--By Claire Tyrell Translated by Liu
For some years now, Room 18 has made
its name drawing in the young, the beautiful and the
wealthy -- though luckily none are a prerequisite for
entrance, or a good night!
Located in the Neo 19 building on busy
SongShou Rd, the club consists of two rooms; 18 Lover
and Room 18. Walk down the stairs into 18 Lover, and
you enter a funky blend of chic darkness with red lighting
and a stylish garden patio impression. Man-sized plant
pots and a trellis-like effect provide the minimalistic
decoration and backdrop for plenty of inviting sofas.
This is where talk emanates enthusiastically to a soundtrack
of pumping electronic dance music.
The drink menu is very spirit-focused,
with a good selection of Rum, Tequila, Scotch Blend
and Single Malt Whiskeys and Brandy, all sold by the
glass or the bottle: Havana 7-year Rum (NT$300/4500),
Tequila (NT$200-300/3,500-5,000), 18 yr whiskey (NT$300/5000).
Liquers are all priced at NT$200, and the small selection
of beers sell at NT$200/250. Wines are sold by the bottle
and, rounding off the menu but kicking of the night,
are all the classic cocktails (NT$200-350) or the tempting-sounding
shooters (NT$250-350). A small, but mouth-watering selection
of food is also available.
As the night warms up, squeeze into
Room 18 and onto the dance floor, which vibrates with
the beat of high-energy hip-hop. Room 18 is only open
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday -- but will carry you
through until 5 a.m. on those days. Entrance at the
weekend is NT$700 and includes two drinks. And Wednesdays?
You've guessed it, Ladies Night! Free entrance for women
and NT$500 for men, with two drinks included.
Room 18 retains its loyal clientele
by keeping things fresh, with guest DJs and performers.
