Following hot on the heels of Champagne 1 and 2, this
year brings Champagne Thr3e, adding more sparkle to
the mix with a large basement disco spinning hip-hop
and house. Ultra-chic, ultra-cool and ultra-modern with
fast-moving images projected throughout the club--descending
the stairs here is like walking into a designer's mind
during a flash of inspiration.
Cosy corners provide intimate seating, or you can reserve
a private room for a minimum order of NT$6,000 to NT$15,000
and recline in relative luxury.
And, as you'd expect, the drinks menu
is as lavish as the decor. True to its name, around
50 kinds of champagne are available (mainly by the bottle),
ranging from NT$2,800 to NT$18,000 for that extra-special
quality vintage. Or enjoy a champagne cocktail (NT$420)
such as Lychee Champagne, or Blue Champagne--a wicked
blend of champers, blue curacao and a touch of peach
An extensive list of wines follows
(sold by the bottle) as well as over 30 quality whiskeys
(12-year by the glass, others sold by the bottle). Then
there are liqueurs, spirits and several bottled beers
ranging from NT$200 to NT$250. Or, hot from the dance
floor, literally chill by the attractive novelty ice
bar, sporting a good selection of vodkas (NT$200-350).
Food is also available all night long, with the most
popular choices being Chinese Marinated Food (NT$300),
Germany Style Sausage (NT$350) or Deep Fried Fish Finger
with Thailand Dressing (NT$300).
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday retain
a lounge bar vibe, with the first two nights offering
an all-night happy hour, buy-one-get-one-free on beer,
and a Moet Chandon Champagne for NT$2,000 a bottle.
Wednesdays are Ladies Nights--free entrance and a champagne
drink for ladies and, for the lads, a cover charge of
NT$500 before 11 p.m. and NT$700 after (includes one
drink). Fridays and Saturdays (NT$500/700 cover charge)
see several DJs working the floor, with occasional appearances
by guests such as Taiwan's DJ Alex.
Current regulations require Taiwan Fun to remind you
not to drink and drive, or drink if you are a minor.
