There are places in Kaohsiung that are as much part of the city as Monkey Mountain or the Love River. One such place is The Dick & Cowboy (located close to the Grand Hotel by ChengChing Lake). Many long-time foreign residents consider the Dick & Cowboy a home away from home. Many local residents think of it as a place to go and have some good, clean, unpretentious fun. Whatever the case may be, 'The Dick' rocks!

Long established, the Dick & Cowboy is the home of the Kaohsiung Hash House Harriers, and has seen many evenings of friendship and laughter. It is a space where small bands can go and perform live. It is a place that has regular special barbeques. It is a place that is available to rent (at a mere NT$3000) for private parties of 20 or more. They serve decent meals at even more decent prices. Try the homemade chilli for only NT$150, or their Beef Burger. It is a place that is perfect for a quick drink to quench your thirst after work, or spend an evening playing pool and enjoying good company. More than anything else, the Dick & Cowboy is a place where you can go and feel right at home the very first time.

Every night until 10 p.m. is happy hour, where bottled beers sell for NT$100, and soon their menu will change, to offer even more. Owner Candice (who happens to be one of the nicest people you're likely to meet), likes to think of 'The Dick' as a place where everyone and anyone is welcome to come and do almost anything and everything they like (within reason). In this writer's opinion, it would be difficult to think of the Dick & Cowboy as a classy place, but very easy to see why it is in a class of its own.
