Both chocolate and love are known to
induce euphoric states, so it is appropriate that the
pub previously known as Chocolate and Love has been
reborn with the name Bliss. Many old regulars will love
the improvements and changes that maintain the same
artistic bent and relaxed spirit -- but add more to
the mix. Murals decorate both the facade and the interior,
adding colour and fun. Paintings by local, original
artists are still proudly displayed. The live music
keep going until 2 a.m. -- long after most bands around
town have gone home. A satellite TV system brings the
world in, or shows live footage of the upstairs band
downstairs. Organized Flirting, a speed-dating service,
will be hosting regular events for the romantically
inclined. The downstairs has a comfortable sofa area
near the back, and new downstairs bathrooms -- but the
best feature remains the friendly bar. Absinthe is still
on the drink menu, ensuring many an interesting evening,
but the food menu has been upgraded to include Western
and Cantonese favourites. Try the Western Gourmet Burger
(NT$240). With so much going on at Bliss, keep an eye
on this magazine's What's On section.
