Busy gay bar near the Zhongxiao shopping and entertainment district. La Boca has two floors with comfortable seats and serves excellent drinks.
Popular with trendy, good-looking crowds. Gets very crowded on the weekend. Closed Mondays.

Fabulous bar, unfriendly staff
“Visited Taipei in mid-July with a few friends and went to La Boca. A trendy bar in a residential neighborhood with a crowd that is young, trendy and good looking. The drinks aren't bad either. The bar is small, but the vibe more than makes up for it.
My only complaint is the bar staff: they aren't friendly at all. The bartender I approached seemed annoyed when I ordered some drinks. Imagine that, annoyed at a customer for wanting to spend some cash. I was shocked. When I placed my order, he shot back at me with a pissed off, "What?" There's no need to be super friendly, but there's no need to be rude either.
However, the bar staff were suddenly friendly once we left. Because the venue is located in a residential area and because the neighbors have complained about the noise level, the bar tender who accompanied us outside was suddenly all smiles and charm. Basically, he wanted to make sure we kept our volume low as we walked to the corner to grab a cab.
Still, I would strongly recommend this place. It's a wonderful alternative for those who don't like clubbing or don't feel like trecking all the way to Red Square in Ximen.“

Cool place where gorgeous guys congregate
“La Boca is a nice cosy bar for catching up with friends and ogling at eye-candies. With 90% of the clientele being trendy and good-looking guys, this is definitely a place to visit when you are in Taipei. However, the drinks are a bit pricey and the place is small. Gets too cramped during the weekends.“
