■ Blasterjaxx perform Tuesday night at Myst from 10pm to 4am at Myst, 9F, 12 Songshou Rd, Taipei (台北市松壽路12號9F). Admission both in advance and at the door is NT$2,000 before 12am with three drinks and NT$1,500 with two drinks after midnight.
If the weather is forgiving, Room18 and Barcode’s annual rooftop party is always your best bet — if you can get in. That being said, an open whiskey bar is worth the trouble, and will also keep you warm. Your ticket also gains you entry into Barcode or Room18 after the fireworks, and ticketholders will also receive a free one-month pass to Room18. DJs Andrew Ford and Mira will set the mood and play alongside the fireworks. The view from the rooftop is unarguably one of the best in the city.
■ The 8th Annual New Year’s Eve Rooftop Party is Tuesday night from 9pm to midnight at Room18, B1, 88 Songren Rd, Taipei (台北市松仁路88號B1). Tickets for the rooftop are NT$2,000 and are only available until Dec. 30 at Room 18. There will be no door tickets. Tickets will also guarantee entry to Room18 or Barcode after 12am, and includes two drinks at one of the venues. Regular admission to Room18 is NT$1,500, which includes two drinks but no access to the rooftop.
If crowds and clubbing is something you’d like to avoid, but so is staying home, the newly opened and much-raved-about Beer & Cheese Social House is throwing a Black Ties & Brews event, which caters to a more sophisticated style of craft beer lovers. The North American style event will have around 100 different kinds of bottles and draft beer, as well as some cheesy comfort food. But the beers will not only be paired with cheese on this night, but also with chocolate and some electronic music. The Cook, The Thief and Wanghart will transform this social spot into a sophisticated soiree of dancing and disco.
■ Black Ties & Brews is Tuesday night from 6pm to 3am at the Beer & Cheese Social House, 169, Jianguo S Rd Sec 2, Taipei (台北市大安區建國南路2段169號). Admission is free.
