With more bric-a-brac than you can shake a stick at, Shun is a cozy, fun nook with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Open for 14 years now, the place has a lived-in feel and is smooth like an aged whiskey. This is the sort of pub one should kick back with a whiskey or brandy, close your eyes and enjoy the jazz or blues on offer.

Shun provides after-work relaxation for locals--basically a neighborhood pub. Popular with Tianmu locals and Japanese (it is located near the Japanese school), the minumium charge is only NT$200 (in Tianmu that's not bad). Interestingly, half the patrons were female, probably because it is the sort of place one can relax unhassled.

Unlike most watering holes, this is a labor of love. The boss has created a pub he likes and doesn't change it to suit fashion. It seems many would agree with him and I personally enjoy places that aren't chasing every buck they can get. Under no circumstances will they serve any drinks after after 12:30 a.m.--a policy that helps keep this place safe and friendly. Shun is open seven days a week, from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.

If you enjoy an establishment where you can relax and enjoy good company, good whiskey or brandy and bit of jazz and blues, this place is an excellent bet. Be sure to say hi to the boss, "Yellow Beard", the friendly bearded and pony-tailed guy behind the bar. Check it out!
