OOPS Lounge is the first night club
in the NuanZih District and is a new type of pub run
by university graduates, featuring a relaxing atmosphere
and easy-listening music. A great selection of drinks
at affordable prices has attracted many customers since
the club opened.
This place is also operated in an unconventional
way, with no complicated dance-floor setting and no
inappropriate music. Instead, in the tradition of British
pubs, they simple provide customers with a good social
atmosphere that allows them to get together and have
a great time. Apart from that, OOPS Lounge also added
some movie elements to its decor, and work with Kaohsiung's
Warner Village to sell movie tickets for the special
price of NT$190, and host events to give away great
prizes. Every Thursday and Sunday is Movie Theme Night,
with tickets costing NT$250 per person. Wednesdays,
Fridays and Saturdays are also All-You-Can-Drink Nights
at OOPs, costing NT$450 for men and NT$250 for women.
Male and female students with ID respectively get in
for NT$400 and NT$250.
This style of pub is already changing
night club culture in Taiwan. While no one can predict
now successful the introduction of movie themes into
the nightlife scene will be, it's interesting enough
to make you want to check it out for yourself. --By
