Bittersweet - BS mix
Bittersweet - BS mix Review
Bittersweet – BS mix is a Speak Easy Bar in Taipei. From the outside, it looks like a generic Italian restaurant that you’d definitely skip…given that there are much higher quality restaurants in Da’an area.
But once inside, you’ll walk past the few tables they have and you’ll find yourself in this red party room.
On Fridays, they do all you can drink: NT$700 for women and NT$800 for men. You’d have to drink a few cocktails to make your money back, but it’s doable.
The vibe is pretty mixed on Friday nights. It draws more of a Western crowd with some locals.
For fun, they have a Nintendo 64 with 4 working controllers! A few of the games we played were Mario Kart 64 and Bomberman.
The prices for the non-all-you-can-drink menu was pretty reasonable. Beers for around NT$100 and boilermakers for around NT$250.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
