Other beverage options include a

10 p.m., Monday to Thursday. During Happy Hour, order a glass of
Rioja red wine and receive a free order of tapas (Spanish snacks).
Also during that time, Torres red wine is NT$100 per glass and two

without all of the noise of most pubs. The owners' friendly
smiles and hospitality are sure to cheer you up after a hard
