The best search engine for finding random bars is Where the Fuck Should I Go for Drinks, which China watcher and delightful alcoholic* Ray Kwong helpfully notes “even works in China.” But how well does it work? We gave it a try, and results included:
Outback Steakhouse, Flying Internet Bar, and Bar 梦境酒吧 aren’t exactly our first, second, and third choices to get on our tipple. Other results include Binghuogu Pub and Laiwei Bar, which apparently have Google Plus pages.
But don’t despair! Further searches — by which we mean clicking the “No, that place looks like shit” button…
– yielded results such as The Local, Alfa, The Tree, and Bar Blu. Also, Tun Bar and Vics showed up… eh, at least there’s name recognition.
But you know what? Since we’re expats, we’ll probably just end up at Great Leap. Sigh.
Note: the website is powered by Google, so it works best with a VPN on. Also try: Where the Fuck Should I Go To Eat?
