The nightlife in Tainan is very tame compared to Taipei’s, but still has a lot of fun to offer. Haian Road is an excellent place to start, especially if you want to enjoy simple street nightlife. The sidewalks here are very wide and the restaurants and bars on this street take full advantage of it so you get the option of enjoying your beer and barbeque outdoors.

    Night markets are an important part of Tainan’s culture and are the heart and soul of the city for many. You will find almost everything here from T-shirts, costume jewellery, and purses to pastries, candy, and iced drinks. Most of the goods and the food items at these night markets are a lot cheaper compared to the town’s stores and restaurants, too.


    Kinks Bar

    Kinks Bar in Tainan’s East District has a distinctive ‘homey’ feel because it was converted from an old house, with many of the furnishings still in place. The vintage décor gives off a ‘70s vibe, although the music playing at a comfortable volume is generally more modern.

    The bar is most famous for its Belgian beers, but you’ll also find fruity tipples and a good selection of snacks – again, mostly Belgian. It’s a tricky place to find, being hidden down a small lane by the train tracks, but it’s worth hunting for, if you want an easy-going evening in a quirky lounge bar.

    Red Wolf Tavern

    Red Wolf Tavern is a well-known sports bar with several dartboards and a pool table. Its satellite TVs are an important attraction during important games. The bar offers a good range of beers and liquors and prices are pretty good. There’s also a modest selection of western food available, with the fish and chips standing out as the best offering.

    The second floor is more about music than sports, with live music performances and great sets played by the in-house DJs. There’s usually a cover charge of about NT$250 (including a drink) on live music nights, which are usually on weekends. The dance floor isn’t huge, but it’s about as big as it needs to be, so the atmosphere is lively without being overcrowded.

    Taikoo has a unique look, combining retro décor on the second floor with some geek cred provided by Disney and Marvel characters on the walls of the first. Like a number of other venues in Tainan, Taikoo has a homey feel and look to it, making it a pleasant place to relax and indulge in a little nostalgia.

    The bar serves a good choice of Belgian beers, including some fruity options. The prices are perhaps a little higher than the average, but the setting makes them worth it. There’s a limited food menu, of which the French fries are the real stand-out choice.

    Willy’s Sports Bar & Restaurant is a spacious bar in South District that’s known for its grilled food and an American-style bar. The focus is definitely on sports, with a dartboard, a pool table and a giant TV screen.

    The restaurant part of the name should not be overlooked, though. The food is excellent, and you must taste the Tex-Mex delicacies, pasta dishes, pizzas and salads.
