The word ageHa, which means "swallowtail" in Japanese, symbolizes a unique style of glamour. This Japanese-based night spot, which is appropriately glamorous, opened up its first branch in Taipei city last July. Although not as spacious as the Tokyo branch, the Taipei location upholds the chain's party animal reputation. With its recent re-opening, Taipei night-lovers are glad to once again enjoying the top Japanese and European DJs and the unrivaled professional dance shows every Friday and Saturday night.
On a recent visit to ageHa, the night's entertainment included DJ Koutarou.A from Japan and Taipei's very own DJs Frankie and Sam, who kept feet moving and arms swinging with trendy techno hits. After midnight at ageHa, you can expect to see some heavy-duty performances by Toy Boy hirosumi and Go Go SatC. These hard, fit dancers are sure to keep your eyes enthralled. Other shows include the infamous pole dancers Kayo and Maki, who definitely keep the night alive.
ageHa Taipei has a Seresa state-of-the-art stereo system that doesn't tire out your ears after a night of shakin' it on the dance floor. The surround sound and top-notch lighting choreographer, Alba, will get even the stiffest dancers moving all over the place. The great tunes and stage performances at ageHa have already received attention from night club goers all over Taiwan. If you've got nothing on for a Saturday night, it would be worthwhile to check out.
