If you are visiting Shanghai or here for a long period of time and want some western style drink and food then this is the place. Food is good and the atmosphere is nice. Many visitors and expats keep this bar busy on most nights.

After reading about this online and checking out on the website we tried to visit when in Shanghai, we we walked up and down Dongping Road at around 9.30pm and couldn't find it anywhere - very disappointed as went out of our way to find it. Went to Jackie's Beer Nest earlier in the week which was great.

The Donping Lu location has been closed again for sometime. The last time was apparently due to a power outage on the block. However, the local resident's service was restored but the bar stay closed for a long time. They continue to show the location as being open on their website. It's disappointing to go all the way there to... More

Good western food, Nice people and good prices. In evenings it is very crowded and a real bar not a restaurant. Fortunately it's not allowed anymore to smoke inside.

When we went to the brewery our expectations weren't particularly high having been to some excellent cocktail bars and not having high hopes for Chinese beers. However what we got in the end were two delicious IPAs and some really great western food- just like home. Mid-range prices, 80ish yuan for a pizza or nachos. 98 yuan for 1L of... More

Took a guest in from Bangkok by here last week and the place was in a state of abandonment, saying "closed for renovations." As if...looks deader than a doornail

The food is good, tried the steak, pizza, burger and german specialty - only the pizza was not as expected, but with pizzas I prefer them authetic italian. The beer is really good. Prices are OK and the crowd is very lively in the weekends

Stopped for a late lunch. The wings and pizza were great. The chips and salsa were amazing. The fajitas were ok. Beer was cold. We were very happy we stopped here

Normally a fine place, but seems closed for renovations right now. No info on the website to suggest when it might be back open. On the upside, if you do head there, there's plenty of other cool places to walk to in the Hangsheng area.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
