This small unassuming Japanese-style pub has recently gained insta-celebrity, its distinctive red lantern hanging out front featuring 📸 in many beautiful night shots of Taipei 101. Its rise to stardom began when it featured in Taiwanese popular idol TV drama 𝘐𝘯 𝘛𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘞𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘠𝘰𝘶. The fortunate conformation of this narrow side alley allows an unobstructed view of the tower. You will have no problems finding this "hidden" location, as every evening small groups of photographers and influencers stake out the alley in full gear. Unfortunately, not many stay after their photoshoot to enjoy a bite at Takemura Izakaya 🙈. @aaaa1982000, who has eaten here before, says it's not only very photogenic, but pretty delicious too. Be sure to give their 𝘺𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪 (grilled skewers) and 𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘳𝘪 (rice balls) a try.
Open today: 17:00-01:00
