Cages is hands down the best sports bar in Shanghai. In fact, I think it may be the best sports bar anywhere. This is not an exaggeration, I can’t think of anything this place is missing.
It is obvious that a lot was invested in the place. The TV’s alone are worth the trip as nowhere else has the sheer amount and the quality of the broadcasts definitely look HD. There are endless amount of activities from the eponymous batting cages to regulation sized quick shot basketball (tip: if you have never swung a baseball bat, start with the slow pitch softball lane). Our group particularly liked the ping pong and football games.
We went for a company event and there really was something for everyone to try despite the diversity of backgrounds in the group. The food offering was excellent. There were probably a dozen different type of wings and the burger is top notch.
The beers were super cold and you could order mini kegs to your table.
They also have an indoor field where people were playing soccer when we went. Apparently, they also host dodgeball and some Hunger Games style foam tipped archery shoot out. This is the ideal place for company events, group gatherings, families, and people who watch Dude Perfect videos. Basically, everyone.
About 250 rmb per person for food and virtual “tokens” for activities and games
