TAIPEI, , July 19, 2017 /PRNewsire/ -- Situated in a prime location in Taipei's hip downtown DongQu area, award-winning lounge and bar KOR evokes modernity in design and tradition in sound, forming a sophisticated, intimate environment. In a city where clubbing culture has grown exponentially in the last ten years, KOR offers a refreshing alternative by updating the nightlife landscape in Taiwan's capital, paying tribute to the speakeasies of the prohibition era.

Inspired by the recent rebirth of the speakeasy movement, KOR's impeccable interior design provides a space that offers a unique visual experience paired with continually evolving crafted beverages. Unrivalled in design across Taiwan and Asia, the space is a blend of art-deco and modernity, featuring sophisticated accents of gold, black and white, providing a space that offers a special experience. In early 2017, it became the first bar in Asia to receive the prestigious iF Design Award for Interior Architecture: Hotels/Spas/Restaurants/Bars. KOR was also proud to be part of the 2017 JCD International Design Award, Best 100. The award was founded by the Japan Commercial Environmental Design Association in 1973 and is recognized as the most reputable accreditation for design in the industry. Co-designed by theLOOP and E-Tai Design Agency, the striking interior features art-deco lines, inspired by the 1920s, that take guests throughout the space, drawing them to the centerpiece of KOR's extendable bar area which creates different ambiences for different occasions.

Designed specifically for KOR, the space also houses the world's first chrome finished VOID Acoustics sound system, which impresses the senses both visually and aurally. Guests are able to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere featuring hip-hop, funk and soul - a refreshing changeup from the ubiquitous EDM.  Whether guests are visiting to unwind, enjoy cocktails or network with clients, the music provides the perfect atmosphere.

With a focus on cultivating an audience of premium spirit lovers, a variety of unique cocktails and beverages are curated by a group of talented and passionate mixologists. KOR Social takes place once a month, focusing on offering rare spirits paired with food tastings. Its targeted audience ranges from the curious novice to experienced connoisseur. Previous KOR Socials have featured hard to obtain tequilas, bourbons, sakes, and baijius from all over the world accompanied by food prepared by the best of Taipei's restaurants. KOR's bartending team will also be proudly preparing cocktails for the ultra-exclusive Barcelona Supper Club event on Aug 4 at RAW with Andre Chiang ("The Greatest Chef in the Indian Ocean region") and guest chef Albert Adria ("Spain's Magician of the Moment").         

Co-Founder of theLOOP Inc. Alan Hsia commented "At KOR, we pride ourselves on our passion for experience, we have created a space that not only stuns visually but that offers audiences in Taipei something a bit different. When we created theLOOP, we wanted to build an all-encompassing nightlife experience through a multitude of platforms and with KOR, we are able to offer something that stands out. Each arm of the business has an individual voice and passion driving the team to deliver an individual experience."
