“Good food, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

This is a small bar with half a dozen tables in the expat drinking zone of Shanghai. The staff were nice and things were reasonably priced. The ribs, pork sliders and frozen mojitos were good.

“Great spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Cool place, friendly staff, great tunes, creative/strong drinks, tasty food (ribs!), and fantastic location…what more do you need? Love going to the Rooster…highly recommended by someone who's no stranger to Shanghai's social scene!

“I lIke the place, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Its not amazing, particularly not for food.
It's OK standard bar fare, that may be a notch above other places on Yongkang Lu.

That said, if you have been drinking down Yongkang, the option of kebabs, pies and fish and chips offered by some of the other places might be more to your liking

take the reviews below (all posted in a 24 hour period), with a pinch of salt!

“Yongkang's finest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

The Rooster has been serving great, reasonably priced drinks in a laid back environment for almost two years now. The pulled pork sandwiches are awesome, and the new ribs and other food items are proving to be just as good. The owner, staff, and customers are all really friendly, and it remains one of the best spots in Shanghai to kick off your evening or get some solid day drinking in.

“Super friendly, great drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

The Rooster is a small place on Yongkang Lu bar street. This street is mostly bars and restaurants frequented by foreigners, so it's a good option in Shanghai if you want English speakers (or French speakers for that matter) and Western food.
This bar is my favourite on the strip for it's friendly staff and great selection of mixed drinks.
