Address: No. 12 Sōngshòu Road, 7F, Xìnyì District, Taipei / 地址:台北市信義區松壽路12號7F

Hours:  Wed - Sat: 22:30 - 04:00

Elektro is one of Taipe's hottest new nightclubs and a welcome addition to the club scene.   Opening in late 2013, Elektro occupies the seventh floor of the ATT4Fun building which has long since established itself as hotbed of partying with the highly popular Myst Club two floors above.

Elektro brings together the same well-heeled club as it's predecessor at the base of 101.  The familiar ambiance of overhead lighting displays and a packed dancefloor will not disappoint long-time fans of Elektro.    An entire wall of the club is windowed, looking out over the Xinyi district, adding to the stylish feel of the club.  While the dancefloor is the focus of the nightclub, it often fills up to the point of being overcrowded, allowing little space for any real dancing.

Drinks and cover don't come cheap, as is the norm for a club popular with many Taiwanese celebrities and socialites.

Away from the familiar foreigner pub haunts, on the top floor of the mall famed for it's spherical exterior, Muse is a great nightclub to party the night away in Taipei.

The top floor of the Core Pacific Mall (京華城), popularly known as the Living Mall, contains a strip of nightclubs that are relatively unvisited by foreigners and tourists.    Muse is the finest and the largest club of the strip and it's large lit dance-floor fills up nightly.  The fervor of the lighted dance floor is hightened by the impressive overhead lighting effects. Some of Taipei's best local and foreign DJs keep the party going with pounding club favorites.

The all-you-can-drink bar is well stocked with liquor and import beers and at a price of NT$800 for guys and NT$500 for girls on weekends, the value is pretty good. Check it out on Wednesdays and Thursdays when cover is just NT$200 for ladies and NT$600 for guys

Prestigiously positioned at the base of one of the World's tallest towers, Spark 101 has remained to be one of Taipei's hottest nightclubs since it first opened in 2009.

Spark 101 has an enticing interior with ceilings and floors alight with colors that pulsate with the bass of speakers.  Spark boasts a large VIP section where many of Taipei's best-heeled swill their favorite drinks. The dancefloor is at full capacity most nights of the week, but it's popularity culminates on Friday's and Saturday's.

While on Sundays, Monday's and Tuesday's Spark 101 becomes a chilled out lounge bar, Spark 101 now hosts all-you-can-drink Ladies' nights twice weekly; on Wednesdays (ladies free before midnight, $300 after; guys $400 before 12, $600 after) and Thursdays (ladies free until 11, $200 after, men $600 all night).  As many standard highballs and Blue-Girl beers as you can handle are included in the price. Friday and Saturday turn up the party (and the price) to full gear (NT$800 with 2 drinks).
