Great place to get connected with other expats, but also meet some nice local people. Quiet if you want to read or get some work done. Extremely friendly atmosphere

We had a nice evening with good food, fancy drinks and a lot of nice people. The Bookworm is a good spot to meet expats.

Perfect place to end the evening with a beer, wine or whisky. The food is OK to good but not fantastic but the atmosphere is very nice.

First time to the Bookworm and hopefully not the last. This is a place you must visit. Wednesday and Fridays are jazz night, but on our visit a young 14 year old girl was playing the piano like Lang Lang. So if you are here on a Saturday, make it a date. Maybe one of the best things about the... More

Conveniently situated just off Renmin Nan Road, just by Nijiaqiao Subway Station. This Cafe style bar boasts reasonable western food with daily specials, a good selection of drinks and nightly live music. It is not a noisy place (the music maybe jazz or even a string quartet) but is excellent for relaxing and chatting with friends. The outside terrace is... More

I recently just got back from Chengdu. I went to the Bookworm almost every night of my visit. I have told everyone here in Arizona it is like The Cheers tv show of Chengdu. The servers are amazing and prompt. The live band when they are playing were amazing. I loved the food and all the people that worked there.... More

The atmosphere here is what makes this place special. While completing a 6 week summer internship in Chengdu I came here once a week to work on a my masters thesis. I've read some reviews about the service here not being so great but I have to disagree. This is not the place to come if you want 5 star... More

2 of us went here recently. We were shown directly to our table. Menus were brought and a drinks over taken. The menu was extensive with lots of options and a wide range of cuisines available. My partner had the fish & chips which were served with ketchup and tartare sauce. It was a decent size portion and the food... More
