Restaurant & Bar / ATT For Fun Taipei
餐廳和酒吧 / ATT For Fun台北
The Xinyi District in Taipei has been for long time one of the most visited areas in the city with a huge offer of good restaurants, high end fashion shops, chic bars and big cinemas.
This year we discover a new player in the game that is gaining popularity, with his unique views and the good vibe you will find while having a dinner or just enjoying a cocktail with friends. This place is not other than Babylon and it is located on the top floor of ATT 4 FUN.
Under the concept of “Lush Jungle”, Babylon creates a perfect mix between wild nature and the busy concrete walls of the buildings, with a luxurious dining and bar environment. A high-altitude restaurant that serves as an escape from the bustling roads and the noisy of the Taipei city.
As soon as you enter in Babylon the tropical urban feeling will conquer you with the restaurant decoration and the good care they have in every detail. A perfect combination of music, food, fashion and good energy that will boost your mind and your soul.
As we discussed with friends that have visited Babylon recently, many pointed out how the place give you a variety of experiences for different scenarios, taking for example a romantic diner with your partner in one of the separated tables that will give you a good touch of privacy and luxury service, but also how the restaurant and bar adapts to large group of friends who want to enjoy and socialize between each other.
Their menu just complete the whole journey with many options of finger food and starters but also proper meals that will leave you full and satisfied. They also have a large offer in fancy cocktails each of them with a unique touch and they are truly addictive!
One secret you will find if you stay late is that at certain hour Babylon will switch from daily restaurant to a fancy night bar. Once the neon lights are turn on you will realise that the party time is starting and the music is becoming more and more suitable for a good time dacing and drinking. It is really nice how people can experience the interlacing of day and night in there.
Babylon creates a decoration style with a very European atmosphere. The pure white design and the jungle environment of the day decoration is combined with the colorful neon lights and the city skyline of the night. Here you can clearly see the full picture of the heart of Taipei.
As quick as you get on the rooftop your mood will begin to change with a more suitable and happy vibe, all your worries and stress will starting to disappear leaving room for a good weave of music, friends and memorable moments.
One of the greatest views of the Taipei 101 building?
Being located in the 11th floor of the Att for Fun mall has some advantages and one of them is that Costa Blanca is the "closest" sky club to 101 building in Taiwan and one of the very ones where you can see it in its entire form. Such a stunning view of the iconic structure. and definitely a difficult spot to book during the famous end year fireworks celebration.
