Cool laid- back bars with a pleasant atmosphere are a rarity in Hong Kong. That is one thing I really miss about New York City, where you can find cool bars almost as often as you can find chain convenient stores in Hong Kong. Soon arriving Tainan I was struck by the city’s laid- back attitude. People of different ages are hanging out in bars and cafes of all sorts around the city. The pace of Tainan city is definitely different from that of Taipei. After walking and exploring the city for hours, it was time to pause and recharge our batteries. Near the end of Shen Nong Street, we came across this empty but atmospheric retro bar call Taikoo. I am not sure if it is the fad in Tainan, but I was surprised to find an extensive list of artisanal beers on offer at Taikoo, many of which are from Belgium. Shen Nong Street was one of the highlights of Tainan City, and Taikoo was the icing on the cake for us. The beers we had here were JUST DELICIOUS! The leather sofa was comfy; the ambient lighting just right; the music being played was in line with the decor, I think you get my drift here. Starring at the people walking by Shen Nong Street and sipping these beers in this bar was so enjoyable. I will definitely come back to Taikoo if I make it back to Tainan City again.
Taikoo has an upstairs seating area and also sells vintage furniture in the back building.
