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

I really like this place, and I eat here at least once a week, if not more often. The food is consistent and tasty. I wish that there were more vegetarian options in the menu, but there are a couple that I rotate through and they are good. Bar selections tend to be a bit pricey for the quantity and... 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
