Ounce Taipei is a cocktail snob's utopia in the middle of Taipei. Hidden away behind a secret door in a non-descript café, Ounce's expert mixologists serve up custom made cocktails to suit the most refined of alcoholic palates.
Custom cocktails tailor made to match the individual tastes of each patron can cost a pretty-penny, but for connoisseurs of skillfully mixed cocktails, the resulting beverage is well worth the price. Imported craft beer's are also available, but really, who goes to a place like this for a beer?
The decor honor's the speakeasys of prohibition-era USA, complete with a secret entrance. Bartender/mixologists are appropriately attired in pre-1933 garb, and the relatively contemporarily dresed patrons come from a mixed background of well-heeled Taiwanese and ex-pats.
Ounce is easily among the top of Taipei's (Taiwan's?) best dedicated cocktail bars.
