Kaohsiung has its fair share of clubs and pubs that fill up with crowds of people from all walks of life. But surely the need exists for an alternative: A more intimate place where one can enjoy a drink, live sports, and real conversation with friends.

This is exactly what Tavern 65 offers. Until recently, a common reaction upon entering was: "How can a place with a reputation so big be this small?" But the New Year is bringing new things for Tavern 65. After a big New Year's Eve party, they are doubling in size, and putting in a pool table and other distractions. They are also expanding the kitchen, and adding to an already good selection of Western favorites (steak, fish and chips, burgers, roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, toad-in-the-hole).

The one thing they won't change, though, is the spirit of Tavern 65. The staff here make you feel right at home. "It is your job to have a good time, and our job to make sure that happens," says manager Shawn. "We can do it, too, since we don't go over our capacity."

They cater to the needs of their customers with multiple TVs (plus satellite dishes, which means they show live all major sporting events); regular drinks specials (beers and mixed drinks from NT$100, cheaper during the 5 pm to 8 pm Happy Hour); and an atmosphere conducive to interesting conversation. So, if your friends aren't up for a night out, you can confidently go solo.

"We like things the way they are and we'll keep doing it the way we have been," says Shawn. To use a sporting metaphor, why change a winning team?

Tavern 65 is located a short walk from WuFu 4th Road, Kaohsiung's main bar zone.
