Mono Mono is a well-kept secret tucked away behind AnHe Road, section 1 (very close to Kama). It has a rather refined feel, achieved through understated, stylish furnishings and well-placed low lighting, complemented by the laid-back music, played at a suitably unobtrusive level. It would be an excellent destination to impress a date with as it manages to pull off an exclusive feeling without being standoffish (as attested to by the friendly greetings/goodbyes passing between the surprisingly down-to-earth staff and customers). The bar has an excellent selection of over 35 single-malts whiskeys, as well as various scotches, bourbons and Irish whiskeys. All except three are available in single measures (for example, Macallan 18 Year Old NT$340/single, NT$6500/bottle; Glenfiddich 10 Year Old NT$250/single, NT$4000/bottle). The well-trained, knowledgeable staff are more than happy to assist those having difficulty choosing. Any lingering indecision may be settled with a sample. They have a reasonable selection of wines and their house red is Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Shiraz Cabernet (14%) for NT$250/glass and NT$1,000/bottle. The house white is Rudolf Muller Piesporter Michelberg, Reisling Spatlese (9%) at the same price.
Budweiser, Heineken and a small selection of Belgian beers sell for NT$180. A good range of cocktails is also available (Cosmopolitan NT$250, Bombay Sapphire and Tonic NT$220).

Attention to detail seems to be Mono Mono's strength -- it's a pleasure to watch their staff work and the amount of attention paid to the preparation of even a lowly Jack Daniels and Coke is impressive. They offer some intriguing sounding snacks, such as their Fire Miso Fish (NT$180), as well as appetizers and main courses (NT$250-450). Both Eastern and Western dishes are present. They don't open until nine p.m. (but stay open until 4 or 5 a.m.) and the bar is practically invisible until they turn on their sign.
