This bar has an exceptionally unique and intimate atmosphere in an old heritage building in the middle of Tianzifang. The owner, Gavin, is a super kind and hospitable man who is always up for a chat and runs it with his family. They generally have super tasteful music for ambience most of the time as well. They have pretty solid drink deals with 30 rmb classic mixers and Draft beers, so it's pretty good for a session. Food is also top quality - even though it's a tad on the pricey side, it is worth it. Highly recommend for dates, solo study, and group sessions.

I was wandering through the Tian Zi Fang market and came across this eclectic bar/restaurant. It looked so inviting I had to stop. I immediately noticed the music. It was excellent and a perfect match for the atmosphere. I ordered a lemongrass mojito which was very good and I was so happy hanging out that I ordered cheese quesadillas, also good. The service was friendly. It was a fun find!

Food was fine. Nicosie Salad for me and burger for my boyfriend. They gave us free wifi. Service was good. and location really nice to be a bar inside Tian Zi Fang Area.
I like it and I suggest to eat there.

I was on a tour with some free time to explore TZF. Randomly ducked into here to grab some food (pizza was great and shared between three people). The reason I wanted to write the review is because it started pouring rain while we were there and we didn't have an umbrella. However to our dismay a man, whom I presume is the owner, out of pure benevolence handed one to us to use. What a guy! Will be going back to have more pizza soon :)

This place is in the middle of a bustling little touristy market complex, right across the road from Dapuqiao Station (Line 9).

Loved the vibe and the quirky decor, the menu wasn't huge, but solid - pizza, pasta, enchiladas, sandwiches... what we did have was really good, and the cocktails were tasty, packed a punch and were cheap as chips. Try the Rambler, the signature drink - berry flavoured and strong. We stayed here for a few hours, eating, drinking and planning our next few destinations.

The owner speaks English very well, and was happy to have a chat to us, give us some shopping and sightseeing tips, and give us a few shots on the house to boot!

This isn't an 'authentic, traditional' Chinese experience, but it's certainly a great place to while away a few hours as your recoup your energy from running around Shanghai! We'll definitely be coming back here.

Such a quaint place. Great afternoon on the outdoor patio. Very personable owner creates an almost familial atmosphere. Highly recommend a stop here when visiting the Tianzifang area.

Had an excellent night at the Rambler! Gavin was a great person to talk with and loved getting to learn more about Shanghai, and his hometown of Guilin. Thank you for the great chat!

Good drinks and good times at this tucked away spot in Tian Zi Fang in the city of Shanghai. Worth seeking out.
