M&M LOUNGE

(04) 2311-5609
22-27, TaiZhongGang (Taichung Kang) Road, Sec. 2
Hours: 8 pm-3 am (closed Mondays)

With an innocuous-looking entrance and no large sign, this small lounge bar is almost hidden in its TaiZhongGang Road location, about half-way between the Hankou/ DongXing and Dadun roads intersections. However, that's just the way the management likes it as they create more of a private-club feel. The minimalist, dimly-lit interior includes a first-floor bar, with all seven table/sofa areas located on the second floor. These are available with a reasonable NT$350 minimum charge per person. In keeping with its image, the bar concentrates on high-end alcoholic beverages, serving only Erdinger dark (500cc NT$280) and Hoegaarden beers and a variety of other spirits, such as seven single-malt scotches (Macallan, Glenmorangie, Laphroaig, Glenfiddich), brandies, Johnnie Walker whiskies, Moet champagne and red wines. What is unusually good about M&M is its cuisine, prepared on site by two experienced chefs. The reasonably-priced mostly-Asian fare includes the salad-like Hefeng Onions (NT$150), "Ching Lung" (Green Dragon) Beef, Pineapple Shrimp Balls, Fried Chicken (NT$250), and french fries. Not surprisingly, most of the music is of the lounge/chill-out variety and is kept to a nice volume level for normal conversations. There are also occasional parties. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Jean Huang

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
