“Go for the music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

This is mostly a club and secondarily a restaurant. It depends who is playing that evening. You're not going to notice the food but if there's a good act onstage, everything is wonderful!

“Rockin'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Able to reserve a table in main music area near stage. Excellent blues band, even folks dancing a bit. Good beers, drinks and bar food. They have a real menu and restaurant as well, but we have not experienced as yet. Good bar food, drinks and music. Service OK. Nice old house location off The Bund.

“Good spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Pretty solid spot near the French Concession. Had a few too many drinks here a couple nights! Very good whiskeys, and at a reasonable price. Live music as well, playing some pretty good blues the nights we went. Also, a guy sells some decent cigars down the road for 5RMB (you are allowed to smoke inside the club). Definitely recommend it.

“Live blues!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Very nice place not far from the Bund to hang out and see awesome musicians.
I never had food there, so I can't say anything about that. Drinks are good that's for sure, good choice of wiskey's :)
It fills up quite quickly on weekend nights, so I would suggest going earlier OR make friends with owners, musicians and staff to always have a corner to sit. ;-)
