NileGuide Expert tip:
Sappho's intimate vibe and chill tunes make it a great post-dinner date location.
- Taipei has its share of huge venues crammed with hundreds of bodies, and Sappho provides that intimate live music experience that's missing in the bigger places. Each night the dimly lit lounge hosts live gigs featuring jazz, blues, folk, and world music until the wee hours of the morning. Not all nights have a cover charge, but there is a NT$300 minimum on weekdays and NT$350 on weekends.
Sappho has a small food menu with some "Western" items, though they're not as authentic as the offerings at Taipei's many expat pubs and bars, but that's not really why you come here anyway. Credit cards are accepted and smoking is allowed.
