With the cozy vibe of your alcoholic, Elvis-loving grandmother's home, Elvis American Bar is a lesser-known gem of the DongQu bar scene.  Complete with roaming cats, as a bar named for the the Cat King (Elvis' Chinese name) should be, Elvis bar is an old-school dive bar with charm.

Elvis Bar is equipped with an old-school karaoke featuring Mandarin, Japanese and English songs, which, of course, include the best of Elvis' hits.

The drinks at Elvis Bar are limited to a tight range of imported spirits and bottles of Taiwan beer.

Unfortunately, not unlike many of the older bars in Taipei, Elvis bar strictly enforces a 200NT minimum, making it unsuitable for sharing a bottle of 台啤 with a friend.  

All in all, Elvis bar is a more than suitable pub to sing everything for "Blue Suede Shoes" to "Suspicious Minds" into the early hours of the morning.
