Big Bamboo Tours – Shanghai, China
About this place
Big Bamboo is a great western style sports bar with dark wood décor with good old American posters (I particularly like the poster of Jack Daniels), and a menu that will satisfies the classic western sports bar experience. Despite being a large two story bar, the space is divided into several small rooms that make the bar feel intimate. Big Bamboo is a perfect place to bring a bunch of friends and feel like you’re having your own party.
Head to Big Bamboo to catch the game of the night on TV. Those seeking some more physical entertainment should locate the the shuffle board table, darts, or the pool table. Don’t miss out on the generous Happy Hour either which features 20RMB well drinks and beers from 2-8pm everyday. Weekends tend to get pretty busy, but during the week it shouldn’t be too much trouble to pick up a game of pool or darts.
The manager is great and the waitresses are very attentive. There might even be too many waitresses, but they do their job well nonetheless. They’ll make sure you’ve always got a drink in hand.
Call ahead to make sure the game you want to watch is on TV. They have should have all the big games. If not shown live, they will at least be re-broadcasted. They even play ice hockey games once a week!
How to get there: Take Metro Line 2 to Jingan Temple station. Exit onto Nanjing Rd, and head east towards the Bund. After about 10 minutes take a left on Tongren Lu. Then take a right on Nanyang Lu, Big Bamboo is on the right side just down the block a bit. The bar is directly behind the Portman Ritz-Carlton, but it is not possible to walk through the Ritz to go to the bar.
