Good place to have a fresh beer, it also accommodates vegetarians with their veggie burger. Thumbs up.

This place has a lot going for it: obscure 80s films projected onto grainy wood by the bar (humanoids from the deep, for our visit), semi-professional beer logos painted around the cornice, a black cat, and a decent selection of local beers and good bar...More

As a fan of craft beers, I am always looking for a place to drink local (and non-local) craft beers. Dive bar and grub hut is definitely such a place. Wide variation of craft beers (Taiwanese, American, European), good pub food (veggie burger, fries, chicken...More

Any night of the week, this is a consistently good bar. It doesn't do anything phoney or fancy, it just does it right. The owners are the bartenders, and they want to have a good time just like you. You'll find everything from cheap beers...More

Decent food, good wings and fries. The place itself is a little small, but cozy. It's run by a couple of Canadian guys who are friendly.

It's a nice bar to hang out with friends or watch sport games. They have many kinds of beer and their french fries is the best one I've ever had in Tainan. In the midnight, after night markets, Dive is the best place for you...More

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the
busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the
district, and the long-standing history results in a
variety of street food. In addition to that, this
district also has the highest number of temples. This
is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic
buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example,
Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan

Unfortunately, no we don't show NFL football games, due to the time difference and the lack of an early morning audience for them. I believe Drifter's (another expat bar in Tainan) shows reruns of the games at night, if that... More

An indoor/outdoor bar run by three expats on Tainan's famous Hai-an Road. We have a constantly evolving beer selection, moderately priced cocktails, and tasty pub grub, with bar/table seating both inside and outside, and a friendly, lively atmosphere. Good place for people watching and meeting expats and locals.
