About the Snake Pit

The Snake Pit is the longest established expatriate bar in China founded in Shekou, over 20 years ago, when it was just a small fishing village. The birth of the Snake Pit was due to China’s first Joint Venture with multi-national oil drilling and rig service companies, which came from as far away as Texas, Scotland and Scandinavia. The most hardened, tough, weather-beaten engineers were sent over to start drilling in the South China Sea in the mid 80s.

Times have changed and the Snake Pit is now in the center of Shekou, with easy access to the Metro. The Pit is known as The Shekou Sports and Social Club which is now more family orientated and is the home to many clubs and organizations such as The Shekou Hash House Harriers, Snake Pit Sitting Hash, Shekou Rugby Club, and The Chubby Riders, just to name a few. The Club also raises donations by holding charity events to help local orphanages, schools and hospitals. It is from the wild beginnings of those most hardened, tough, weather-beaten engineers and their wild ways 24 years ago to what it is today – a pillar of the local community, having a membership of over 4,500 from 52 different countries. So come check out where it all began, Welcome!

The club is currently situated in Shekou, at G16, Taizi Square 2nd floor – above Pizza Hut.
