previously known as the Taipei Public Assembly Hall
98, YanPing S. Rd.
(02) 2381-9551
Hours:11 am-11 pm

    The architecture at this hall is a synthesis of traditional Chinese and Japanese elements, and is a prime example of the architecture of its era; it set the pace for other assembly halls in Asia. After the end of World War II, it was renamed Chungshan Hall. Because of these emotions, this place is certain to find a new life in the minds of those who visit it. Operated by the China Times newspaper, Fortress Coffee has a coffee veranda on the first floor, and a Spanish-style patio on the second. Looking down from the second floor, the scenes of greenery will draw people out for a walk. The food here is prepared by Head Chef Mr Zhou of the Grand Hyatt Taipei, and features authentic Chinese-style seafood. Recommended dishes include Rainbow Trout In Dill Cream Sauce (NT$470), Roasted Rack Of Lamb Seasoned With Garlic And Butter (NT$470), and Spanish Seafood Rice (NT$320). In addition, the Tapas are well worth a try.
