East End is a proper lounge hidden inside Hotel Proverbs, situated in a fancy part of town in Taipei. It’s dripping with cozy vibes, making it an excellent bar for an intimate night out. There’s a minimum order, so expect to drop a pretty penny. The aesthetic of the bar is refined and spacious and their choice of furniture is fitting for a fancy hotel bar, with underlit counters, silver-plated walls, copper-fitted lamps, and a well-lit back bar wall, resulting in an overall classically sleek look. It’s a highly-rated place, with the collaborative minds of big names in the cocktail industry curating the overall concept, including Nick Wu of Bar Mood in Taipei and Hidetsugu Ueno of Bar High Five in Tokyo. By focusing on service and luxury paired with an outstanding sense of design, they’ve both managed to make East End a familiar name in different top bar lists in Taipei and around Asia.
