Zone 18 is a relaxing, comfortable lounge to enjoy an appetizing cocktail with some friends. The decor is modern without being kitschy, and the atmosphere is deep city tranquil. They have a variety of exotic foods, and if you call ahead of time, they can arrange any sort of party that you want and can also prepare special customized food or drinks. Zone 18 is a place that can tailor its menu to you.

Inside, you can discover diverse accessories from all over the world, which the owner Vikki has collected in her travels. The unique drinks, down-tempo lounge music as well as the chilled atmosphere are great for unwinding.

If you want to try some fine cuisine, the garlic sugar fried shrimp is sure not to be missed, or if you feel like having some ethnic food, the German Pig Knuckle (NT$380) really is a delicacy, or maybe try the salty crisp mini-crabs, a seafood classic. If you're feeling experimental, perhaps try the Oriental Cherry Shrimp Scrambles Rice(NT$150) which is definitely a good choice. Zone 18 also regularly promotes many seasonal specials.

Besides their delicious food, the servers are attentive and well mannered, and will try their best to meet your needs. Coming here makes you feel like being in a good friend's home and enables you to finally release that built-up pressure from a hectic week.
Zone 18 is a fusion of a fashionable New-York lounge style tapas bar with an oriental flair--but without the expensive Manhattan prices. Every Thursday is all-you-can-drink night (male NT$600/ female NT$400), no matter what your poison (think loads of martinis here). Weekends have a variety of specials, changing almost every other week.

So next time when you want to go out for a drink, but you're not in the mood for a pub or disco, stop by Zone 18 to sip one of their unique concoctions and just chill out.

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
