Taichung is rightfully known (in Taiwan anyway) for its nightlife. Whether that means sophisticated cocktail dens, friendly dive bars or bottle-service-only night clubs, the city's after-dark fun is just as electrifying as it ever was.
Here's a list of places you'll want to consider to enjoy the nightlife in Taichung. I've included Facebook links so you can see what's happening now...
Soho Street in downtown Taichung has four bars where expats hang-out every night of the week and on weekends: Salut Pizza, Soho 7, PJ's Cafe Irish Pub, and Venda's Secret Bar. Great outdoor sitting area on a pedestrian alley, interesting folks, crazy parties sometimes.

For a different kind of nightlife in Taichung, you can visit one of the many night markets in the city. The most popular one is definitely Fengchia Night Market, but you could also consider Yi Zhong Street Night Market if you are in the old part of Taichung, near the train station. Check the map below to find them.
