    We love this friendly bar in Tianzifang. It's been there ages and expanded over the years from a little nook to four-floors, spilling out over an old Chinese house. It's reasonably priced, private and always stuffed with nice faces, mainly because of Amay, the... Read more

    A cheap and colorful college student mecca, Perry's offers up some exceptionally cheap eats and drinks. The bar's style is reminiscent of a graffiti-covered viking long-hall, complete with long wooden tables and benches. Great for bumping into new friends. Perry's... Read more

    Very cheap bar popular with students at the nearby East China Normal University. Check out their buckets of rum and Coke for 30rmb, or some ridiculously low price like that. Your head will not thank you for it in the morning, but hey, good times is good times. Read more

    Hidden down a small street off of Huashan Lu, Time Passage (or Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow in Chinese) has somehow managed to stay open and running since 1994. It's a great place for a relaxing drink during the week and every weekend they have live blues, jazz, or... Read more

    Large, vaguely Spanish bar with a short menu of food. The staff are really friendly — the manager is formerly of Cantina — and there's lots of room to sit down upstairs, around a large, central bar. Drink prices are eminently reasonable: 35rmb for pints of Carlsberg... Read more
