Direct from SmartShanghai‘s newly spruced up website comes this piece of bar news: “The British Bulldog … has completed their renovations and is (soft) open for your drinking needs. Apparently these renovations were quite intense with a new second floor terrace, a new DJ booth, and sports relegated to their third floor with a private viewing room for you and your ‘mates.'” SmSh also reports (in The Wire, which you can’t link to directly for some reason?) that a big U.S. Independence Day party is planned. (The Brits celebrate it too you know: good riddance!) Perhaps we’ll reserve judgment on why our favourite sports bar is trying to banish the footy upstairs until then. No answer on their “Dog and Bone“, so if you head down to the Bulldog before July 4th, you do so at your own risk.
