As I am settling down in Da Hu, I found a little bar that I shall make it my Chill HQ.
Initially, as per my SOP, I would seek out an Irish Pub but the nearest one that I can find was quite a distance away.
A friend brought me to this one and I made new friends instantly.
I like the cosiness of the place and the prices are not expensive compared to the clubbing sites along the bund where a night of partying can easily set you back by 4-figures. SGD.
They open daily from 1pm which is perfect for a lazy afternoon with a book.
It's a tiny bar with just a bar counter and just 4 tables.
Weekends are about 80% full with everybody knowing everybody else.
I was there last Sunday and it was a slow afternoon of just 3 other customers and a pooch.
The dog probably make a lousy guard dog as she is very friendly to everyone including me who at the time was a complete stranger.
So there I was, taking it easy with a Guinness and a book while the dog laid quietly under my chair snoozing the afternoon away.
