The number of pubs and bars in this area has dwindled a bit in recent years, but
it remains home to several places to go, and is in a nice area of town. Anho is an
interesting street to walk along. Low stress. The bars below are located on Anho
between Hoping and Renai Roads.
Anho Rd., Sec. 2, #100

This remains one of the most popular bars in Taipei, and tends to be quite crowded.
Very popular with younger working people after work. Generally plays rock & roll
music. A good place for people-watching.

China Pa receives my vote as the most interesting place in the Anho area. A very
interesting decor, and an interesting drinks list. Seating is generally on sofas,
with a lot of decor to go around. They feature live jazz performances on many nights.
Very interesting and good food as well.
Saints & Sinnners
Anho Rd., Sec. 2, #114
Tel: (02) 2739-9001
A great name, with wide screen TV for sports viewing. I get the feeling that Saints
& Sinners is still trying to find its niche. The menu is OK, but seems a bit limited
with nothing really exciting. The music is OK, and they have a large U-shaped bar.
A good place to go and relax.

EZ5 offers live music on most nights, and has one of the more comfortable venues
for live music in Taipei. An old-style feel to the bar, with lots of space and comfortable
seating. We’d recommend not going before 10 pm or so when the band starts, unless
you’re a fan of techno-pop music. But after that, stick your head in, and see if
the band is playing music to your liking.
Please remember not to drink and drive. Take a taxi if you’re going to drink. Taxis
are inexpensive and widely available.
