East meets West at legendary Taiwanese bartender Nick Wu’s Bar Mood, a serious craft cocktail cove where the art of ingredient-focused Japanese bartending meets the speed and efficiency of American drink-making. Here at this new entry to the Asia’s 50 Best Bars list, Taiwanese whisky, along with Japanese whisky and gin, are the key players, built into a menu rich in local ingredients like goji berries, and countless tea syrups, from oolong to jasmine to pu’er. Bearing both marble high-top tables and plush sofas for lounging, Wu has designed the sleek yet comfortable bar for wide appeal.
