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
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.
