turns out there is a second Knuckles Bar at 568 Shaoshan Road, This review is for this. We intended to go to the other one but Didi only had the address for this one, so this is where we ended up. Great bar, great food...and excellent service. No complaints other than only bottled beer, they really ought to have at least Tsingtao on tap as a minimum. We had pizza, which was fresh and delicious, they have a nice pizza oven. The waiter was top notch, friendly & efficient.More

DON’T BE FOOLED. This restaurant is definitely still open. I don’t know why TripAdvisor says it’s closed. Can go on their main website and call the store phone number. I will definitely let the staff know next time I go there to update their information...on here. Anyways , food is amazing! I’ve been here 3 times . And it’s always good. Live music also! Good place for a first time date or with friends. I recommend the Chicken quesadilla ask for the guacamole and mango spread.More

I came here the first time in 2018 to watch a football world cup match and was surprised that there is such a nice western bar in the remote Huangdao. Since then I always go here when in town and bring my colleagues. The western...food is well done, my favorite is the pizza that I also often order for delivery to my hotel room. Also there is a great choice of beers, with some on tap, I usually go for the Asahi. In the evening, there is a great cover band that doesn't play the mainstream but has a portfolio of many old rock songs. They are great and are a joy to listen to. When you are in the area, definitely go here for a beer, you will enjoy!More

Great bar for meeting fellow westerners. Listen to live music via the Filipino band. Good food and draught beer highly recommended.

Great music provided by the resident Filipino band which will get you dancing on the large dance floor, good selection of sport on around 10 different TV's. Nice pool table at the side of the bar and the bar staff are good and friendly and...always there to take your order. Good mixture of local Chinese and Foreign customers. Food is OK, not great and mainly western, portions are large.More

Was kicked out for using an electronic cigarette inside, despite the fact there was only myself and one other customer in the entire bar, so it wasn't even full. Not even close. They allow people to smoke cigarettes inside and the bar ends up filled...with so much smoke on Friday and Saturday nights you can't even see across the room, but somehow one person vaping an electronic cigarette is a problem. Utterly bizarre especially since e-cigarette vapor completely evaporates within 5 minutes while cigarette smoke lingers for at least 30-45 minutes. Won't be back to this establishment again.More

Knuckles bar is one and the only option I managed to find the cold Chinese city of Huangdao. Though Qingdao has a lot of option for foreigners same cannot be said for Huangdao. Knuckles Sports Bar is a nice gem of a bar which plays...Live music and is meeting pot for shipping professionals working in Huangdao. I found the place to be very lively and the staff to be very courteous and the finger food was also very good. I would surely recommend this place for the live music and the lively atmosphere.More

Huangdao is far from my house, about an hour and a half, but whenever I am in town, I stop in. The food is great. The chicken quesadilla is superb, would fit in anywhere in America. Wonderful pizzas, french fries and a whole lot more....The staff and owner are very helpful, friendly, and nice.More
