    Shilin Night Market is one of the famous night markets in Taipei. It could be the largest night market, including outdoor street vendors, indoor food courts and shaded stores selling all sorts of merchandise. You can visit the night market by the MRT, stop at Shilin Station Exit 1. If you have free time in the evening, why not stop by the night market for a quick supper!

    Beau: The New Gentleman In Town

    Beau's Entrance (Extracted from Beau's FB album)

    My brother took me to this place on the first day we arrived in Taipei. Honestly, I was annoyed (from lack of sleep) that he insisted that I should attend a birthday celebration that is happening in this bar. On the way to the location, I was picturing how dreading how I have to remove the cigarette smell out of my clothes and hair, how the bar is going to be dark and gloomy filled with people pushing me around, etc.

    I was genuinely taken aback when I saw the entrance. The metal entrance created such a mysterious feel that it sparked my curiosity to see whats behind the door. The first thing I noticed when I'm inside is the antler chandelier that gives the bar enough warmth. Not too dark, not too bright. The high ceiling gives the illusion of a bigger space. I don't have claustrophobia but cramped places do make me feel uncomfortable. The first thing I did was to have my own personal tour around the bar. The bar is furnished with vintage English style furnitures, decorations and little trinkets. There is even a garden area for the smokers. Yay to no indoor smoking! There are cute angry birds locked inside a cage and Ken waving from the top of the shelf in the corner. I was told that the top floor is the VIP area, so I went upstairs for a look. AND OH MY GOD! The decor is just so sophisticated and luxurious. I'm a sucker for vintage and all this sophisticated, this bar is definitely going to be my go-to place to drink.

    My brother order Spicy Chicken Wings and I must say this is the best chicken wing I have ever eaten. The drinks were delicious and the food as well! The Martini served here is neither too strong nor too diluted, it is the perfect mix. My favourite signature cocktails are Stolen Secret, Chocolate Delight, Express Yourself. Try the Pastas as well. ITS GOOD!

    I would recommend everyone to try out this place, I'm honestly impressed with this bar.

    Patina Bar

    Patina business card with map

    Located in "The Combat Zone," Patina is a nice break from the dirty bars somewhat common to the "Zone." Patina has a large U-shaped bar, and beers are a little expensive at around US$3.00, but the atmosphere is very enjoyable with pool table and darts. I met a very friendly bartender there who was 1/4 Filipina and 3/4 Mandarin Chinese.

    if you can't sleep feeling like studying for someting free, you can simply come here. With the lastest design for the store, it's a very fashinable place for reading.
    If you are tired, there is a cafe just near the bookstore, where you can order some drinks or snack even a meal.
    Sometimes you can even see a local star in the book store.

    Dress Code: Anything good for a book store.

    Shilin Night Market

    by akikonomu Written Nov 24, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Night markets are popular with Taiwanese and we had the opportunity visit three: Taipei, Taichung and Kaoshiung. Shilin night market is a popular night spot which opens until the wee hours. One section fo it sells local snacks and drinks and another, clothes and accessories.

    Must tries in the food section include the crispy fried chicken cutlet (two thumbs up), sausage stuffed with glutinous rice, oyster omelette (not my cup of tea), teppanyaki seafood and meats, bubble tea and other desserts. Be ready to queue at popular stalls but IMHO, the wait worthwhile is the chicken cutlet.

    Prices are targeted at locals as well and I didn't experience any rip offs.

    Various: All you can drink

    by deeper_blue Written Sep 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Imagine an all you eat buffet but with alcohol instead, well it's alive and well in Taiwan, many nightclubs have an all you can drink policy. Pay about 600NT entrance and you can drink to your heart's content/kidneys' limit. Just don't get too legless, Taipei can be dodgy for noisy foreigners at night.

    Shilin Night Market: Shilin Night Market

    Shilin Night Market
    1 more image

    Taipei's Shilin Night Market is one of the most exciting night markets around. The Market is actually much closer to the Jiantan MRT station than the Shilin MRT station. One of the area's chief attractions is food- there is an indoor market filled with hundreds of small vendors, eaching selling delicious Taiwanese food, including chicken steak (jhi-pai), bubble milk tea (jhen-jhu nai cha), mango milk (man-guo niu nai), oyster noodles (oa mi-sua), and stinky tofu (chou do-fu), all very reasonably priced. There is a seperate shopping part of the night market, where it's possible to buy t-shirts, watches, fake designer goods, and almost anything else imaginable, at prices that range from extremely cheap to unreasonably expensive.

    Huahsi Market after dark
    3 more images

    There are several night markets in Taipei, and I think they are hands-down the best nighttime activity. They are sprawling mazes of covered alleyways, similar to the arcades and gallerias in Paris, but they are teeming with anything you could ever want! Of course there are acres of knickknacks and cheap goods for sale, but there are store-front massage parlors (legitimate, not seedy), herbalists, videos for sale, jewelry... to my Western eye it was all incredibly exotic. And food: buns, ribs, noodles, stuff you couldn't identify. I was in Taiwan for only one night (long story... there to give a lecture at a conference) and I went to the Huahsi Market with a couple of other guys by taxi. I cannot imagine having a better time. From the foot massages (I suspect the guy who did my massage was into martial arts, and must have had it in for me) to the snake soup (yes, it does taste like chicken), to the hole-in-the-wall noodle place where we had a late supper, those few hours were unforgettable. And isn't unforgettable the whole purpose of travel?

    Dress Code: You probably shouldn't be nude. Other than that, anything goes.

  • Carnegies: Visiting bars

    by scotteeeee Written Dec 22, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's great to see people dancing on the bar but watch out.
    We visited recently and one of my friends had their wallet stolen.
    The staff say it happens all the time ....
    We were very disappointed since we have never had any trouble before in Taipei.
    Advice: Leave your wallet at home or give Carnegies a miss.

    Dress Code: Casual.
