I clearly came to this place expecting too much. Based on previous reviews mentioning beers on tap, the place being foreign owned plus photos of food that looked delicious, I had high expectations. First impressions were simply disappointing though: they no longer have any draught...beers (only bottled beers now), the food menu is rather limited (some pizzas and pasta but nothing that tempted me, food shown on photos on TripAdvisor - for example what looks like a delicious mushroom avocado bruschetta - is nowhere on the menu etc.). Clumsy ordering process (QR codes on the table leading to software designed for home delivery, staff then suggesting just to order inside without using the code). The impression I got (without being sure) is that there has been a change of management and this is now a Chinese style bar like many others. Having said that, the bottled beer and snack I ordered were pretty nice, the view from the balcony is lovely and staff were friendly. So I left pretty satisfied after all and might even come back. Just don't expect too much.More

Lovely little bar with a selection of craft beers and reasonably-priced cocktails (with good alcohol). The outside deck has a great view of the river and the opposite bank is lit up at night which is pretty. Various weekly events including a quiz night on...a Thursday and jam session on a Friday.More

One of our favorite spots to eat. The food was delicious, coffee was strong and the cocktails were fantastic. Overlooked the Li River and set just out of town so was super relaxed and peaceful with a stunning outlook. Very cool atmosphere and lovely staff.

Well worth seeking out. Not far from West Street. Just walk along the river until you reach the covered walkway to the ferry jetty. Its about a 1min walk under the covered section. Brilliant beer selection, amazing for China. Fantastic staff. Our only problem was...the annoyingly loud and self important Americans in the corner.. Maybe the same ones from the review in February.. Don't let it put you off though.More

After drinking the weak flavourless Chinese beers for a week, this bar was a great find. It offered 10 draught craft ales plus numerous bottles and cabs with various flavours and strengths. The prices are from 30-40 ¥ for a large glass(pint). My wife and...I tried 4 all were good quality. The lady owner spoke very good English and also had a lovely dog. The decking area has large fans to keep you cool and overlooks the River. You can find the bar 10 minutes walk from the top/bottom end of West Street just follow the river until you arrive to a covered road (it will make sense)More

Only Western bar in the nearby area. It’s just OK, pizza wasn’t bad but overall the place is pretty grungy. Wouldn’t come back.

Look, West Street is totally commercial now. You go there, it's all chain shops with night clubs so loud you have text using your phones just to talk to someone. Demo Bar has some of the best pizza in Yangshuo, with craft beer and a...modest drink menu. Plus it's right along the river with a gorgeous view. You've got the mountains and the river right there to look at as you eat. Plus on Sundays, they have board game nights! Tired after a long day of climbing rocks or bicycling in the countryside, come on down and enjoy good beer, good pizza, and a game or two.More

Well, it was low season, so that's why 2 stars vs a probably deserved 1 star. Only 3 beers available, I think they have a total of 10 taps, but the rest were out of stock. What we had was good though, better than the...local options at any rate. I ordered a Pepperoni pizza after getting recommendations from the hotel. I should have known it was going to be a problem when they had to check to see if they had any left. When I took a bite, it was clear that the meat was long past peak freshness. Not going to say spoiled, but definitely over the hill. To top it off, stereotypical loud American held forth in the middle of the room at full volume the whole time. We made as quick an exit as possible.More
