Prince: Your New Neighborhood Bar In Shuiwan

Prince bar has a lot of things going for it. It is located just a few minutes walk from Shuiwan metro station. Surrounded by offices and apartments, it could be the neighborhood bar that the area has been crying out for. The bar has an open wooden decking with stylish white umbrellas offering cover. There are seats up at the bar and plenty of tables too. Taking a look around, I’m reminded of the neighborhood bars you find in places like Kennedy Town in Hong Kong.

For a snug and small bar, Prince has a wide selection when it comes to beer. There are 20 taps promoting both local and international craft brewers, from Catfish Brewing Co., from Hangzhou to Stone Brewing from California. They also have fridges full of bottled beer, offering an even wider selection from around the world. Local efforts from Liberty Brewing Co. and Bionic Brew come highly recommended.

I had come to Prince expecting good beer. What I didn’t expect was for the BBQ food to be as amazing as it was. All the meat and vegetables are fresh, with the chickens prepared earlier that same day, and they use an interesting mix of seasonings and sauces when barbecuing. The final result is less Chinese Street BBQ and more Japanese Yakitori.

Prince has all the makings of a great neighborhood bar; right next to the subway, a terrace view, a large selection of rotating taps and bottles, and some of the best BBQ around.

Vintage Bar outdoor garden

Director of Food and Beverage from the Wyndham Grand, Shenzhen, Roy Huang has worked in the hospitality industry for more than 15 years and joined this hotel about 2 years ago. He shared with us his aim is to have the best outdoor bar in Futian CBD, and he understands that the key element is staff. To that end, all new staff have at least two whole day’s training in the first month before they are assigned to the appropriate position to provide quality service. All employees also have training once a month to ensure the highest standards are maintained. This process is obviously working as there has been an excellent retention of staff since opening.Roy Huang, DFB

The Vintage Bar and attached open-air garden is a stylish setting, suitable for any event. The Wyndham Grand is in an ideal location in central Futian, easy to get to by metro (Gangxia station) or by taxi. A warm welcome will greet you as you enter the foyer and on your left you will see the distinctive sign of Vintage Bar. A list of match dates and times will be on display in the entrance to the bar, so you can keep track of who is playing when. Due to the time difference between here and Russia, some of the matches will be on well past midnight; however, Vintage Bar – and the barbeque – will stay open until the last match finishes each night.World Cup BBQ

Chomping on Xinjiang Yangrouchuan’r in Shenzhen

Every couple months I have to go to get lamb BBQ (羊肉串) at my preferred Xinjiang restaurant. Yidigudeqing Restaurant is located in the Honey Lake holiday village restaurant area. The restaurant has a variety of lamb dishes and key being the lamb skewers. The restaurant is organized into yurts. One main public one and other private dining rooms.

Lamb dumplings great with vinegar

Fried bread and Lamb

The main dining room is usually a good choice even on the weekends you don’t have to wait for a table. The place is easiest to find if you get the taxi driver to drop you off at the back of Honey Lake holiday village. Of course you can take the metro too and walk all he way through to the back.
