What a great find! A lovely little neighborhood bar with some great beer on tap. Though we didn't eat here tonight, the menu sports some good Scottish, Irish and general Western bar food! Live music Wednesday through Sunday nights.

Fresh Guinness, friendly staff, good English except perhaps the owner as he is Scottish! LOL Fun place to hang out in the evening. A real plus in Shanghai; comfortable bar stools!

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
