The Book Bar

I found this cool little place when doing market research with my boss. Its called the Book Bar.

The Book Bar is located in New Book City (the last stop of the metro line 4; you can transfer at Hui Zhan Zhong Xin) on the eastern side of the building.

When you enter, it is littered with Chinese literature and wine, glorious wine!! The place is decorated with an oriental feel, tea beds, sofas, low coffee tables and TV’s.

The crowd that frequents this place are very civilised and small in number. It’s usually the quiet young upper class  Chinese.

Its a pretty cool place to take a date after dinner. If you take your own wine, they charge around 50rmb for corkage fees per bottle.

  1. Well Actually yes there is, If you catch the metro to Sha Nian Gong, there is a large english book store there. Prices are on par with HK but the selection is not as good as HK.

    Also there is a “seconds” Book store in Hua Qiang Bei, next to “mother earth” market that seels a great range of english books and board games for reasonable prices.

  2. Scott, is there any place in Shenzhen that has a decent selection of English books?
