Open until Late

The evening's festivities kicked off in the square on Art Street with the Paddyboy bar rating committee telling stories (one part truth, two parts fiction) and sipping on sodas. After a few hours, we hopped in a cab and went to see what was in store for us in the Canal District bar scene. We decided on the often-overlooked but resilient Night Bar.
The Night Bar (located on the corner of Ching Cheng Rd. and Hua Mei St.) has definitely stood the test of time. I actually remember missing the New Year¡Y¦Ys festivities a few years back because a friend and I were in a heated Jenga match with two lovely and talented waitresses in the Night Bar.
Upon entering the Night Bar, we were greeted by four smiling bartenders and noticed a few people sitting at the bar. Currency and cigarette packs from around the world decorated the wall behind it. Since there were too many of us to sit in the narrow main area, we were led into one of the KTV rooms in the back. After politely refusing the use of the KTV machine, we set our attention on the drink menu.
The menu is in both English and Chinese and boasts a cocktail menu you certainly wouldn't drink your way through in the course of an evening. The prices of drinks seem to escalate by popularity rather than quality. The cheapest beer was a Heineken at NT$120, the cocktails were between NT$150 and NT$220 and a bottle of Johnny Walker Black goes for the hefty sum of NT$5,000.
The Night Bar is open until 3 a.m. and its food menu consists of Taiwanese snack food. It is a good place to go with friends for a little sit down. On the Paddyboy Bar rating scale, the Night Bar gets four Taiwan beers out of a possible six. So put on your lucky shirt and go out for a giggle. Have a good one.
