A welcome addition to a already trendy neighborhood, Corner Office brings a Southern Californian atmosphere to Taipei.

Although Corner Office is officially branded as a restaurant serving new-American cuisine, it's impressive selection of draught beer piped through a ten-tap wall make it a must-visit destination for beer-enthusiasts.  The taps feature a range of imported imported macro-beers and locally brewed craft beers. Those intimidated by the assortment may opt to be aided by the beer selecting spin-wheel behind the bar.    Corner Office, also offers a selection of imported wines in addition to a range of spirits to satisfy cocktail drinkers.

Corner Office's styling is that of an American gastro-pub and it's impressive wall of beer-tap-handles is worth the visit alone.  The vintage Hollywood movie posters that adorn the walls contribute to the Californian vibe, of this awesome bar/restaurant.

Corner Office is an awesome place to down a few pints (even if it is officially a restaurant), and my only complaint is that they aren't open later.

A fairly obscure bar, serving only those in-the-know, Come Here Bar is a trendy little lounge with friendly staff.  Situated on the busy Keelung Road, Come Here is seen by thousands of commuters everyday, however it's isolated location makes it an unlikely stop on a pub-hopping night out.

Come Here Bar is a small and intimate setting that is dimly lit with stylish lighting and a central horseshoe shaped bar.  Electronic darts and a large TV provide entertainment to those unsatisfied by drinks alone.

Well stocked with spirits and champagnes, Come Here is a nice place for a night-cap.   A limited beer menu features Taiwan Gold Medal and Heineken.

If you find yourself in the near vicinity of Come Here Bar, you should pay a visit to this nice little lounge bar.
