Taiwan's cultural capital offers everything from traditional Chinese opera to modern dance. Those who prefer bars to ballet will relish the city's nightlife, where you can join in on traditional expat misbehavior (Carnegie's) or spend your evening in more refined fashion (Shintori). At the other end of the scale, nightmarkets are great for a beer and watching the world stroll by. For an evening of highbrow culture, Ximending's Red House Theater has Chinese opera, and cinemaphiles can watch arthouse movies at the Spot Café.
