Drinking on the cheap

By Yahan Wu

     Where can you get large quantities of intoxicating liquids without emptying out your bank account?

     I decided to do my binge-drinking friends a favor, and went out to scout for affordable, yet not dodgy, places to get pleasantly wasted.

     Top prize goes to this watering-hole version of a buffet restaurant: Gossip (3, Alley 20, Lane 233, ZhongXiao East Road, Sec. 4; 02-2740-1201). Gossip's "all-you-can-drink" nights are a dipsomaniac's dream come true. Especially for ladies. On Thursdays, you can get stamped in for NT$190, and devour any of the unlimited six cocktails offered, such as gin and tonics or tequila bombs. There's beer too.

     On Fridays and Saturdays, the same offer goes for NT$490 for both sexes. Not bad at all, but more so, the ambiance is far from dodgy, and your ears can groove to R&B and Hip Hop most nights.

    If you're into your brews, TU Discotheque (249, FuXing South Road, Sec. 1, B1; 02-2704-7288) still holds the record for serving the cheapest beers in town--only NT$100. It works out perfectly: You dance hard, sweat a lot, and then refresh yourself with a cold beer...

    For a wilder, more colorful night out, Cafe Fresh (7, Jing Shan South Rd., Sec.2 , 2F; 02-2358-7707) is another great option. This gay bar has three floors: the bar is on the first, the dance floor on the second, and a lounge area with a gardened verandah on the third. Almost all their drinks are priced at around NT$150.

     If you want a more laid back place, 45 Pub (45, Heping East Road, Sec 1, 2F; 02-2321-2140) is primo. Very relaxed and not too noisy in this hardwood pub. Cocktails are NT$200, shooters NT$80, and beers NT$130.

     Um... so, where are we off to tonight again?!
