Weekends are overrated. Wednesdays, or “hump day”, might just be the best day of the week. The day of maximum hope, that maybe you might make it to the end of this week alive. Hump day has nothing to do with sex (get your minds out of the gutter!). However, it has everything to do with the irresistible “Ladies Night” in Taipei. Legendary in Taipei, there is no better place to be on a Wednesday night.
Here are our recommendations for where to go. Girls, put on your sexy outfits and guys, get ready to party! We advise arriving to all these spots early — otherwise be prepared to face long lines, and sometimes even getting turned away if they reach capacity. Note that hours and entrance fees listed below are for Wednesdays only; hours and fees may vary on different nights.
Located in the ATT4fun building, Club Myst features an open-air deck and crystal clear view of neighboring Taipei 101. Myst might just be the “it” club of the moment in Taipei’s nightlife scene. If you have trouble finding the place, just look for the throngs of people and long line. Once you make your way through the line and ride the elevator up, get ready for the nightclub haven that awaits when the doors open, where mind-blowing music fills the room (everything from hip hop, to house to dubstep) to performances from sexy dancers. Dance the night away, and it’ll be 4 in the morning before you know it.
Entrance Fee: Ladies free entry all night (free cocktails before midnight), men 600NTD (with 2 drinks)
