VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS
It was our friend's birthday, and we were going to make sure he
had fun whether he liked it or not. Our first order of business
was to have an agreeable meal, then wash it down with a few lagers.
The evening began to take the shape of a late night and someone
suggested we relocate to an establishment where we could show off
the dance steps that we had so diligently practiced for the occasion
(these were his exact words). It was agreed that we would take our
act to The Pig Pen.
In case youve been trapped in an attic for the last five
years, The Pig Pen is a dance club located on Takuan Road (across
from the Soundgarden). The dance floor was packed and the Coolio
song, Gangsters' Paradise, was pounding out of the
speakers. Although this was all the motivation we needed to strut
our collective stuff, we opted for a drink. At the bar, the stunning
bartendress- Purple greeted us. Beers go for NT150,
and the cocktails have you remembering Bill Murray in Groundhog
Day saying, Ill have another and put a little
booze in it this time. It was a fun time for all and although
I cant say for sure, I thought I saw birthday boy charming
the ladies (a charge he denies).
With this sort of fun you would expect me to tell you that we
all left arm in arm singing Manchester United songs. Well, this
isnt always the case. Often in bars you may feel like youve
gone to the fights and a party broke out. The Pig Pen is no different.
Where it does differ is that they lack sufficient security to handle
such problems, and often, the staff encourages the behavior.
That evening, the Paddyboy bar rating committee did manage to
leave intact, and we finished off the night with some teppanyaki.
This dance club is open until 6AM and has ladies nights on Wednesdays
and Thursdays. The Pig Pen gets four beers out of a possible six
on the Paddyboy bar rating scale. Have a good one.
