Fancy dancing the night away to Latin beats? Eating a wide range of tasty Latin American food and washing it down with a Cuba Libre or a refreshing Margarita? No, you won't need a couple of weeks off work and a lengthy flight. Simply take yourself to Barrio, Taipei's own little piece of Latin America, located on, Dunhua S. Road, Sec. 2.

Opened since February this year, Barrio is an elegantly stylish bar/ restaurant/ club that offers a great range of Latin food including Latino Sushi ( slices tortilla rolls with fillings such as goat cheese and roasted peppers), Quesadillas, Ensalada, Soft Tacos and Burritos, complete with a delicious assortment of home-made salsa sauces. With nothing on the menu priced above NT$280, it is also very affordable.

They also have a great selection of drinks, including an excellent range of cocktails (NT$150-300) and a choice of Latin drinks. Priced at NT$250, these include Cubra Libre, Margarita, Mojito, Sangria and Pina Colada. Of course, you can also enjoy a range of Scotch whiskies, vodka and beers. If you're feeling especially in the mood (and, if you're constitution allows it) you can go for the simple but deadly shots of Tequila (ah....my old friend).

While the food and drink contribute mightily to the Latin feel of this place, it's the music and dancing that seal the deal and make Barrio a great night out. Those pulsatingly-sexy Latin 6 eats will have you dancing in no time-whether it's the DJ spinning from the extensive collection at hand or a live band tapping into the Latin spirit within you, you're sure to get into the swing of things and dance the night away. And, don't worry if you don't know how! Barrio also provides lessons in the art of sexy, Latin dance (contact Barrio for more information). Plus, Wednesday is Ladies' Night, when the fairer sex get in free and men only pay NT$350.

Every month, Barrio offers a full schedule of special events and parties. October, for example, featured a Special Salsa Party, a More Fashion Night, a Salsa Halloween Party and much more. Contact them now for what's coming up in November. Ola!.....By Mark Payne Translated by Su ying Lai
