Las Posadas Christmas Party was the best :) With delicious tamales and great music. I have always found Pistolera very friendly atmosphere and didn''t disappointed me even in that special occasion.

Went there with friends after sports, service was average as it seems only some waiters can speak English but you can see they are trying. I spilled part of my drink after getting grazed by a hot dish served at our table; no harm done and I said nothing but the waiter took it upon himself to replace my drink... More

Lucky to not miss Game 7 of the World Series - just arrived to Shanghai night before - found out about Big Bamboo, directly behind our hotel, during breakfast! Since then, we've dropped in for catching a piece of the action of NFL, NBA, and NHL games throughout our stay with other enthusiastic sport fans here! Great atmosphere; oh so... More

As I live in Changzhou, Mexican food is hard to come by, and haven't been able to leave there in quite some time. Today, I had the chance to go to Shanghai and chose to hit the Big Bamboo. I hadn't been there in over a year. A few things have changed, most notably the prices. They have gone up... More

Title says it all. Been here a few times. They had rugby, golf, Olympics on TV, but still managed to get the EPL on for.me in the side room. Service was a little slow, but it is a busy place so understandably so. Had a hot beef sandwich with fried and gravy, was as good as home. Very helpful staff... More

Over the last few years it's fair to say I've been a regular here. In my opinion it's the most friendly bar you could visit in Shanghai. It's great for expats, I've made some good friends in here over the years. The staff are second-to-none, it's the best service I've ever experienced. Finally I should mention the burgers...if nothing else,... More

I certainly haven't been to every burger joint in Shanghai, but Big Bamboo serves a real good one. Beer is cold and sports on TV. Wait staff is excellent and very friendly, good enough with English. Visited twice on this trip and great both times. In a good neighborhood, plenty of taxis.

Thank Scott C

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
