This is the only bar in China that I have found that makes a decent Martini. The home brew is generally good.
This is a great place to hang our with friends - it has a coffee house feel. Most evenings there is a singer with an acoustic guitar.
There is a small pool table too.
I tried their food once. They have a very simple menu, but I think they must have a one burner stove. Snacks for four people took two hours.
Come her for the drinks and atmosphere, not the food.

If this is a top place for Expats in Changshu, I'm going back to Shanghai. I was disappointed in the food and micro-brew, but I may expect too much. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Best wings in Changshu. Hands-down the only place to get a decent cocktail locally, which is surprising given the casual decor and atmosphere of the place. Excellent Bloody Marys, Margaritas and Martinis.

If you are new to Changshu this is the first place you want to go to meet locals and expats. Mel, Kev and Phil who run the place move at their own pace but they're really friendly and will introduce you to people and tell you about the city.

The food is not gourmet but it will instantly cure you of any Western homesickness. The burgers and sandwiches are just like your aunt makes. Unpretentious, very satisfying and great value.

Things often pick up in the evening and you can expect to find locals and expats there on just about any night of the week.
