A popular pub for both expats and locals alike, On Tap is a great pub to grab a pint in the Zhongxiao East Road area.  On Tap is branded as Taipei's 'only real pub' although the validity of such a claim may be up for debate.

The bar is among the best places in Taipei to watch sports - especially Premier League and NFL games - because it is large and airy and has many large screens within view.  In addition to the TV's, On Tap has has a variety of entertainment options; a towering Jenga that stands over 2 meters, a giant Connect 4, numerous board games, and of course, pool and darts.

A menu of 7 Draft Beers & Ciders along with a full range of cocktails might be entertainment enough for some drinkers and nightly happy hour prices  (Mon-Fri 5pm-8pm, Sat & Sun 11am-8pm: beer and cocktails from $90) ensure that drinking is an affordable activity.

Regular prices for draft are as follows: Carlsberg $120, San Miguel $140, Stella Artois $150, Abbot Ale $170, Stowford Press Cider $200, Guinness $210, Hoegaarden $220.

In contrast to the common trend, Wednesday is Lads' Night at On Tap, with happy hour prices all night.

Be aware that On Tap tacks on an additional 10% to every bill as a service charge.
