A little bit of Indonesia's vacation
paradise has arrived on Tainan's JianKang Road in the
form of a new bar named 'Bali'. Owner Liu Jun Wei and
his sister Nicole's affection for the Indonesian island
has led them to try to capture Bali in their new pub.
At Bali beers go for NT$100, there is a selection of
cocktails priced at NT$200 to NT$400 and a collection
of nine different whiskies. If you get hungry Bali has
a small menu of Taiwanese dishes. Nicole says to try
the octopus and BBQ chicken. All dishes are moderately
priced with nothing more than NT$300. Don't expect any
rice here, as Bali only sells dumplings as an addition
to your main fare. Specials at Bali include Monday Night
Darts, NT$80 Beer Tuesdays and Wednesday's "special
surprise" Night explains the (out of place) pole
in the middle of the bar. Fridays and Saturdays your
second bottle of whiskey is 50% off. Sundays it's alcohol
and jazz. Minimum charge at Bali is NT$200, but not
for the ladies on Thursday nights.
drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
