A cozy atmosphere, decent food, live music and cheap margaritas make Behind the Wall a popular hang-out, especially with the foreign student population. Inside, Behind the Wall’s three rooms are linked by over-sized arched doorways, and provide seating for groups of two to ten. Mexican, Latin and Greek cuisine is served. The drink menu is varied and not too expensive by Nanjing standards - margaritas are served for only 15 Yuan from Sunday to Thursday. Live music is played on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from about 8:00pm to 11:00pm.
Note: “Behind the Wall” is sometimes referred to by the English translation of its Chinese name: “Answer”.
How to Get There
Behind the Wall is located near the Nanjing University Campus just off of Shanghai Lu. From Shanghai Lu, turn into the small Nanxiu Cun (南秀村, nánxiùcūn) and look to the left. It is up the stairs that lead behind the wall of the alley side. Swede & Kraut Restaurant is a little further down the alley.
