FUBAR

FUBAR

25-9, DaYe Road (Soho Street)
停業 Closed

--By Douglas Habecker, translated by Ann Li

FuBar is Taichung's newest dedicated sports bar, serving up full schedule of sports broadcasts in addition to drinks and food. Located on the pedestrian-only "Soho Street" just off of DaYe Road, this pleasant watering hole is neighbors with Salut Pizza and PJ's Cafe, and features a two-sided bar that faces both outdoor and indoor tables. In addition, there's a small mezzanine lounge area upstairs. Canadian Dwayne Worden, who originally hails from the Ottawa area, is going through unprecedented lengths to provide the best sports coverage possible, making FuBar the first bar to utilize a "sling box" and TiVo sytems in addition to satellite TV, bringing every NHL hockey game straight from Canada, not to mention a full schedule of rugby, football (soccer), baseball and NFL American football. Broadcasts are shown on a projection-screen TV as well as three other TV sets. However, it's not just for the guys, as Dwayne also stresses that he wants FuBar to be a comfortable female-friendly place, too. Beers range from NT$100 Heinekens to NT$130 large Qingdao beers and NT$150 Guinness and Boddington's, and there are NT$150 bar shots and various cocktails, like the NT$180 Caesar Bloody Mary. Food includes burgers (NT$150), hotdogs (NT$120), the Chicken Burger (NT$180), Chili (NT$180) and that all-Canadian favorite, Poutine (french fries with cheese and gravy).
