Lounging At Organo

By Yahan Wu

     It's been two hours since I said I was going home, but my behind won't budge. Usually I detest lounge bars, but lazily and blissfully sunk into the gray cushioned seats, I¡¦m finding Organo very much to my liking.

     Afterwards I realized it was the music. Every time I made up my mind to leave after ¡§this one last song,¡¨ another irresistible tune started playing. Here they play a variety of soul-feeding music that carries you away--jazz, latin, blues--but they're meticulously selected so as not to put you to sleep.

     Ricky Tsai, the 29-year-old manager, claims that many patrons consider Organo their "home."

    ¡§Our customers, who are mostly office workers, enjoy coming back again and again, because we're all like family. Our waiters and bartenders don't wear uniforms, and they chat with customers like old friends. Another important thing is those who come also feel safe and secure.¡¨

     AnHo Road's first lounge bar, Organo opened two years ago.

     Local celebrities also frequently grace the place, which is owned by Japanese star Ching Chen Woo and actor Hwang Lien Ying.

     The bar serves an array of Western cuisine, such as German Sausages And Sauerkraut (NT$320) and Red Wine Beef Stew With Orange Sauce (NT$480), made by a Hong Kong chef with two decades of experience. The choice of drinks is impressive; prices are typical for lounge bars, and are served Japanese and American style, or however the customer desires. Spirits range from NT$180-320, beers from NT$150-250, cocktails from NT$180-280, and whiskies from NT$250-650.

    As you relax in Organo¡¦s sophisticated yet comfortabe atmosphere, with its terraced ceiling where large red Chinese lanterns hang, dark wooden paneled floors, candlelight, and a piano against the wall, it¡¦s no wonder regulars call this place ¡§home."
