So far my favorite lounge in Taipei is on the 38th floor of the Shangri-La hotel. There is an amazing view on Taipei 101, the cocktails are good and with a lot of flavors i like (i would like to try them all in one night but well, that would be quite bad). I’ve been there 5 or 6 times so far, and it’s pretty nice. The only thing is that it’s a little too dark at night, but that’s better for the view. It’s nice to go there to see the sunset before going to a restaurant or at night before going to a night club, even though for the nightclub, the W bar has a better vibe. It all depends if you want to cool down and stay in a cozy environment, or if you want to get excited and in a more fashionable place. I personally prefer the Marco Polo for the first option.
Just the elevator of the W hotel makes me sick, and the waitresses there look kinda…. too sexy? i would say. I also saw that a W just opened in Paris.
On wednesday i tried a vanilla espresso and yesterday i went for a “apricot mango”. I’ve also tried the Dr. Evil and Bird of Paradise. I love cocktail names, it’s always so beautiful.
