Best Places for Beer in Shanghai

1
Yongkang Road

Yongkang Road

Yongkang Road (Yongkang Lu) never disappoints. Shanghai’s cheap and cheerful bar street offers a lot to beer lovers. Choose an imported bottle from Dean’s Bottle Shop or CheersIn to enjoy on the sidewalk party, or cozy up with a draft beer at one of the tables at Tap House. Or take advantage of the discounted Belgian beers during the boisterous happy hour at Le Café des Stagiaires.

Boxing Cat Brewery

Boxing Cat Brewery

Boxing Cat Brewery is the city’s leading microbrewery serving American comfort food with a Southwestern touch (think jalapeno corn bread and pulled pork quesadillas). But Boxing Cat’s biggest ticket is a sensational selection of their own crafted beers—German lagers, British ales, and nouveau American beers.

The Brew

The Brew

The Brew is the bar at The Kerry Hotel, a luxury business hotel in between the swanky suburbs and CBD of Pudong district. This modern, airy Australian-designed bar brews its own specialty beers onsite by international beer masters and the kitchen serves topnotch versions of greasy pub favorites. With a nice terrace and nightly live music, this stylish sports bar attracts young families as well as business travelers from the nearby convention center.

Jackie’s Beernest

Jackie’s Beernest

Jackie is Shanghai’s premier beer aficionado with a quiet cult following. In 2008 the avid beer lover opened his hole-in-the-wall Beer Nest with just a few seats. Popularity grew, and the little joint has since moved to a slightly larger—but still charmingly seedy—space two doors down.

Tap House

Tap House

The Tap House is a popular draft beer bar that just opened a second location with an expansive terrace and handsome décor in Jing’an district. The bar’s owners boast that their new spot has Shanghai’s largest collection of draft beer on tap. With a lot of international offices nearby, it’s already become a prime place for after-work drinks that last long after the sun goes down.
