I'm in Taichung, Taiwan. One of the three biggest cities in Taiwan.

There's lots of expats, but mostly from other Asian countries from what I've seen.

Normally I would look for a sports bar on Google Maps or just Google the question and find somebody has already asked or already created a list of places for a given city.

But in this case my Google-fu is failing. Google Maps is only throwing up red herrings. Places which are already closed or look nothing like sports bars when you go to street view.

Can somebody do a better search using Chinese, or does somebody have the local knowledge?

  • @pnuts: No it doesn't. That would probably depend mostly on the timezone difference. What would matter most to me is if it has a cover charge or if their drinks are overpriced (-; – hippietrail Aug 19 '16 at 11:37

Well just after I posted this, pnuts indirectly helped me find a venue!

A place called "The Uptowner" is advertising the even on their Facebook page:

They mention having to book a seat, which I'm not keen on. Plus I can't tell if it might be pricey.

So I'm still open to alternative places, but at least I've found one. Thanks pnuts!

  • well, given that they have to pay per visitor, having to book a seat seems a logical consequence... – jwenting Aug 19 '16 at 13:06
  • @jwenting: Hmm I haven't had to book before in Australia or Vietnam. I have no idea how the places have to pay. I've just turned up and purchased a beverage and found a place to sit. – hippietrail Aug 19 '16 at 13:20
