AI is well-liked spot among exchange students because of it’s free all-you-can-drink nights for both local and foreign students on Thursdays and Sundays. The club also has a decently large dance floor and an elevated DJ booth backed with LED screens that has graced acts as large as W&W in 2019.

However, it tends to get too popular during nights with the student promo – meaning queues can get really long from as early as 10PM, and the dance floor can get a bit squeezy.

Address: Level 7, No.12, Songshou Road, Xinyi District, Taipei City 110, Taiwan

At club M Taipei, the genre is neither the expected EDM nor hip hop. Instead you’ll be greeted with Latin music,which is an unusual but rather thrilling find if you’re open to some groovy reggaeton and salsa for a change. It also closes later than most clubs in town, at 5.30AM, there’s plenty of time to have fun before the lights come on.

Cover charge: around NT300 (~S$13)

Address: Level 3, No.456, Section 4, Xinyi Road, Xinyi District, Taipei City, Taiwan 110
