YOUR RATING & REVIEW | VIEW VISITORS RATINGS &
-- By Julia Koprak Translated by Ann Li
Since opening in September 2003, Luxy
has become a staple on every partier's "to go"
list. With 1,000 pings, it is Taipei's second largest
club, and a venue that simply cannot be avoided. The
name blends "luxury" with "sexy"
and this rings true, from the bikini-clad Luxy Girls
grinding on stage to the top-shelf bottles emerging
from carefully hidden VIP rooms.
You'll start to bop your head to the jams pumped into
the elevator and, by the time you reach the massive,
high-ceiling, hip hop-blasting Galleria room, you'll
be raring to go. If you're looking for house, head to
the white and redtinted Lotus Room. Here you'll find
a less crowded bar, a more intimate feel and, sometimes,
some wicked break-dancing. For a more laid-back scene,
check out the second-floor Cigar Room, which has great
views of the rooms below.
Working with the masterminds from The Loop production
company, Luxy features several resident DJs and hosts
a world-famous DJ each month for a special show. Past
artists include Paul Van Dyk, Deep Dish, DJ Jazzy Jeff,
Grandmaster Flash, and DJ Sasha. Anyone who attended
one of these shows will insist that it was an event
Luxy is open from Wednesday to Saturday and the cover
charge ranges from NT$350 to NT$800 including one drink
(the price rises after 11 and during exclusive performances).
Wednesday night is the infamous Ladies' Night, hosted
by Liquid Lifestyle Productions, who keep it real with
drink specials and Luxy Dollar giveaways. Thursday night
is Student's Night, featuring an all-night Happy Hour
Buy-1-Get-1-Free. Table reservations are quite popular,
and require a NT$1,000 minimum per person.
Luxy keeps it fresh by always throwing in something
new. From beer funnels on the bar to dance competitions
to their signature fire-blowing bar show, they'll definitely
keep you entertained. At this longtime hotspot, you're
always guaranteed a good time.
