Carnegie's has been a popular watering hole for Taiwan's expat community and travellers alike since its inception back in 2001 and is certainly an old boy in Taipei's pub scene. A restaurant and sit-down bar during the day and evening, Carnegie's turns into a dance bar late in the night.
The place does have a bit of a rep for getting hot and heavy in the evenings. An equally pick-up ish atmosphere for young professionals letting a little loose in the revelry of radio hits.
If you're hungry but can't decide on what to eat, Carnegie's has you covered. It has an enormous menu that ranges from English pub fare to tapas to Indian cuisine. The diner basics are done best at Carnegie's. As you might guess, any place that turns out high numbers of tequila shots is not the ideal place for French fine dining fare. Stick to fast, simple and fried. Carnegie's provides very good, fresh meals for what is essentially a lively pub.
But Carnegie's is really famous for its drink specials, including a happy hour that runs from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. (all day on Sundays) and a 'Crazy Hour' from 6-7 p.m. every day. A great range of cocktails and arguably one of Taipei's best mojitos. Wednesdays at Carnegie's are ladies' night (and ambitious lads' night, as it goes) where women drink champagne for free.
