The Best Bars in Zhongshan, Taipei

Picture of Ciaran McEneaney
Updated: 14 October 2017
Taipei’s Zhongshan District was once home to a small area known as ‘The Combat Zone’, a few streets that were packed with bars. It started out as an entertainment area for locally based foreign soldiers and soon became a nightlife hotspot for visiting tourists. These days the area has changed a lot, and while there are fewer bars in the ‘Zone’, the wider district of Zhongshan is still home to some great pubs and bars. Here are a few of the best.

This bar is located in the basement of the Amba Hotel and, as far as hotel bars go, this is not your typical place. The décor is vintage and very cozy, giving it that Speakeasy vibe that you don’t see too much of in Taipei. They have an incredible range of drinks (more than one type of bourbon!) and a cocktail list that is quite impressive. There’s live music on from time to time, and a DJ spinning some tunes on the weekends.

If you like your whiskey, then this is the bar for you. This small but very comfortable bar has whiskey from all over the world, and it would take months to get through them all. The owner and staff are pretty knowledgeable about their drinks and will happily recommend something for those new to the whiskey scene. It’s probably one of the most relaxing places on this list and a great spot for a chilled out evening.
