alleycats a couple of Saturdays ago with loads of models in various stages of undress wandering about. Marvellous.
I think the sound systems are undergoing a testing phase - hence the loud rock music - to see (a) whether they will blow up, and (b) whether anyone will complain about noise. The thing is there are no neighbours.
I don’t think this is going to be a quiet Alleycats. Maybe during the day. The whole area is all set up for music. Zhou Jie Lun (周杰倫)(Jay Chou), the singer, is opening a place across the road and the hanger next to Alleycats is going to be heavily used for concerts.
I’ve been to the new place quite a few times, I like it. I like the Italian farmouse idea and the pizza is great as expected. It’ll be interesting to see how the Huashan Cultural park place develops.
Corner of Jinshan and Bade Loos. Where the old beer factory is. If you ask for the old beer factory, though, there is a 50% chance they will take you to the new Taiwan Beer factory down the road which does not sell pizza.
