fresh & funky

This fantastic coffee shop named after the Murakami Haruki's book and Beatles song is located near Gongguan station. European style decoration and good indie-rock music. They really prepare good coffee. The prices are the usual in Taipei (about 150NTD a cup), but they give you for free (on tea time) something to eat: cheese or chocolate cake, cookies or even a sandwich. And, of course, you can use the WI-FI connection for free!

Fantastic pub located near Technology Building MRT station. They play really good music (mainly indie-rock), but not very loud, and they have good sofas, so it's the perfect place for having a drink with friends comfortable and quietly. They offer a good variety of drinks and food, but their specialty is the good whisky.

Jinji Yuan - 金雞園

natural

The perfect restaurant to try the traditional Taiwanese cuisine. The quality is really good and the prices low, even being located at Yongkang street; a place full of good but usually expensive restaurants.

Their specialty are the xiaolongbao (dumplings) and cakes, but they serve many of the most tipical Taiwanese dishes. I strongly recommend the beef soup noudles!

45 pub

recommendation by chema

45 is a classic for Taipei night life and also a difficult place to reach if you really don't know where is it. You'll never imagine that inside that isolated building is hidden a cool pub. As far as I can tell, music in British pubs in Taipei (and also in Tokyo) use to be far from good, but this one has some very good DJ's.
