石洞運動酒吧 My Place Sport Bar

MRT: Minquan W. Road / Zhongshan Elemetary School

Laying claim to the title of "Taipei's first and oldest pub", My Place is the centerpiece of Taipei's Combat-zone bar district.   The pub has changed very little since the doors were first opened in 1975 and it has aged gracefully into one of Taipei's best dive-bars.

The bar-staff are friendly, chatty and entirely female which is to be expected from the hostess-bar nature of most combat-zone bars.  Additional entertainment is provided by pay-to-play pool and foosball tables as weel as plama TV's screening the best of the world's sporting events.

Moderately-priced draught beer at NT$600 a pitcher or NT$150 for a pint compliments a menu of standard pub cocktails.

Those who appreciate a good, classic, dive-bar should not miss out on My Place.

Dick's Place 狄克的店

With a name like "Dick's Place" you can be forgiven for expecting a gay bar, but Dick's is welcoming to people of all walks of life.   A laid back pub with a chilled out atmosphere that stays open late, Dick's Place is a classic Taipei dive bar that's well worth a visit.

No beer on tap, but the standard big bottles of Taiwan Gold medal and classic are backed up by a range of standard pub spirits.   The bar staff is friendly and happy to take on patrons in a game of Liar's Dice.

Some may say that the decor could use a refurbishing but in reality it has the perfect dive-bar grime and ambiance that many bar-goers crave.   Perfectly unrefined.
