Taipei is famed for being one of Asia's most gay-friendly cities. Hosting a memorable pride parade each year, as well as a number of glamourously infamous cross-dressing socialites, Taipei's ever-diversifying population makes it a remarkable city to visit. The Ximending district is known to be a favourite amongst Taipei's gay community and is, naturally, a colourful hive of late night activities - and of course, one of the best places in the city to enjoy a cocktail. At the centre of the outdoor plaza in Ximending, Cafe Dalida's neon lights lures passers-by in for flamboyant cocktails and good company.
A trip to Taipei isn't complete without a visit to Café Dalida. This well-known, gay-friendly bar is located in front of the infamous Red House Square. A notably foreigner-friendly cocktail bar, with a great mix of expats and local patrons. Cafe Dalida serves a notably affordable cocktail for Taipei and is a place to see and be seen. Their drinks are exquisitely made and tasty. There are outdoor seats beneath soft lighting and palm trees. It is a perfect spot to grab a refreshing beverage and enjoy the wonderful weather Taiwan has to offer.
Café Dalida is surrounded by all the shops, restaurants, and gay bars that the Red House Square is noted for, and also just a street away from the bustling outdoor markets of the Ximen district. This bar is really in the centre of it all. Go for a drink and get swept away.
