Club 75

75, ZhongShan N. Rd., Sec. 6
停業 Closed

 

 

Here is place that I dreamed of once in a lullaby. Club 75 is a laidback restaurant, bar, and lounge. It's TienMu's best choice for head-nodding hot music and hot dates. Club 75 features a DJ every night of the week. Frenchman Romain Crozier leads the way with sassy French House (Afro, Latin and Arabian beats); other DJs like Brazilian Rod rotate in and out during the week, and between sets from the band that plays live on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Club 75 house band, "Pasion Latina, con Fuego y Alma"--its name should give you an idea of the hot music to be heard here--is led by inimitable music director and impresario Roberto Zayas, and is a six-piece group that includes Xiao Bai on drums.
Xiao Bai is considered Taiwan's hottest drummer this side of Dino, who backs Wubai as part of China Blue. Xiao Bai is currently touring with A-Mei, but usually bangs the drums at Club 75. Then there is Rick Taira, Taiwan's Latin legend on bass, trumpet, and backing vocals. Check out his recent CD, now on his own label Rat Records and available at Club 75, but soon to be re-released by Jingo Records. Alec Haavik on sax will make you swoon with his sweet, sad tunes. Danny Deyshaer on trumpet and Hong Yi on percussion round out the band.

But the beat is not always thumping at 75. During dinner--whether on the spacious outdoor patio or in the comfy, cool restaurant--great Mediterranean cuisine is to be had.
For the avant-garde among us, 75 is more then just the source of crisp cool beats. The walls are festooned with available art. Every item is cutting edge, oriental in style, and produced by owner-operator and cult personality in his own right, Patrick Lee.
