and grooving the night away at EK
By Lance Cyr
So, you’ve had a few beers (a.k.a. “dance fuel”) at a friend’s
house, or maybe it was some fancy cocktails at a nice bar/restaurant
when, out of nowhere, you are overcome by the strangest feeling--you
must DANCE! The big question then is: Where to go? The usual
places offer the usual elements that haven’t changed much
from the last time. Then, you realize that there is something
new, in the form of Ethan Karan Disco Pub Lounge, known simply
When you arrive at EK, you immediately know that this place is
different. The obvious difference is a giant sand pit for beach
volleyball, complete with an outdoor bar. Sure, drunken volleyball
is really fun, but you know what you really want to do. You want
Entering EK, you are enveloped by the bass from a sound
system that is loud enough to definitely cause some permanent
hearing and organ damage. You casually look around the club,
checking out the scene and giving out “the vibe”. You
find yourself walking over broken beer bottles protected
by the one-inch-thick plexi-glass floor. You see several
horseshoe-shaped booths and lots of tables “This is good,”
you think. “I’ll probably need a place to rest in about
an hour.” So you hit the dance floor. While doing some
silly twirling dance move you think you saw in a music video,
you scope out what EK has to offer.
After dancing for a few hours, you hear the sand pit calling
your name and decide that the closet athlete in you wants
out to play some volleyball. The sand pit is clean with
NO bottles allowed in the pit, so there aren’t any worries
about your bare feet getting cut. You serve, volley, bump
and rotate for a few hours and realize that there is an
annoying light shining in your eyes…the sun is coming up.
Not wanting to see another Taichung sunrise, you head back
in and dance some more.
Finally, you’re tired, broke and partied out, so you head home.
On the cab ride home you think, “Yeah, I’ll come back tonight.”
