    • Editor's Description
      Basement club next to the Xujiahui metro station hosting DJs and live shows in one room and bar sports in the other. This is one of Shanghai's oldest bars and live rock venues. They first opened at Hongqiao Lu and Yili Lu in 1996, they moved to Xujiahui in 2006. For many years they hosted rock shows, but in 2016 they did heavy renovation and became more of a nightclub. In one room, you've got a big dancefloor and an impressive soundsystem, plus a stage for bands. The other room has a full-sized pool table, several dart boards, and more of a sports bar vibe that feels a lot nicer than Windows or Perry's. Lots of regulars here, split between locals and expats. They've also got a kitchen serving up burgers, nachos, wings, and other bar food. The owner, Rambo, is a true old-school Shanghai rocker and a super nice guy. Take Exit 2 out of the Xujiahui metro and it's a one minute walk. The cold draft beer gets a decent discount during happy hour. Lots of whiskys on the menu as well, all priced reasonably.
