Kaohsiung is full of interesting places hidden away in back alleys, nestled in the mountainside or, as in this case, on the edge of the harbour waters on a dead-end road. Once you arrive at Huati Lounge you'll see why it's worth the trip. Outside a large wooden patio, complete with deck chairs, umbrellas and greenery, overlooks the ocean and ChiChin Island. While the spacious interior, which is stylish, yet comfortable, overlooks a stage. Though it's an open area, private nooks ring the wall making it a great place for large gatherings or a special evening out with a friend.

On the stage there is live music every night at 7 p.m., 9 p.m. and again at 11 p.m. Each night features different singers or groups and performances may be in English or Chinese. They often have events or specialty evenings, so give them a call or check out the website for more details.

Ordering from the array of dishes and well-stocked bar is made easy by friendly, attentive staff and a Chinese/English menu. The menu includes typical Chinese dishes such as Kung Pao Chicken (NT$280) and Black Pepper Beef (NT$240), as well as specialties like Peking Spareribs (NT$250) and Rosemary Lamb Steak with Red Wine Sauce (NT$380). There is also a tasty selection of Hong Kong Dim Sum (NT$120 to NT$150). After 9:30 p.m. a new menu comes out with tempting "night snacks", such as Smoked Salmon with Capers (NT$380). The drinks menu is inclusive as well, with beer from NT$130 to cocktails from NT$200 to bottles of Scotch, Vodka, Cognac and Wine from NT$980. Good food and drinks make it easy to exceed the minimum charge of NT$200 before 9 p.m. and NT$350 after.

If you're looking for something new, make your way to Huati Lounge where you can wine and dine to a different tune.

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
