The Face

270, ZhongXiao East Road, Sec. 4, B1-1
停業 Closed

By Shanzi Chen Translated by Cara Steenstra

Although the once-glorious "Ya Yen" is now history, its premises have been taken over by a glamorous and modern club known as The Face. The greatest attraction here is the catwalk, which stretches around the premises, lit up by LED lights. Contrasting this is a mysterious atmosphere, with deep-red sofas and candlelight, creating a laid-back yet glamorous feeling.

The Face's design is multi-faceted, mainly using red and white in a mix of pop and late-modern glamour, so that the contrasts are not only seen but also felt. The concept here is the brainchild of Planning Director Shaman Chiu. Being an interior decorator, Shaman wanted The Face to double as a club during the night and as a fashion catwalk during the day, so that fashion shows or other activities could also be hosted. During clubbing hours, you can dance to the changing catwalk LED lights while showing off your confidence and charm.

The Face also boasts the longest bar in Taipei city, staffed by seven experienced bartenders. Young, humorous head bartender Allen already has seven years of experience and his careful attention to detail helps him create the perfect cocktail for each client, according to their individual moods. He created the house drink, known simply as "The Face", a cocktail which even has male and female versions. Another cocktail worth mentioning is the Raspberry Sea Breeze. Made from the latest addition to the Absolut family--Absolut Rasberri--it tastes sweet like love itself.

The Face hosts special parties every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday: Wednesday is Singles Night, featuring three special cocktails with three different meanings. Club staff play cupid and use games to bring singles together. Thursday is Party Night and two popular foreign DJs from Taichung, Andrew Ford and Boyan, get the crowd moving. Andrew says that the music he plays at The Face will be cooler than ever, and the partying will be wilder than ever (his official website is www.djandrewford.com ). Saturday is Foam Party Night, when bikini-clad girls are welcome to come have fun in the foam and sign up for the Sexy Foam Beauty Contest.

If you're ready to show yourself off in elegant surroundings and meet other beautiful people, there's little doubt that The Face is definitely the place.
