Saturday Night in Shekou – Hookah pipes at Jordans, cold beers in Cheers and dancing in seaworld

Saturday Night in Shekou – Hookah pipes at Jordans, cold beers in Cheers and dancing in seaworldOn Saturday evening I was invited to Jordan’s bar in Shekou to try their hookah pipes. I tried the delicious apple and washed it down with a pint of lager. I loved the experience and will definitely be back for more. A hookah for the evening will set you back 65rmb and 45rmb for refills, great value.

After Jordans we went to Cheers for some ice cold tiger beer. Local pillar of society Marcus was on hand to treat us to delicious fajitas and more ice cold beer than my head could handle. Cheers pride themselves on serving great food and I certainly recommend the fajitas. Cheers show a great variety of live sport include NFL, NBA and soccer.

Next we went to Sea world to check out the construction work!!! The only bars I could see which were open were The Terrace and X-Ta-Sea. We had a few drinks in X-Ta-Sea in the company of boss Justin and his beautiful waitress’s before checking out the dance floor in the Terrace where King of music in Shenzhen Leon was blasting out wonderful vocals as usual.

  1. This website is turning into a joke.

    The two bars in the headline are owned by one of the owners of this website and it also claims that another of the owners is a “local pillar of society”.

    Absolute nonsense. There is no impartiality in this article. This site just caters to the advertising needs of the owners. Not to mention self-proclaimed titles. This is simply embarrassing.

    • Tommy – as one of the owners of Cheers and Jordans I’d like to reply to your comment. Shenzhen Standard’s purpose is to promote culture and commerce in Shenzhen. On the culture side we have been hosting writing competitions and giving prizes at International Schools in town (QSI/SIS) and we are always looking for more ways to promote these events.

      We also support SACS/SWIC, biking and hiking trips, etc. On the commerce side, we promote local business – both our own as well as others – and both current advertisers and non-advertisers. Naturally those who advertise on our site send us more information to post about their events and naturally we visit those establishments more often to take photos, write articles etc.

      However any organization in town (commercial and non-commercial) is able to submit content via the Contribute link. Non-profit organizations also get free advertising on the site. We also go out of our way to provide services to the community such as the Metro Map which we spent a lot of time and resources to create. The list goes on…

      Regarding the comment on the “local pillar of society”, that was more of a friendly joke and I’m sorry you don’t have a sense of humor to appreciate that. However in all fairness to Marcus, running several local businesses, contributing lots of money and time to charity and supporting arts & culture through Aulon in particular – why can’t that be considered a pillar?

      Anyways, thanks for your comment and I hope you get value out of the Shenzhen Standard in the future and heck, maybe even become a contributor! After all, the best way to improve the platform is to have more people in the community contributing useful content, right?
