[Taipei] Never felt so stressed entering a Starbucks. This is my first.

You need to know this if you are a Starbucks fan. The outlet at Taipei 101 Level 35 promises you a magnificent view, BUT you can only go up By RESERVATIONS only.

Taipei 101 used to be the tallest skyscraper in the world, a symbol of “better than perfection” (as 100 is traditionally the number of perfection).

An observatory ticket up there on the 89th floor will cost you NT$600 (SGD$26.90).

However, a seat at Starbucks on Level 35, will provide you with a pretty-neat view too.

Here are some rules:
– You need to call at least one day in advance. The servers are mainly Mandarin-speaking, if you can’t, get the hotel concierge to help.
– The number to call is +886 2 8101 0701
– They used to issue access cards via the kiosks downstairs, not anymore.
– The minimal charge is NT$200 (SGD$9.30, USD$6.50) per customer.
– Time limit is 90 minutes.
– Dress code: No slippers or shorts.
– Last reservation slot is 90 minutes before closing time.

WAH. Now you know what I mean by “stressful”.

When you get to Taipei 101 on the actual day, look for Door 7, or tell the cab driver the office tower entrance.

DO NOT be late for the appointment. You will probably see a line at the lobby, and a Starbucks staff will appear at the appointed time with an attendance sheet. You will be issued with a number. Do not lose that ticket.

Here’s another tip: There is no use being the first in the line. Because that would likely mean you would be the first to enter the lift, and the last to get out. Get it?

Those who come out of the lift first would most probably stride to the window seats – those with the best view.

Don’t hesitate, just go. Don’t push or rush either. The Taiwanese are generally respectful and civil-minded.

As for the food and drinks, they are the typical Starbucks offering, with some seasonal items. You get my drift.

Take your time to order the food. After that, sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.

  1. Impression of this “recent” post is partially unreliable. The dress code mentioned is totally opposite manner where you can physically see guest that are wearing shorts are still allow to access 101 Starbucks.


  2. Hi, it’s no longer by the order of who gets out the lift first. Apparently, all guests are given a queue number when we make the reservation and only made known to us when we reached the lobby. So entering of the cafe is based on queue number.

I have also purchased a ticket for the 101 observatory via klook at 11am. Please guide me on how to make reservation preferably after our schedule at observatory. Thanks

  6. What if I got a good queuing number, is it okay if I leave my bag near the glass so that I can get a good view? Wasn’t that a little disrespectful or not? Lol I was kind of scared to do that I don’t wanna embarass myself when I get there. Haha.

    Great recollections will likely be produced by receiving out of the home and traveling. You possibly will not possess the price range or even the well being to be on long vacation trips but just receiving out of the home and visiting the shopping center, park or theater will make you are feeling like every day life is worth living.

    A ‘high traffic’ place is desirable for the organization. The amount of men and women will pass by to see your store on a daily basis is essential. However, you should look far more carefully. Can there be enough vehicle parking? handicapped convenience? can a remaining convert be made safely into the parking area? These are all questions you will want to ask.

  10. No such thing as door 7! There is an elevator between Jason’s market and din tai Fung. Take that to level 1 and walk into lobby to find the little corner where people gather. Again no door 7.

  11. The telephone no. Given to me on August 2019 is

    (02)8101-0701 but it does not work, at least not from my German cell fone.
