A bar with a superb atmosphere: Scarfes Bar (18. June 2017)

Sometimes random finds are the best! I did not plan to have drinks and I definitely didn’t plan to have them at Scarfes. But I just ended up there by chance – and I’m happy I did. I was seated and given I was the only one wearing shorts I was definitely underdressed but treated […]

Amazing Italian coffee in a very artsy neighborhood: UNDEF/NE (5. June 2017)

Amazing Italian coffee in a very artsy neighborhood: UNDEF/NE (5. June 2017)

Frankly, this is probably an area I would never have ended up in if it wasn’t for a friend. The M50 is a space for various artists having their own shops and displaying their art – and while it is rather remote and most cab drivers don’t want to take you there, it is really […]

Nice place to enjoy a drink in the French Concession: Funkadeli (4. June 2017)

Nice place to enjoy a drink in the French Concession: Funkadeli (4. June 2017)

The Funkadeli is a nice little café offering a decent selection of drinks – a “Moscow Mule” accounts for 60 CNY. If you’re lucky you find a space outside where you can enjoy the weather – in case it is not raining – outside. The waiters are friendly and helpful but you also have to […]

Cool clubbing location with largely local crowd: The Apartment (3. June 2017)

Cool clubbing location with largely local crowd: The Apartment (3. June 2017)

The Apartment is a club with various floors – if you plan to come here on a Saturday or Friday I would highly recommend you to make sure you’re on the guest list as else you have a good chance of not getting in. At first, the place is relatively quiet but at some point […]

Overrated and pseudo exclusive bar: Woobar @ W Taipei (1. June 2017)

Overrated and pseudo exclusive bar: Woobar @ W Taipei (1. June 2017)

I am a huge fan of SPG properties and usually also of W hotels but here we’re facing the ‘pseudo exclusivity’ card again. We went up to the Woobar in the W Taipei without booking anything in advance as it was a rather spontaneous decision. Once you arrive at the top where the bar is […]

Average tea house on top of Taipei: Yuen Shyu Yuen Teahouse (緣續緣) (1. June 2017)

Average tea house on top of Taipei: Yuen Shyu Yuen Teahouse (緣續緣) (1. June 2017)

Taipei has a little mountain from which you can kind of overlook the city – if you’re up for hiking I suppose it is rather nice. If you are exhausted after five days of walking an average of 12 to 15 kilometers, it is nothing special up there. But at least there is a variety […]

A speakeasy which isn’t a speakeasy anymore: Alchemy Bar (31. May 2017)

A speakeasy which isn’t a speakeasy anymore: Alchemy Bar (31. May 2017)

The Alchemy bar used to be a speakeasy but has turned to a normal bar by now. Still, it is not that easy to find the entrance as it is basically in a club where there is a door leading to it – but not hidden as you would expect a speakeasy to be. And […]

Japanese tea ceremony in a perfectly relaxing atmosphere: Wistaria Tea House (31. May 2017)

Japanese tea ceremony in a perfectly relaxing atmosphere: Wistaria Tea House (31. May 2017)

Personally, I have never attended a Japanese tea ceremony so far and I’m sure it is not the same in Taiwan as it would be in Japan – but I suppose you get a good first impression on how such a ceremony usually goes. You basically pick your teas and we went for “Wistaria Tea” […]
