A cozy but stylish little bar in the ShiDa neighborhood that has friendly staff and great prices. Zoo Bar and Bistro is a new addition to the seemingly declining ShiDa nightlife scene.   The low lit inner decor features animal prints that pay homage to the bar's playful name.

The chalkboard drink menu along the side wall includes a wide range of notably strong cocktails in addition to bottles of Taiwan Gold Medal and imported Macro lagers priced at a reasonable NT$90 per small bottle.
Zoo is a nice place for a quiet drink with friends but don't expect to meet hoards of new friends at this quit , classy little locale.

A trendy poolside lounge complete with comfortable lounge sofas and minimalist decor, come together to make Woobar the perfect place to be seen on a night out in Taipei. Every week is chalk full of nightly events in addition to a stylish pre-club crowd on the weekends.

Skilled bartenders at Woobar mix up some of Taipei's most innovative cocktails. Signature drinks include W-made citrus-infused vodka, orange liqueur, fresh lime and cranberry juice topped with cotton candy; hipped chocolate vanilla vodka atop a shaken mixture of our W-made vanilla-infused vodka and premium chocolate creme and many more mouth-watering indulgences.  If you're just looking for a beer, their menu includes a wide range of European lagers alongside Taiwan Gold Medal Beer (priced at a slightly steep NT$190 for a small bottle).

Sure, the drinks aren't cheap a Woobar, but that's not really what you're paying for is it?   Woobar delivers the high-class atmosphere that one has come to expect from the W Hotel brand.  The outdoor poolside balcony is arguably Taipei's best place for relaxing summer drink.
