Why BarCode is special ?

Barcode's hipster vibe is enveloping. With a fabulous view of Xinyi District, sexy electronica and sophisticated drinks made by artful bar staff, the cocktail lounge, which is within walking distance of Room 18, Brown Sugar and Mint, is a convenient start for a night on the town.

The first Taiwanese bar to be featured in US GQ magazine, Barcode has all it takes to become one of the hottest nightspots in town. While most of the action takes place in the front area, a secluded chill-out saloon offers retro furnishings, a pool table and a side door leads to a rooftop terrace.

Apart from the creative, quality drinks, the pub also serves above par appetizers. Lamb brochette (NT$420) comes highly recommended as the tender meat is flavored with rosemary and comes with a peppermint and red wine sauce. Pan-fried mushrooms (NT$300) with basil and garlic, spicy chicken wings (NT$350) and squid bacon rolls with green onions (NT$300) are the favorites among patrons. And for customers with big appetites, clam linguini, created by the chef who formerly manned the kitchen at Italian restaurant Hung Chu (紅廚), is an outstanding choice.

Came here with my partner after a few long days of tourist-y travelling and really needed a drink. When you enter the premises you will b asked for ID (lucky we carried our DL with us) and then I saw on the right side there were pool tables, louder up-beat music and a much noisier crowd. We were automatically taken to the left side of the bar, then realising it was "The Den", a lot less people, more ambient and nicer decor, crowd seemed to all come from western backgrounds. The staff were very friendly and the bartender gave very personalised recommendations. After 2 cocktails, we decided to try their whisky and it came with a big ball of ice (which I have never seen before, but I am not a regular whisky drinker). Cocktails were very different to what I've tried before. Definitely would recommend The Den if you want a nice chilling spot to chat with friends or for couples.

On weekends this place is packed. Eye candy galore and you can smoke cigars indoors. Plus in my book. However be ready to pay an arm and leg for drinks. Took my team there. Few beers. Few cocktails and tab came out to be 14,000 NT$ (WOW!). Not really worth it If you ask me.

Nice bar, but it allows smoking and even cigar smoking inside. Made me feel sick and everything I had worn or brought inside with me smelled awful. The hot water hitting my hair in the shower freshly emphasized the smell and made me gag.

Especially recommended for the expats. The crowd has a high proportion of expats, the other people you run into also speak English, so its great for mingling around. a good selection of cocktails too.
