The Tender Land in Taipei has an incredibly unique and peaceful lounge vibe with modern interiors, the majority of their seating stretched along the wide bar. It’s the type of place other bartenders frequent to get drinks after their own shifts because it closes at a later time compared to most bars in the city. Even deep into the night the train keeps running and they stay on track, serving drink after precise drink.
Tender Land is a very quiet bar (a plus since it’s situated in a residential area) making it the perfect spot to wind down and end your day with a proper nightcap. It’s a haven for everyone who knows about it, whether they’re in the beverage industry or not. They also have incredible food inspired by Taiwanese dishes, and like most serious cocktail bars in the country, their respect for the local culture is evident in both the style of service and choice of ingredients. Before you know it, it’ll be 5 a.m. and you couldn’t be happier about it.
Hanging from a carefully designed meat hook hanger system, The Tender Land’s library of liquor and spirits is a beautiful centerpiece to this brutally and beautifully minimalist cocktail bar. Also incredible is the small plates of traditional Taiwanese snacks, such as sesame noodles that you can order with your fine cocktail. And it’s awesomely open until the wee hours of the Taipei morning.
