Cé La Vi

Dec 2, 2019

WITH LAST YEAR’S COMPLETION of Nan Shan Plaza, Taipei 101 is no longer the only tower poking through the clouds on a foggy night. Perched on Nan Shan’s 48th floor is Cé La Vi, a ritzy rooftop lounge attracting the city’s young, hip and well-heeled like bees to a nine-meter-long copper-clad bar. Snug, sunken seating booths dot the semi-open-air skydeck on all sides, each equipped with climate control units to offer comfort year-round. Bottle service (starting at NT$5,500) is the name of the game here, but that doesn’t make the cocktail menu any less creative. Signature drinks include a grown-up spin on Taiwan’s ubiquitous bubble tea (black tea–infused vodka, honey, milk and herb jelly), or a riff on the Old Fashioned, given a local touch with Taiwanese tea-infused bourbon and orange bitters. Award-winning local Kavalan whiskey shines in the Dancing Bird, a sweet number with plum liquor, white wine and pineapple juice.
