    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      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 super-friendly owner. She has your back and never fails to make you feel welcome.

    So being in the vicinity of Bell Bar I thought I'd quickly check it out and grab a much deserved beer as I'd surely perspired a pint of fluid on the journey down. It was hot, dark, clammy, oh and the rain yes, lots of rain. So with three sets of different maps on my phone and me desperately trying to find my golden elixir, I was getting nowhere quick, although I did eventually prevail. Really, the place is a nightmare to find if you don't know the area, stuck down a little 'hutong-like' alley.

    I entered for a quick one, just wanted a no thrills, basic, standard draft beer. I asked and was given a rather feminine looking glass of draught beer, 60rmb please Sir, really! 60rmb?

    It’s true, I was never on to a winner having worked up such a sweat finding the place, that’s hardly the bars fault, just me and mine alone. I'm sure it's a great place that many people love, it did look like you could 'chill-out' there quite easily. But, 60rmb for that beer? Oh well, off to checkout some other place.
    Tis the season

    Its the season for hot gluhwein and Bell Bar has been my go to spot to imbibe this soul warming drink for over 4 years. The atmosphere is unbeatable for a rainy or cold day. You feel like youre in the library of a rich British uncle just chilling with a sampling of his personal stash in your hands. I hadnt been to Bell since last winter as the hot wine and their selection of hot toddies are the only things that motivate me to hustle pass the Tianzifang crowds. I was glad to see that the wine is still spicy, warming and strong as before; however, they have gotten rid of their happy hour buy-one-get-one on their hot drinks. Now the happy hour is only for a select list of cocktails that weren't so appealing, particularly when youre looking to warm your bones. Without the happy hour pricing I think I would rather stay in my hood and make my own mulled wine; which is a shame as Bell was my go to bar from December-February last year. Still a good place to kick it with a good book or cool place to meet a philosophical pal. Service is always pretty good. Havent had any complaints in that dept. over the years.
