Founded in June 2012, Chess has long established itself as Taipei's hip-hop hot spot; however, since it's relocation to the ATT4fun in Taipei's nightlife epicenter, Xinyi, Chess has solidified it's presence among Taipei's most renowned and revered party places.

The layout and decor of Chess unite hip-hop and style in a way that rivals Kanye West. Chess's design is punctuated with traditional Chinese elements including   While the music and vibe of Chess make the club worth seeking out, casual clubbers or solo travelers may feel out of place in club that consists mostly of a beehive of private party cubicles. Chess has clearly been designed to cater to patrons wanting private tables and bottles and, because of this, the public space of the club is very limited leaving little room for standing, let alone dancing. 

Since Chess's relocation to the ATT4fun building, the club has featured a number of reputable hip-hop DJ's and had monthly events with guest DJ's and producers. Chess's reputation as Taipei's best hup-hop club allows them to bring in major international artists.  Chess's door price remains unchanged for most events with special events and normal nights costing $1000 for men.

For any hip-hop heads in Taipei, or anywhere else in Taiwan, Chess is the place to be.   Guaranteed hip-hop every night in a classy and refined atmosphere.  While Chess isn't the best place to meet new people and prices aren't cheap, Chess continues to be Taipei's premiere hip-hop venue in Taipei!
