45 is an established giant on the Shih-Ta nightlife scene, particularly for foreigners and their friends. The crowds on Saturday nights get so intense that it is hard to fight one's way to the bar. During the rest of the week, however, there is usually a nice-sized, but not overwhelming, crowd.

The decor is wood, wood and more wood. Wood tables and benches show their regular use, but in a pleasant well-worn sort of way. The pub has two sections, each a separate bar area. The crowds seem to cluster around the connecting doorway and float between these two areas. Customers seem to be younger, often students and English teachers drawn to the bustling atmosphere and inexpensive beer and sandwiches. For those who remember, it seems to have taken the throne of the original Roxy, exuding almost exactly the same atmosphere, minus the dancing area.

45 Pub is slightly hard to find. Located about a block down from Roosevelt Road on HePing East Road, the little sign and narrow stairwell leading up belies the actual size of the place. For a laid-back time of enjoying beers with your friends, 45 is well-worth checking out.
