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.
