Witch House really is Magic…The Gathering… Actually, it’s a little bit of everything. Witch House in Gong Guan area, is a live music spot, a cafe, a restaurant, and a shop selling imported board/card games such as Magic, Settlers of Catan, Game of Thrones and more. The best part is that you can stop in for a drink and play many of the games for free.

The Food

Because Witch House is more of a social scene than an actual dining area, they tend to offer a lot more appetizers and drinks than food. However, Witch House does have a nice range of pasta and rice dishes. The meals are all a little pricey though, and usually range from NT$180-220.

The drinks consist mostly of various types of tea and coffee, but they are well made and they even come with a cherry on top!

The Games

The games are what most people come for, being the house’s specialty. Witch House has acquired a very large range of imported strategy board and card games from around the world. Not only does the shop have a lot of games to play for free while you are enjoying your drink, but there are also hundreds of games for purchase as well.

As mentioned, the shop offers some of the most popular games like the Settlers of Catan series, as well as many other innovative games. A large number of them come from Europe, but they contain English rules inside. Otherwise, you can find all of the guides on the web.

The games really are something unique, and offer an interesting way to spend some time with your friends. And when you are finished playing, you can stick around for the music.

The Music

Witch house is also a live house. In fact, it is one of the most popular live houses in the area, known for having a lot of indie music and student bands.

You won’t find any of the bigger acts here, but you will be able to see some pretty good shows. Also, for NT $300 and a free drink (both alcoholic and non) you won’t be spending too much money, even if you don’t really know the bands.

The Environment

Both the exterior and interior of Witch House are made to resemble a medieval pub of sorts. With wooden windows and a old feel, Witch House does its best to set a unique atmosphere.

Also, there are lots of witches….and bras? We don’t know if the barmaids/owners are feminists or just out to have a laugh, but many of the chairs also have bras hanging around them as decoration.

Other Activities

In addition to everything else going on at Witch House, the venue also occasionally hosts gaming tournaments. There are a variety of games played at the competitions, but they are always changing, so if you are into this sort of thing, your best bet is to hop onto the website/google calendar to see what’s going on.

Wrap Up

Witch House is a jack of all trades kind of place. With so many things happening, it is an interesting spot to check out any day of the week. The music is unique, and the wide range of games provides a unique way for you and your friends to meet up. No matter what you are interested in, Witch House is one of Gongguan’s most popular spots, worth visiting regularly.
