GREAT FOOD AND TUNES WITH THE CHANGHWA BROTHERS

By Michael Blayden Translated by Sharon Yang

Brothers Joe and Vincent Wu established the New York Pub on Valentines Day (February 14), 1997. These two young men were kicking around an idea for a new kind of bar and realized that Changhwa City was in desperate need of a good, old fashioned, American-style pub. Their solution, the New York Pub, is a friendly place to have a few drinks and enjoy good food and excellent music.

The friendly atmosphere is no accident. Both Joe and Vincent are very good hosts. They know most of their customers by first name and seem to have that rare ability to make people feel right at home. I happen to be one of those people who appreciate it when the owners even take the time to get to know the folks who only drop in from time to time.

There is no doubt the New York Pub is a hot spot for locals and foreigners alike. And, the boys have everything from The Alman Brothers Band to Smashing Pumpkins and Macy Gray and even Asian pop stars such as Jacky Cheung, Ah-mei, Coco Lee and Wang Li-hung. If you like good rock-n-roll, blues or R&B, then you have come to the right place. Have something new or old that you want to hear? The boys will be happy to play it for you. Not just CDs, but LPs too. Fair warning, however, that there is standing room only on Friday and Saturday nights, when the New York Pub is jumpin'.

From 11 am to 8 pm, the pub doubles as the New York Pub and Coffee Shop. There is a traditional Chinese lunch, sandwiches and snacks, and also a large variety of teas, milk teas, fruit teas and, of course, blended coffees. Prices range between NT$100 and NT$250 for meals and between NT$45 and NT$200 for beverages and cocktails. By the way, they also offer a great homemade American cheeseburger with fries and all the fixin's!
