[quote=“rocky raccoon”][quote=“urodacus”]The local power distribution station. lots of current in there, I hear.
Hell’s Kitchen for a quiet drink, Taipei’s only Irish pub now that the Shannon finally died, and open very late.[/quote]
I second Hell’s Kitchen for both good atmosphere and conversation.
Actually I’d start out at Dozo for nice Japanese food and drinks and then walk over to Hell’s Kitchen for the rest of the evening.[/quote]
I second the Dozo recommendation. Absolutely fantastic food and atmosphere, the place to go with friends, or to entertain clients. It’s on GuangFu, between Civic Blvd and Chung Hsiao East Rd. It isn’t far from Hell’s Kitchen, either. Call ahead for a reservation.
If your GF is younger, she might enjoy Luxy, near California Fitness on Chung Hsiao/Dun Hua. I felt I was getting a bit long in the tooth to go there in my mid 30s, and I wouldn’t show up there now unless I’d spent six months in the gym and bought myself new party clothes, but it’s a fun place.
Tommy, I also recommend that you PM Josefus. He knows were a lot of the hot places are.
