4 PLUS 4

44, Lane 308, GuangFu South Road
停業 Closed

--By Julia L. Koprak, translated by Annie Liu

A barely visible front door. Private candlelit rooms. Mirrors and beaded curtains galore. A long list of fine wines and spirits. Sounds like your typical exclusive metropolitan hot spot. And, yet, 4plus4 seems more like a classy living room where you can stroll in without any pretense. The cocktails (appropriately titled "For Those Vogue") start at NT$250 and the wines at NT$960/bottle. 44th Paradise (NT$280), their specialty drink, is a crisp blend of fruit liqueurs mixed with freshly squeezed orange juice. What's more, their menu adds a bit of panache to the average snacks. The Sirloin Steak with Mustard Sauce (NT$420) is cooked to a "T" and the delightfully crunchy Sauteed Broccoli with Bacon (NT$220) has a lovely white wine aroma. 4plus4 also adds a bit of artsy style with imprinted metal menus, film reels stacked in the corners and everything from funky house to alternative rock coming through the speakers. This new lounge bar is a happy medium of elegance and coziness.
