The 6th Avenue .Taipei

What kind of place can be gracefully fashionable and at the same time be filled with historical elegance? The 6th Avenue--Taipei is such an establishment. So named because it was once the residence of the U.S. ambassador, the building is cozy in the daytime, and laid-back at night.

The 6th Avenue--Taipei, which opened two years ago, is very different from other nightclubs and has become a center for yuppie culture. Originally a place for diplomats and their families to drink afternoon tea, read and rest, it is not a big place although it retains the original fire place, crystal ceiling lamps, old-style latticed windows and a leather sofa. The veranda has natural breezes and a view over the street. The mixture of chilly cold and a warm furnace makes this a hard place to leave on a winter's day.
There's only one private area available, for 12 to 16 people. Surrounded by large windows on three sides, this spot also is popular with show business types.

Heritage conservation regulations restrict open-flame cooking here. This limits what is available, but the Roasted Chicken Leg Thai-Style (NT$450)--recommended by night shift manager Tammy --is presented in a unique sauce, and grilled to a well-cooked gold-and-yellow color. It contains no bones, but tastes of juicy peaches. Tammy suggests a special drink to go with it--the Minnie (NT$300). Sweet green-melon liquor at the bottom mingles with a red wine, Baron de Lastec, on top. There are plenty of good wines here, and a cocktail party is held on the second weekend of every month.
