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 you’ve 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, “I’ll have another and put a little booze in it this time.” It was a fun time for all and although I can’t 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 isn’t always the case. Often in bars you may feel like you’ve 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.
