Dirty Roger's Superbar is a Tainan institution, one of the oldest bars still in business. The legend began when Roger opened his first bar with just one light and a single fridge. Since opening that first bar, the owner's optimistic outlook on life, warm personality, and genuine love for meeting new people, has helped the Superbar stay successful despite moving locations.
The current incarnation of Roger's is modest like the man himself. The decor is a bit ragged, worn and musty -- like a favourite book. A quick glance around the room and you know where Roger spends his money. He has a deep passion for music and motorcycles; the LPs, CDs and motorbikes that fill the bar reflect this passion. Drop in and he'll not hesitate to join you in a conversation about either; he's happy to share his experiences. If you're not up for conversation there is Internet available through the three computers at the bar. Alternatively, bring your own and hook up to the very fast wireless connection.
If you want more traditional pub fun, hit the foosball tables upstairs. A night at Roger's is always filled with good beer, good music, and good conversation with either Roger or any of the other friendly people who tend to gravitate around Roger's personality. If you want to meet some of his best friends, come on one of the open mic nights (held every three weeks on Fridays; ask Roger for info).

Roger's selection of beers is at least one thousand times smaller than his CD collection. There are only three: Budweiser, Heineken or Corona. Take your pick for NT$150 and get a shot of tequila as well.

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
