Group Description

Strive to document and honour the Bars and Cafes of China; steadfastly stick to the path of Chinese bar culture and society!

This Flickr group exists to record China's multitude of cozy cafes and welcoming bars: from Hong Kong and Macao in the south to Nei Mongol and Heilongjiang in the north, and from Taiwan in the east to Xinjiang and Tibet in the west.

Please post your *best* shots only: this group is not the place for your hundreds of "happy snaps" of a big night out (although the occasional photograph of a big night out is most welcome, so long as it is one of your best!)

Post good photos of the bars and cafes themselves, the beverages and snacks they offer, happy faces and good times.

This group is all about hedonism. Noone needs bars or cafes, but almost everyone gets pleasure from them. This group is about sharing the pleasures!

Please think about your composition, lighting and subject. If you can include the laoban or staff in your photos, all the better.

As a documentary group, please include the name and location of the premises in your photo description. Walking/driving/subway/bus directions are a great addition.


By adding the following tags to your photos you can help the entire Flickr community:

The group administrators reserve the right to edit to maintain a quality photostream: we're trying to build a top-quality pool where "less is more".

Welcome to The Bars and Cafes of China!
