Millennium Vee Hotel's much-anticipated roof-top sky bar is now open, offering a classy, high-end nightspot with magnificant views of Taichung's newest skyscrapers. Customers can savor a long list of creative and traditional cocktails (NT$280-350), beers (NT$190-300), coffees, desserts and snacks. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
Guests at this open-air lounge can sit around small tables, in comfy sofa/cubicle areas (with minimum charge) or at the bar.
Moonight's normally chilled-out ambiance gets much livelier during once-a-month Full Moon parties, held around the 15th of the lunar month (see Compass "Nightlife" events listings) when there's a DJ and dancing. Jazz en Vogue, an excellent French-Taiwanese jazz trio, plays live Thursday through Saturday nights 6-9 p.m.
Two proprietary cocktails here include the Ciroc, made with tea-infused vodka, fresh lime juice, egg whites and other ingredients, and La Vie en Rose (NT$350), which uses Tanqueray No. Ten Gin, sencha green tea, lime juice and homemade rose syrup.
