This polished rooftop lounge at the recently opened Le Méridien Taipei draws the style set with fruity cocktails, a sexy bar, and killer views. Those looking to get personal make for the chichi glassed-off nooks where they can converse and canoodle privately, but most try to score a seat on the terrace, where celeb DJs spin on weekends and the scene is smoldering every night of the week.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
An effortlessly sexy, chic little getup, like dark wash skinny jeans, a floaty top, and designer heels.
GO HERE WITH
Fashionable friends; a date; yourself
Upscale mix of international jetsetters and well-connected 20- to 40-something Taipei locals.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The private glassed-off nooks are ideal for getting cozy with a date or even a client, but we really like coming with a couple of girlfriends and scoping the scene (and the city views) from the terrace.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The terrace area is lit by soft candles (read–it's DARK), which makes choosing one of those perfectly muddled drinks very difficult.
GOOD TO KNOW
Smoking is permitted.
