It's commonly known that a warm and tropical city like Taipei could benefit greatly from more outdoor bars and lounges.    The Station provides a relaxed outdoor escape amongst the hustle and bustle of the Taipei Main-Station area,

The Station a unique bar, in that it has no interior seating and it's property is limited to a small bar alongside a pedestrian area and a pair of adjacent tent's.  The lack of indoor seating should serve as no deterrent, as Taipei's warm weather is highly conducive to enjoying a cold drink outside.

The Station offers several simple food items in addition bar selection.  Imported bottled beers are available for as little as $140NT and Asahi Draft is priced at $160NT.  The cocktails featured on their menu are somewhat limited; however, the prices are very reasonable.

Given that there are few other bars in the area, The Station should be a stop on the route of any traveler spending a night at one of the many hotels surrounding Taipei Main-station.

While the name likely conjures up images of a sleazy strip-club for most Westerners, Tickle My Fantasy has gained a long-standing reputation in Taipei for being an excellent little lounge for a casual drink or for the city's strongest Long Island iced-tea.

Located on the well-known bar and foreign business street of Anhe Road, Tickle My Fantasy has provided a comfortable drinking environment for locals and visitors for nearly 15 years.

Tickle My Fantasy is a lounge style bar with an excellent selection of wines and spirits; however, beers are limited to Heineken, Guinness, and other foreign macros.  Tickle My Fantasy's most famous drink is their potent Long Island iced-tea.  The drinks are priced very fairly for a Taipei lounge bar.

As it's open seven days a week, there's no reason not pay a visit to classic Taipei-bar like Tickle my Fantasy.
