    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 this weekend.
