Smack in the centre of the tendy Dong-Qu amongst fashionable boutiques and classy lounge bars, Hoky's is a fish out of water. Hoky's Spirit Bar's authentic local atmosphere sets it apart from the other bars in the area.

Hoky's has a loyal crowd of regulars in addition to some walk-in traffic in this popular nightlife area. The bar is small and dark  which may make it seem unwelcoming to unfamiliar patrons, however, the bar stocks a wide selection of local drinking games, which could be the perfect icebreakers for making friends.

Hoky's has an extensive collection of spirits from around the world.   Atypical of dive-like bar, Hoky's stock a nice range of imported craft beers, in addition to the very typical Taiwan beer ($180NTD).

A nice little pub to spend an evening in, or to stop by at while bar-hopping in the DongQu district.
