If you want a place to get drunk and we'll get drunk this is a good place it's pretty cheap .the bath rooms are dark and scary but it's a bathroom so who cares. Drink up play pool and pass the out!

One of my favourite places to chill out in Nanjing. Great foods prepared by young owner, Marcus and a good selection of cocktails.

Secco is great place to go out for dinner and beers. Its by far the best place to go out for me in Nanjing, although its a little far out. The Boss is a nice german guy who likes to invite his guests for a round of free shots. He is also the chef and makes some great Pizzas and... More

Good place for live sports I was there several times for the World Cup, nice and big place. They got many big screens including a huge one. Good place to watch sports and have a few drinks with friends. Btw, I love the German draft beers there, especially Bitburger, nice pilsner.

First time here and met some good fun ppl. The food was surprisingly good, and glad they got a big cocktail menu, i love it! The bartender speaks good english, which really comforted me... and friendly of cause. It'll be my spot.

Secco is fast becoming one of my favourite bars in Nanjing. If it weren't so far away from the regular foreigner haunts (Shanghai Road and 1912), it would almost certainly be Nanjing's most popular expat bar. Why? 1). Good strong drinks at good prices: No dodgy fake alcohol and prices that are very reasonable. Beers and cocktails alike are good... More

Basic mixed drinks are affordable (25rmb for gin&tonic) and strong! Feels like real alcohol which is a change from other venues I frequent in Nanjing. My delight at the drinks and the unique venue (open, lots of space) explain my rating. Food seemed a bit pricey on the menu, but prices on par with other slightly upscale western restaurants in...

The old Secco Bar is closed. I was sorely dissapointed as it was the ideal venue after eating at the Tairo next door. The Hotel did warn us that it was closed but we hoped anyway. Instaed we went to 1912.... I would recommend the manager to get active on Tripadvisor as well as contacting all the hotels as this... More

Secco moved from a beautiful location near the Xuanwu gate to this rather odd place. It is not near any other night life spots (if any exists in Nanjing). I am not sure if it is still managed by the same owners, the character seemed to have changed quite a bit. The place it self looks very good insider. It... More
