This friendly bar, run by a man who’s a dab hand with a pool cue, has free pool, free table football, free wifi and reasonably cheap drinks (beers from ¥15). In fact, the most expensive thing here is the fine you have to pay (¥200!) if you poo in the toilet (it blocks the pipes apparently).
You can even *earn* money here (as long as you’re good at pool) by entering the Monday night pool tournament (¥30 to play; winner takes home ¥300).
If you don’t fancy the ball games, there’s upstairs seating which overlooks the rest of the bar.
Other bars near here include Reef and If Bar. There are dozens of eating options on this street. Lingdian Beef Wonton isn’t the best of them, but is handy as it’s open 24 hours.
