Taipei has always had a thriving live music scene. Whether it’s cover bands cranking out classics from decades gone by or up and coming artists playing their own original music, there’s something for all musical tastes in Taiwan’s capital. But aside from the massive venues that big stars like Bob Dylan and Lady Gaga play, what are the other places to get your live music fix here in the city?

Brown Sugar

Music Venue
At one time, Brown Sugar was the venue that set the standard for live music in Taipei. This place once boasted resident musicians from all over the world, and while it’s still a great place to catch some live music, it’s more of a dinner and music kind of place now until about 10pm when the atmosphere gets livelier.

Music for musicians. This place is the best place in the city to hang out if you’re a musician yourself. There’s a great relaxed atmosphere, and there’s always live music whenever the doors are open. The owners of this place are pretty amazing too as they’re always around to make sure everyone is having a good time.

Sappho Live Jazz

Music Venue, Theater
One of the coolest jazz spots in the city if not the entire island, Sappho Live Jazz is a relaxing venue with plenty of local and international musicians playing a mix of original music and classic tunes. It’s everything you’d expect a jazz club to be and then some more. And although the name suggests otherwise, they don’t limit themselves to jazz here.

Pipe Live House & Music

From live DJ sets to local artists playing acoustic sets, there’s something different going on every week at Pipe. It’s a great live venue that almost has a nightclub feel to it with a few sofas around the place and plenty of space for the crowd to bounce along to the music.
