The Snake pit "Shekou Sports and Social Club"

Our History

The first established expatriate bar in China founded in Shekou, over  30 years ago, when it was just a small fishing village. The birth of the Snake Pit was due to China’s first Joint Venture with multi-national oil drilling and rig service companies, which came from as far away as Texas, Scotland and Scandinavia. The most hardened, tough, weather-beaten engineers were sent over to start drilling in the South China Sea in the mid 80s. Read more »

With 32 taps, NBeerPub Shenzhen will offer not only all of our own beers, including limited editions, seasonals and our newest barrel-aged creations. But up to a dozen taps will continue our mission to promote Chinese craft beer as a whole with the best selections nationwide - this time with a focus on southern China. And not to worry - a carefully curated selection of world class imported craft beers will also find their way onto these tap handles!

We would nonetheless be remiss if we didn't also include a premium selection of bottled beers, plus a steadfast commitment to accompany your drinks with our tasty pub grub offerings!  The bustling metropolis of Shenzhen deserves nothing less!

Top Places to Go for Trivia Night
Where do you find a bar or restaurant doing trivia night?

Many times when you're living in a big city or visiting a big city it becomes hard (sometimes) to find a great spot to mingle and make new friends. Shenzhen has become a great hub full of weekly restaurant events, white collar mingles, beach parties, pool parties – and the list goes on. These types of events are great when you're planning to go out with some friends, however, if you are a last minute planner who decides at the end of the day to find somewhere fun to mix and mingle, quiz nights are for you. Luckily, there is a growing community of quiz night locations all over Shenzhen that is perfect for making new friends, winning great prizes or enjoying quiz night specials. Read more »

TAPS Brings a Gastro Pub, Brewery, Roasterie Fusion to Shenzhen China

The Need for Unique Bar Experience for the Shenzhen Area

Bars and Pubs are not necessarily a new thing to Shenzhen and if you are going to start a business in the alcohol industry, you will quickly find that your competition is a vast amount of locations within 5 square miles – all competing for the same customers and trying to find their niche audience. That said, not just any bar can survive in Shenzhen without a unique niche. Luckily, TAPS has a unique culture that combines a brewery with fresh in - house roasted coffee and a chef-driven kitchen. This brings not only a location that serves home-brewed drinks but has a very diverse food menu and possibly some of the best coffee you’ll ever try in the Futian area. Read more »

Which pub in Shenzhen will show the WC 2014 football games?

I would like to know which pub in cocopark or so (mixC or Citic Plazza) will show the WC 2014 football games?


Worst treatment of a Good Customer

   I have to write about a very unpleasant time that I had at a local pub in Shekou. I won't say their name but I will say that the letters G & D are in the name of this establishment.

Now... let me begin by saying that I was a regular and loyal Monday night customer at this "hang-out" because the Western food was good,the waitresses were VERY nice and Monday was their two for one food special. Buy something and get a second item of equal or lesser value for free.
