I did a bit of searching online in the hopes of finding some cheese (it’s been 3 weeks since I left home, and I haven’t had *any* cheese). One of the places that came up was the Oasis Bar.
It’s an “American” bar in the heart of Kunshan. It’s a tiny little place in an ally off of Bailu Lu (Bailu Middle Road), about 2km from home. Not too bad of a walk (especially now that I know where it is, and won’t be backtracking after wrong turns).
I sat and talked with an Irish businessman (who sounds more like he’s from Beloit instead of Belfast), had a couple pints of Guiness, and ate perhaps the best hamburger I’ve ever had (sorry, Annette). They import the beef from Australia, and process it themselves on-site. Absolutely delicious.
The place is tiny, but they have a pool table (free), a foosball game, and darts (I took a couple photos with my phone, but they didn’t turn out). While they call themselves a “sports bar”, it’s more of a good old-fashioned pub that happens to have various sports playing on the TVs. The stereo was playing, but was low enough that you could talk at a normal level and still be heard. It ended up being a bit of an expensive night (about 170RMB, so just under $30), but it was definitely worth it. I just might turn into a regular.
