A Cheers Bar in Taipei, Taiwan

by Janis on April 30, 2016

Cheers Sports Bar and Barbeque, Neihu District, ??? 114, Taipei, TaiwanDuring a recent visit to Taipei, Taiwan, we stayed five nights in the new Taipei Marriott hotel in the city’s Dazhi District. The hotel is close to the Neihu Technology Park, the Nangang Software Park and the Taipei World Trade Center. It’s also near a Carrefour hypermarket and the Miramar Entertainment Park – a shopping mall with a 230 feet tall Ferris wheel on its rooftop.

We wanted to find a local bar, which was a little tougher-than-expected to find in this area. Through Yelp, we found Cheers, described as a “sports bar & barbeque” place.

The ground level is a small bar area, a few tables, and some electronic dart games that the locals took seriously. We grabbed two seats at the bar, ordered beers, and observed the situation around us.  There is art work on the staircase to the second floor, where people appeared to be eating the barbeque. We never made it upstairs to find out.

Somewhat surprisingly to us, the beer on tap was the French Kronenbourg 1664 beer. Most places in Taipei serve the delicious Taiwan beer, among other Asian region beers.

Eventually, the locals invited us to join in their spirited darts game. We were tempted but declined.

If you are staying at the Taipei Marriott or one of the other hotels in the Dazhi District, check out the Cheers bar. It’s worth the walk.

This was a spectacular bathroom.

We enjoyed the nights that we stayed in this suite. Compare to a Deluxe King room here.
