        2388-0440

        Taipei's first BDSM bar now has a friendly living room feeling as the harder crowd has moved to their 2nd location, Commander D. S&M flavored decor at this somewhat secluded upstairs bar. Indoor and terrace seating. Small, but busy, even on week nights. Very friendly for visiting gays of all stripes. Customers have been known to initiate impromptu play and training and the staff still occaionally lower the curtains for discretion when that happens, although most of the action has now moved to their 2nd venue.

        This friendly chub, bear and chaser bar uses the back of their business card to gather and pass personal info along to anyone you might fancy. Spearheading this social lubrication is Singaporean bon vivant, Donny, and his captain, Simon. This is a great place to get info on all things gay and bear in the city. They have a free brochure covering all the Red House businesses and the scoop (if not the skinny) on local goings-on. Mostly Taiwanese, Japanese and mainland Chinese patrons.

    • Red House UTOPIA VISITED MAY 2017
        Lane 10, Chengdu Rd, Utopia Map
        西門紅樓廣場

        This heritage cultural complex houses is a de facto gay shopping center with more than a dozen LGBT and queer-friendly bars and shops. To get there take the Metro to Ximen Station Exit 1, and it's right in front of you. There are two floors. G/F has a series of bars and restaurants starting with the BAD.TW gay shop and ending with the busy Sol bar. Between these you have a dozen rainbow establishments. And don't overlook the venues on 2/F. It is mainly al fresco and can get cold and wet in the winter, so wrap up well if you visit then. Some of the bars have no toilets and this means a walk to public bathrooms. Lively most nights and packed on weekends. The partying runs into the wee hours.

        Popular gay club for over two decades, with an international crowd. One maze-like basement, with a dance floor at the center, coin lockers, and tables and stools around the endges for hanging out. A few women, but mainly guys there to meet and dance with other guys. The music is mostly Asian pop, with some Western mixes thrown in. Crowd is local men and some Japanese guys also. Karaoke also.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "This place discriminates. They charge double the cover for women (NT$1000 entry for women as opposed to NT$500 for men), which I found extremely absurd. I understand that this is a gay bar, but we need more support instead of discrimination. What is even more outrageous is that the person who enforces this policy is another woman. What a pathetic way to keep that glass ceiling sealed." -- Jimmy, Sep 9, 2016
