Oxford Music Pub

--By Pieter Vorster Translated by Annie Liu

Not too long ago WuFu 4th Road was thought to be the heart of Kaohsiung's nightlife scene. With streams of visiting sailors looking to spend some leisure time ashore, small bars popped up along the road, drawing people from all walks of life. Today, however, business seems to have moved towards the central and northern districts, leaving behind many closed doors. Those bars that have remained rely on regular customers and good reputation to attract business. Oxford Music Pub is such a place.

Over the past six years, owner Luka Lu has created a bar that makes up for its lack in size with good food, good drinks, good music and many memories. On any given night you will find regular customers sitting down to an after-work drink or meal, enjoying some live sports on the TV screen or simply each other's company. Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays there is live music that leans towards the jazz variety and on Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. they offer a NT$450 BBQ special from the grill outside.

Other regular specials include Sunday Brunch from 12 a.m. to 5 pm (a full meal for NT$290), and Goulash with baked potato and French bread plus a small draft beer for NT$300. Their menu also includes a variety of Chinese and Western dishes from NT$150, as well as bar snacks like Mexican wings (NT$150). You won't be stuck for choice when it comes to drinks either, as they have a huge selection of cocktails (from NT$180), beers and juices, coffee and tea for teetotalers.

Oxford Music Pub is involved in the community by entering an annual team in the Dragon Boat races and being open to group bookings and special requests. Over the years they have remained a place for affordable good times and seems set to keep going for a while to come.
