Prozac balcony positions itself as a "Coffee Bistro" but I assure you it offers far more than caffeine to stimulate your senses.  A fully stocked bar serving up inventive cocktails and imported beers makes Prozac Balcony more than the neighborhood coffee shop.

The interior decor eludes to a British theme with a red London phone booth featured prominently.  The small bar/cafe is cramped on busy night especially on weekends when live music acts fill the back corner.

The staff in friendly and the mostly Taiwanese patrons are a social bunch.  As it is a bistro, a full menu of meals is on offer; however, prozac is not on the menu...

亂調 Chaos

Address: Jinhua Street, No. 223-3, Taipei / 台北市金華街223-3號, Taipei, Taiwan 106

MRT: Guting

Hours: Mon - Sun: 21:00 - 03:00

Footsteps from the historic YongKang Street is a small but comfortable whiskey bar.  A cheerful bar staff with limited English abilities serves up a wide range of imported whiskeys.  Ice-cube's are shaved to order to perfectly all whiskey-less space in your glass. 

The owner is happy to have a drink or two with his patrons which only adds to his friendliness which often increases throughout the night.  It's a nice place to grab a glass of fine whiskey and smoke a cigar in the company of fellow enthusiasts.

If whisky isn't your drink of choice imported Warsteiner beer is available on tap at a moderately steep price of $220NT per pint.
