Have dinner at the Howard Hotel's Skyline
Restaurant and Lounge Bar and you get the loftiest view
of Taipei City for free. Skyline is situated opposite
the Taipei Railway Station, on the 45th floor of the
Shin Kong Life Tower. Its uninterrupted view can be
seen through huge glass windows overlooking the hustle
and bustle of the city's traffic. Sometimes, you can
even see as far as the ocean. The view here is especially
good in the evenings, when the city turns into a glittering
jewelry box of neon lights. With such magnificent views,
it is no wonder that this place has always been a popular
choice for lovers to come for dates and even marriage
proposals. Fine cuisine: The newly-renovated Skyline
has a modern visual style that encompasses the colors
white, silver and gold. Its cuisine is a Japanese/French
fusion, with a choice of set menus priced between NT$500
and NT$1,600. After dining hours, Skyline morphs into
a lounge bar with live piano music and a laid-back atmosphere.
You can order exotic dishes such as the American-style
New Orleans Spicy Chicken Wings, the Japanese-style
Roasted Eel with Rice, or the Hong Kong-style Steamed
Tang Bao. One can definitely say that the Skyline gets
better as the night progresses.
