A final belated shout out goes to Kaohsiung’s Brickyard, which celebrated its three-year anniversary at the beginning of the month with a packed house for the party. The bar, renowned for bands, DJs, and a killer menu of comfort food has begun holding Rainbow Thursdays to welcome the LBGT community, the city’s first weekly gay night, and have started an open mic night on Sundays “to give talented musicians a place to jam and try new stuff.”
“We’re proud to have a place where many different groups of people can feel comfortable and enjoy each other’s company,” said co-founder Graham Dart. “Kaohsiung is becoming more international, and our venue is a reflection of that.”
