      Across from the SanXin (SanShin) park just off of HanKou Road, Live 2001/Candy House is the ideal party place with its pleasant, spacious surroundings and great late night snacks.

      Live 2001, which is reverts to the name Candy House during the day, looks fun even from the outside and is nicely set off from the street by an attractive garden and seating area. Upon entering, one is struck by the sheer size of the place. With its two stories and large dance floor and stage, Live 2001/Candy House can easily handle huge events. The brick and wood architecture and indoor plants give the place a nice look, and the recessed tables on the second floor provide a good spot for groups of friends who want to check out the bands from an elevated position.

      Bands are a big part of Live 2001's appeal, with live acts playing a range of music from Taiwanese favorites, both recent and classic, to rock. Acts are mainly locals but they also host groups from a wide variety of places such as the Philippines and Singapore.

      Another attraction of Live 2001 is its endless supply of free snacks late in the evening, each a special small dish of various well prepared goodies. Combine this with a beer (NT$150 and up) or a cocktail (NT$200+) and a good evening is in the making.

      The evening crowd at Live 2001 is mostly business people, with the ratio of men to women fairly even. Most come with groups of friends and take tables in front of the stage, but many groups have a great time at the small bar area.
Candy House acts as a normal restaurant during the day. English speakers should ignore the connotations of the name - what you're thinking of isn't on the menu. Set meals (NT$150) are prepared by a chef from Shanghai and business is quite good, which is always a good indication of quality. The quality of the food is quite important to this establishment, and the owner himself whips up special snacks for free on Sunday after midnight.

      If you are looking for a midnight snack and a spot to kick back with friends over drinks, it is hard to beat Live 2001.
