If you're like me, the biggest drawback to the whole disco
experience comes when one attempts any sort of conversation:
"What's your name?" "Brbblk." "WHAT?"
"BRBBLK!" And so on.
Deep is one among a new
breed of places that solves this problem simply and elegantly,
by separating the dance floor area from the lounge area. The
dance area is medium to small in size, but has attractive
lighting and enough space for a decent crowd. Nooks and alcoves
are well designed for groups of friends to cluster together
and the colorfully-lit bar area highlights the--hopefully--attractive
patrons perched on the high stools.
A big plus for the
disco is the fact that the manager, American Jack Teng,
takes a strong personal interest in finding quality
DJs locally and even from Europe and America. Having
worked at a similar business in the US, he is experienced
at finding the best people available.
The lounge area is
smooth, cool and chic, with comfortable lounge chairs
clustered around low tables. The lighting is soft and
the mood elegant. This is the perfect area for relaxing,
cooling off after dancing and engaging in a coherent
conversation over a few drinks.
Opened in February and
originally only hosting private parties for top fashion and
media houses in Taipei, Deep is now opened to the fashionista
public. There are lingering traces of Deep's origins and private
parties are still held in side rooms off the main lounge area.
The clientele appears to still be mainly drawn from the fashionable
and well-off set; this is a place to show off that perfect
"casual-smart" outfit you've been looking for a
chance to wear.
If you are looking for
the perfect antidote to the mindless mega-disco experience
but still want to dance, put Deep on your list of destinations
