When SmSh wrote about The Camel six years ago, when they first opened, we noted that it was like a sports bar for New, Young, Professional Shanghai Lads — British, American, Australian Shanghai expats heavily into the rec sports leagues around town, they brunch, they do the Brawl on the Bund, they’re in China dreaming of making it big with their own start-ups, they’ve got collared shirts on and hair that flips up in the front. And they also want to watch The Big Game on 9 million TVs in a nicer, generation 2.0 sports bar.
