Revolver is a popular bar and live music venue in Taipei City located near the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. The 1st floor is the bar area with an open front entrance so customers can either mingle inside or out on the sidewalk. The 2nd floor is a space for live music where bands and DJs often perform.
Revolver is primarily a 20's - 30's crowd. There are lots of music fans, and a mix or foreigners and local Taiwanese. It is a fun place to mingle and talk.
Revolver is a short 5 minute walk from the MRT Red Line Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall stop. Walk out Exit 4 and continue walking down Roosevelt until you see Revolver on the right.
The address is: No.1-2, Sec. 1, Roosevelt Rd, Jhongjheng Dist, Taipei City / 中正區羅斯福路一段1-2號
The venue is not huge by any means, but the 1st floor opens completely onto the street so you can hang on the sidewalk on a nice evening or when it is too crowded inside.
There is a nice selection of bottled and draught beers. They stock both craft beers and local lagers like Taiwan Beer.
There were 6 beers on tap when I was there.
The 2nd floor has a stage for bands and DJs. Lots of local bands play weekly. For a current schedule, check out their website....
Some funky decor at Revolver.
There is some seating downstairs. On a busy night, it is quite lively. On quiet nights, it is a good place to have a drink and talk with freinds.
