“They told us hip-hop wouldn't work,” are the first remarks from this nightclub's team of owners. Well, they were wrong.

Located a stone's throw away from the crowded shopping centers that house the majority of nightlife, this is where you go to avoid large, crowded EDM clubs, listen to great hip-hop and rub shoulders with Taipei's stylish & international crowd.

Chess Taipei is fearlessly nurturing a culture of trend-setting over trend-following. Touted by many celebrities, models, and influencers as the best club for hip-hop and open format music, this is a must-do for nightlife mavens.

Make sure to play it cool if you spot the occasional celebrity or model covertly partying at one of the handful of VIP booths. If you have to stop staring…it is too late.
