More recently developed XinYi district plays
host to some of the greats in local entertainment.
First, there's New York New York Shopping Center,
then slightly down on the opposite side of the
road you'll see the gigantic Warner Village movie
complex. But it doesn't stop there. In the building
next to Warner Village, tucked away in the back
of the "Neo 19" building, is In House.
In House has one of the biggest garden patios
in the XinYi area. During the day, the patio is
a great place to sit back and enjoy some good
ole Western food during tea time. However, at
night, the lounge bar provides a different kind
of "chill-out experience".
On the patio, there are long, comfortable black
couches offering up relaxation while imbibe your
choice of cocktail, brew, or wine (bottle or glass).
If it's a night to be safe, then non-alcoholic
drinks are available, too.
If you have an hour to kill for lunch, swing by
and admire the excellent view of Taipei 101 while
enjoying a conversation with co-workers, friends
or family. There is a dinner set menu until 9:30
p.m. and the restaurant boasts a huge dining area.
On wet nights, the patio can look pretty lonely,
but inside In House stays busy. A DJ keeps the
place lively on Wednesdays, Fridays and weekends.
The lounge style music inside is the perfect backdrop
for the interior. The bar takes center stage but
the glass walls and a small candle on each black
table to add a little ambiance to a simply decorated
atmosphere. I suggest the Monkey Circus cocktail.
It's NT$250, a little on the steep side price-wise,
but the buzz totally makes up for it.
