WHISKY--A hidden nighttime escape in the heart of Taipei


By Ken Lin Translated by Melanie Hou

    Most first-timers come here with someone already familiar with this place, and are usually as impressed with its secrecy as I was. However, if you are a fan of local cinema, you may already recognize WHISKY, as it sometimes used as a movie location. I find the design, atmosphere and trendiness of the clientele is very similar to the WHISKY Lounge in the Paramount Hotel, New York.

    One unique feature of the WHISKY in Taipei is its lush garden. The colorful and fragrant flower blossoms create a scene that is usually only experienced outside of the city limits.

    The music they play here is mainly techno. On weekends, there is a music critic for the internationally-respected Rolling Stone magazine is the DJ. This is a great place for enjoying tunes with a group of friends while sitting on comfortable sofas. Try one of the house special cocktails (NT$600), served in milk bottles, such as the strawberry-flavored China Red or the lemon-flavored China White. It's not uncommon to see celebrities or politicians here relaxing with friends in the privacy of this hideaway.

   WHISKY is located in the two-story, futuristic building next to Tequila Sunrise. The giveaway to this secret place is the door with a large number of fingerprints on it, which stands out from the white walls surrounding it.
