So How's the Pig and Whistle for younger kids? (College)

Postby Springfield » 20 Sep 2008, 01:13

Me and my friends are in College here in Kaohsiung for 1 year. We're 2 freshmans and 1 Sophomore. We wanted to go Drinking and socializing but not to a club, just a bar. I was just wondering how the Pig and Whistle is for the younger set (us). Will there be other college level students there?

If not, could anyone tell me where there is a larger crowd of College students? I know obviously places like Lamp and Dreams would have them but we aren't really the clubbing type, we just want to go hang out, drink and meet people. I guess if all else fails we can go to the park.

Also, how is the Pig and Whistle now-a-days anyway? I heard a while ago it was pretty risky business, but that now it's cleaned up? Is this also the same with Dreams?

Why was it risky business? Triads? Really have no idea. I frequent there when I was in KHH.

I guess some cool places to drink and have snacks are:
Tokyo City (food yummy and cheap and beer aplenty till late morn)
The Lighthouse (higher priced but good atmosphere)
Blue Fantasy
those outdoor open area bbq joints
those ktvs which are moderately priced (BYOB) without the sex meimeis.

Do what most expats in Taiwan do. Pay an exhorbitant cover charge for a club and then spend the rest of the evening on the steps of the nearest 7-11 drinking Taiwan Beer.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

The Pig & Whistle here in Hsinchu was never a hangout for 'younger kids'. The "Pig", and here I mean the pub/restaurant area, was rather a place where some older expats and managers from the Science Park got together over a few beers. A good place for socializing and I made many an acquaintance there.

However, I can't remember it as a hangout for 'college kids' simply because it was too an expensive place for 'younger kids' to drink and eat. The younger crowd frequented the 2nd floor disco club, but you mentioned that you're not interested in clubbing.

I use past tense because it shut its doors a couple of months ago.
