      Windows Underground has come up from the depths and become Windows Garage. The formula is the same: a large, cheap bar with bargain basement food and the cheapest drinks in town. Sports on the big screens and pounding hip-hop on the system. Of all the Windows, this one tends to draw a more Chinese crowd.

      Windows Scoreboard is the newest addition to the Windows bar chain, and this one takes their tried and true formula of rock-music-sports-pub and splashes it out in a big beer hall on the 11th floor of an office building. The huge room is split into smoking and non smoking sections, with all the bar games you're looking for (pool, darts, beer pong, foosball), and Windows cheap drinks to match. ...

      5258 8779


      This place was set up by Australians as a friendly, no-nonsense dive but it was taken over by a Norwegian and his Chinese wife. The vibe remains the same, with pool, darts, sport on the TVs and MOR rock on the juke box. Its proximity to Jiaotong University pulls in the odd bunch of students, too.

      昌化路46号, 近武定路

      Phone


      This is a decent beer bar and a good addition to an otherwise rather dull part of Jing'an. They have four beers on tap, starting at 35rmb for a large Asahi. Then there are about 50 bottled beers, mainly from Germany, Holland and Belgium, with some good British ales, too. A couple of dishes are on a small food menu, but go for the beer and the nice, chrome and wood interiors.

      Small but fairy well priced cocktail bar at the corner of Fuxing and Danshui. Room for about 15 people to sit down at the bar and one large table. Drink menu is large, with maybe 30 cocktails, but they're not bad, and most are 45rmb. Gets a bit smokey. This used to be Stormy Cafe, that lovely little spot with the friendly Japanese owner and the dog. Tis no more.

      Situated in the middle of Xingfu Lu, Dada is a chilled out lounge/club space, catering to a younger Chinese and expat crowd in a comfortable, pretentious-free environment. It's like a really nice dive bar. Drinks are cheap, there's ample lounge seating, and music varies from night to night depending on whose playing, but expect dance floor friendly House and Electro on most nights. The club...

      Shanghai's third Downtown venue for this nationwide chain strays not one iota from the formula. Large, windowless interior selling some of the cheapest alcohol in town to a student-y crowd of mixed locals and foreigners. The food is dodgy but cheap. The beer is cheap and good. The spirits are cheap and... possibly a bit dodgy, but at these prices you can't really be picky. Good for crowds. Good...

      Just around the corner from the madness of Hengshan Lu, Eager Beaver is a recommended respite for anyone looking for the more relaxed atmosphere of a neighborhood local. Beaver's bottled beer list is one of the best in town and the pub food menu is quite respectable. Watch a game on the big TV, hone your skill at foosball, or simply shoot the breeze with your fellow drinker.

      6240 2588


      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 rock music. The crowd is a healthy mix of Chinese and slightly older foreigners looking for a low-key place to enjoy a beer.

      Equally loved and despised by much of Shanghai's partisan nightlife public, Windows has stood by its formula of cheap drinks and blaring commercial hip-hop with years of continued success. Nearly always jam packed with a mix of young locals and expats and open very late, Windows makes for a convenient last stop for one more drink or a desperate hook up.
