You can go out for dinner, head to another spot for drinks and then off to a disco for dancing and spend half the evening looking for parking-or you can just go to The Pig. This place has it all!
Located one block down from the Mitsukoshi Department store on ZhongHua Road, The Pig is a largish establishment with a traditional English pub-style facade. Parking is available across the street.
Start your evening in one of the comfortable booths downstairs and order up some dinner. Popular choices include the Roast Crispy Pig Knuckle (NT$450), the Grilled Lamb Chops with Herbs (NT$600) and, of course, Fish and Chips (NT$280). Sometimes a large projection screen shows satellite sports. No pub can call itself "English-style" without Fish & Chips and footie!
A good spot to enjoy after-dinner drinks is up at the bar, which resembles an altar festooned with neckties, sacrified up by many a businessman in the name of a good time. To the back are darts and a pool table to let out some of those competitive urges. Beers run from NT$100 and up and cocktails start at NT$200.

Lubricated, fed and quite possibly tie-less, it is time to work off some of those calories with some dancing. The upstairs is a popular disco and pub area, with its own bar area, wood decor, pool table and more booths with good views of the dance floor. DJs and live bands provide entertainment and keep the party going. The Pig and Whistle is also known for their wild theme parties. This month, for example, it's time to dress up as a member of the opposite sex at the transvestite party on September 30-a night sure to produce many memorable moments, great photos and lots of laughs. Keep your eye on the What's On in this magazine for more upcoming parties.
