As a single expatriate, you may sometimes feel engulfed by inexpressible loneliness living in a foreign country even though you hold a nice meal ticket and boast all the comforts of a home. Well, The Red Room is coming to your rescue. Untold expatriates in Taiwan routinely get together on the 3rd Saturday of every month at The Red Room, a microcosm of the international community, to dispel that quirky feeling of being alone. You’re bound to feel refreshed, inspired and totally restored after joining the gathering at The Red Room.
(The performing stage of The Red Room)
The Red Room is centered on the idea of “sharing.” Members of its capacity crowd – most of them expatriates from different backgrounds – freely share whatever they want to share with one another or the rest of the audience. Many of them exchange the juicy tidbits of their living in Taiwan, relating their very own anecdotes that have unfolded in a congenial country that some have even started to regard as their second hometown.

During breathers, people walk around, exchanging greetings, comparing notes, and sharing their stories. Here, you’d feel quite at home talking to strangers because all the attendees are warm and sociable and would love to have a cozy little chat with you.
Also going the rounds are bottles of red wine, cokes and snacks just in case you’re thirsty or hungry. Bringing your favorite drinks and nibbles to share with others is highly welcomed as doing so, you guessed it, helps “share” on-the-house costs.
If you wish to make new friends, mingle with people, watch live shows, soak up an ambience blended with mixed cultures, or if you just don’t know where to spend your solitary long Saturday nights, The Red Room is definitely a great place to be and promises an unforgettable evening time after time.
