What to expect: A mix of under 25's with the
odd taxi driver, all in various states of gaudy
fashion. Prices average around NT$600 but, despite
the across-the-board price, drink quality will
vary. Some clubs stock premium brands while others
offer lower quality substitutes. Downsides include
long lines and generally unimaginative music.
To avoid spending your whole night in the queue,
ask for a larger cup and for a double or a triple.
However, this may cause trouble later on as some
bartenders will keep serving you the same strong
drink all night long. If you don't change your
order, this could be the end of you, with not
so sexy results!
Plush, swanky interior made to look like a royal
palace. The atmosphere is sometimes more fun to
look at than the patrons this hip-hop club attracts.

The only all-you-can-drink pub
that offers free snacks along with the mixes.
This place is off the hook on Saturday nights,
complete with Taiwanese girls (and boys!) stripping
down and dancing on the bar, and a quite impressive
fire show. 222, JinShan S. Rd., Sec. 2, B1
Not a dance space but still makes
the list for it's all-you-can-drink facilities.
Located in the middle of Warner village. Settle
down on the patio for some fresh air, people-watching
and healthy microbrews. 12, SongShou Rd.
The Party room is located on the
12th floor of the Living Mall, otherwise known
as the Deathstar Mall. Like the rest, it gets
a bit cramped but offers two rooms, international
DJ acts and a good mix of popular electronic music.
137, BaDe Rd., Sec. 4, 12F
Notorious for NT$100 all-you-can-drink
for Foreigners on Wednesdays. Located conveniently
at GuTing station next to the Starbucks, it's
hard to miss. 67, Roosevelt Rd., Sec. 2, B1
