“Fun sports-like bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Super casual joint most similar to a US sports bar with the typical menu for the style. Burger hit the spot. It was fun to kick back and watch folks from all over the world hang out (Spaniards to my left, Chinese to my right, and Americans behind me). Fun time.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I can highly recommend Shanghai Brewery - I didn't know there were two locations in Shanghai, I went to the newer one in the French district. It's massive and packed with ex pats. Food and drinks were fabulous.

“Okay but too much smoke”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Went for after work, preholiday gathering.
The service was good, drinks cheap and good enough for me to order more than usual. The appetizers were great and served fast and hot.
The downfall to many smokers. Should have put on a jacket and sat outside. Inside for someone who doesn't handle smoke well, is quite difficult to manage.
