A bit hard to find. Across from KFC, take a left after passing china construction bank. Very friendly owner. Western menu of burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, english breakfast. Fair prices. We had a Jacked Up burger and the chicken sandwich. Portions were large and good... for Lijiang. But certainly not the best burger in China if you've been to Beijing or Shanghai! Chicken sandwich was OK, a bit gooey as the mayonnaise was too warm. Worth a visit if you're craving western food or a clean restaurant - not necessarily easy to find. Though we thought Prague Cafe was the best western restaurant in town for food, coffee, cleanliness, atmosphere, though it's not a bar - more of a coffee shop/breakfast and lunch/dinner place.

We went to this place to watch some football on TV, and the owner was helpful, but the patrons . . . let's just say that some are 'special'.
If you need to watch a game on TV, they seem to gather to this, but otherwise a strange atmosphere with some weird guys hanging out there.
Tried some food, but not up to much. Keep to the beer.

This is my number 1 favorite Bar in the whole of Lijiang. Forget the centre of the old town with its crazy high prices, check this place out for good western food, (Burgers are good), stimulating conversation and excellent music...the owner Jack, has a very eclectic taste in music and his conversation is very intelligent. The fact some of the local ex-pats who live in Lijiang drink their is testament to the overall hospitality.

Its a short walk from the waterwheel, with the waterwheel and old town on your right walk up away from the new town, and up two small flights of steps, and turn left when you get to Bon Apetito (another good establishment) for Italian food. Jacks bar (as everyone locally calls it) is just 20 metres away.
