A great place to pre-game before hitting the clubs, AQ's (Alcohol Quotient) range of bars are great places to visit for their affordability, atmosphere, and excellent location.   Aq's four venues are all located in the trendy Zhongxiao-Dunhua neighborhood.

AQ has the widest range of shots that you’ll find anywhere in the city. There are over one hundred different shots and drinks on the menu with many varieties of alcohol and liqueurs; however, if you are a beer drinker, you may find the selection rather limited.

The prices of drinks here at these bars are unbeatable.  For standard shots the cost is a mere NT$50 and specialty shots cost only NT$100.

To purchase drinks, you must first buy tickets. Two tickets (worth NT$100) is the minimum purchase while if you buy eight tickets (NT$400) up-front, you receive one free shot.

AQ Cava is one big room tables along with two patios for smokers. It’s the most populare of the AQ bars and therefore the best for meeting new-friends.
