Spark, just like its name, is a nightclub with glowing overhead light displays and a dance floor that lights up. Ever since it first opened in late 2013, Spark has ever since been one of the popular places for partygoers to have a good time. Located at ATT4Fun, expect a long line alongside with those who are headed to Club Myst; just let the gatekeeper know which one you are going to. For those who don’t want to carry their belongings throughout the night, there are lockers as soon as you hit the top of the escalators. Although Spark may be known for their compact dance floor, it also allows partygoers to interact with the DJ and performers on stage. The space is filled with the best dance music in town and is usually packed throughout the night, so get dressed up and make sure not to lose your friends in the roaring crowd!

Also located at ATT4Fun, Myst is the largest nightclub in Taipei. It is known for its main dance floor, which has a huge stage for performances, but it’s not the only place you can enjoy performances at the club. At the individual corners of the dance floor are four podiums with dancing poles for go go girls to perform! Be on the look out for Myst girls because as soon as they’re on stage with bottles in their hands, it means free alcohol! There are two bars on either side of the dance floor, followed by one in the VIP lounge and one in another room that plays Hip Hop music. Storage on the other hand is a bit pricey: 100NT per storage space, so you may want to consider bringing a smaller bag or fitting all your friends’ bags into a bigger one. If you need to take a break from the pounding music or the crowd, check out Myst’s beautiful waterfall or enjoy the stunning view of Taipei city from Myst’s balcony. Myst is definitely the club to be at this summer!

With improved lights decorating the entire club, Room 18 is stepping up its game to become one of Taipei’s hottest clubs. It has two different areas playing the newest urban and electronic dance music that fills the rooms with cool beats. Although the club is spacious, it is not as spacious as Club Myst at ATT4Fun.

Make sure you keep the tickets they pass out at the doors, because one contains coupons for two free drinks, and the other is a free entrance ticket for the next time you visit Luxy!
