Lounge/shower situation with BR lounges in Taipei and alternatives

Transiting in Taipei twice, once between 930am and 11pm, another between 530am and 7am. Knowing how crowded and nothing-to-write-home-about the BR lounges are in general, if I am flying business class and am also in possession of the Cathay Elite Credit Card, I am wondering if it may be better to just go to the bigger Plaza Premium lounge in T2 (open 24 hours) and/or Singapore Airlines lounge (for the morning transit). Thoughts from anyone who have been to these two as an alternative to the BR lounges ?

This is a great question. I'm curious as well. Have had bad experiences trying to use the BR Infinity/Star showers during the early morning transit to BKK . . . long waits, tiny shower cubicles.

SQ lounge is more quiet.

PP lounge has quite big showers honestly. Food options have always been the same... mornings can get pretty crowded but I still find a seat somehow in comparison to the eva lounges.

Very limited sample size and haven't visited either shower facility since 2017, but IME during the morning arrival rush, the wait for showers at PP can be just as bad as at Infinity.

Also, PP shower amenities were very poor - basically they just handed me one towel. The Infinity shower amenities were far superior.

What about the food offerings across the three lounges ?

Don't understand the "tiny shower cubicle" comment. In the BR Infinity they are a good size. In Star there is no toilet in the shower room which is definitely a disadvantage....
