BLISS

Previously known as Chocolate and Love, this vibrant bar and live house located uptown near the Taipei World Trade Canter has been a hub for the the more natural tones coming out of the music scene, particularly from expat artists. After a year in business, owner Barry Smit changed the name to Bliss in 2004 and refurbished the place with better sound equipment. The new venue quickly became a hot spot for acoustic acts, reggae jam bands among other types of tribal and world musics. The classic atmosphere of the downstairs bar with dart board, lively art and plenty of chill spaces complements the chic vibe found in the live music space upstairs. In late 2008, ownership changed hands and the bar continues to have drink specials and hold events.
