Retail craft beer store, café, bar; The Bottle Shop has many identities, the most notable of which may be "craft beer aficionado clubhouse".  Located in the backstreets between SongShan Cultural Park and Taipei City Hall MRT Station, The Bottle Shop is a perfect stop-off for those en-route to the Xinyi nightlife district. Whether you're in the mood for a bottle to enjoy at home, a caffeinated pick-me up, or a draft beer and a chat with a friendly and knowledgeable barman, The Bottle Shop has what you're looking for.

The Bottle Shop is by no-means large, with just two tables and limited bar seating; however, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in beer-selection.   The Bottle Shop stocks a large bar fridge of imported beers alongside a range of shelved take-away beers.  In addition to the bottled beer, a keg of craft beer is always on tap, and they maintain an excellent range of whiskeys.

Where The Bottle Shop's greatest strengths lie are in the knowledge and friendliness of their staff.   Those serving the beers at The Bottle Shop are well-informed about their products and cheerful as they serve them.

In addition to being a great place to pick up a reasonably priced six-pack of craft beer, The Bottle Shop is an extremely pleasant place to have a beer or whiskey at just about anytime of day.   The beer selection and long hours, alone, make The Bottle Shop a must visit location for any craft beer lover visiting or living in Taipei.
