About The Misanthrope Society:
At The Misanthrope Society, you can get that sense of community without the booze, as the bar is also a coffee shop and bookstore, offering psychology books, autobiographies and novels about dark episodes in people's lives. The anti-social theme of the bar belies its inclusiveness; the owner, who has suffered from severe depression, wanted to provide a space that was welcoming to others in need.
All the dishes have a creative name in Chinese which relate to dark humour words.
The bar itself is characterized by dark humour and dark decor: black walls, a black menu, black plates -- even the fried chicken is black, after being marinated in traditional Taiwanese fermented bean curd, splashed with alcohol and set alight.
