Hi jr625, I have a good (European) friend who has worked for them for about one year and he speaks quite highly of them. He seems to have been treated quite well in terms of pay and visa. I'll let him know about your query and hopefully he can contribute to this thread and further enlighten us all. Cheers, Gary
The Underground Bar is a bit difficult to find as it is nestled between the much larger clubs but if you know the club street at Jiu Yan Qiao, you should be ok. The bar is between Babi II and 1855, in the tunnel behind the Havana Cigar shop. There is also a map on the location page of the website http://undergroundchengdu.com Best wishes, Gary
The burgers at the Underground are a big hit. Here are a couple of independent reviews:
"The burgers are the best in town, and everything is top notch" http://www.foodspotting.com/reviews/415843
"I have full confidence in saying that this will be the best burger in Chengdu and potentially all of China and maybe even the continent of Asia" http://westerneater.wordpress.com/[...]
The Underground Bar is having a 'Black and White' costume party (not compulsory) with drink promotions and prize raffle along with the usual great music, fun atmosphere and new year frolics. Starts at 9pm but, of course, you can get well fed beforehand with burgers, pies, panninis, casseroles, etc and enjoy buy one beer, get one beer free between 5pm and 8pm.
The Underground will have a 3-course Christmas Dinner with a free glass of red/white wine for 138RMB.
There will be two sittings on Saturday 25th December: from 12noon-3pm and 5pm-8pm. Places are limited so booking early is important.
The 3 courses comprise of Pumpkin Soup, Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings and Desert.
Book by calling 02885294142 or 15208262995. You can also pop into the Underground and book directly.
I won't get embroiled in this discussion. I just wanted to say that the Underground is having a Halloween night (Saturday 30th) and there are a lot of special promotions for people in costume, including free beer and up to 40% discount on cocktails and whisky. The extra-special offers are before 9pm but there will be a lot of discounts and partying throughout the night.
The Underground Bar and Restaurant (which has only very recently started selling food) will be doing a full Christmas dinner (Turkey and trimmings). The head chef is excellent and has a fantastic portfolio having been sous chef at a number of 5* hotels.
Moreover, you can also get fish and chips, pie and chips, beef and red wine casserole, chilli-con-carne and much more - all day, everyday.
Hope this helps.
