Although I have lived in Chengdu for almost a year, I had never heard of this bar. My girlfriend found out about it on a Chinese website. I thought I would give it a whirl and went there the first night of the world cup. I just don’t understand why this bar is not more well-known. It is a great place. When I went it was pretty busy and I got a seat upstairs with a great view of both the LCD TV and the big screen. Actually I only intended going in for the first game, but ended up staying till 5am. It is a genuinely mixed bar and I agree with one of the other reviewers (there is no sleaze and a real warmth).
The atmosphere was very friendly and I could not have asked for more for the football in terms of comfort and good, inexpensive (and very cold) beer. Later that night I spoke to one of the owners, Gary. He is a sound bloke. I asked him why his bar is not more well-known in the city. He told me it has only been open 6 months and they are still getting to grips with the marketing but the bar is building-up very well. I hope so as this, for me, is a treasure in Chengdu and I for one will be making it my regular haunt from now on.
