    Brooklyn Bar & Restaurant

    Down-to-earth Wayne set up this slice of American hospitality inspired by his visits abroad. Strong, tall cocktails support a menu spanning pizza (amazing dough!), huge burgers and colourful salads. Upstairs is popular with groups of young Chinese so it can get rowdy; downstairs is more intimate, where patrons sip beers, eat up and nod their head to the spirit of New York

    Tianjin Jie Night Market

    Stretching several blocks along Tianjin Jie from the train station to a giant incense-bowl sculpture, this outdoor market, open during the evenings, offers outdoor venues to eat barbecued seafood and other snacks with a beer. There’s also a smaller (but better) market around Sanba Sq near the Carrefour Supermarket with outdoor barbecue stalls and seating, in addition to an abundance of fruit stands.

    Korea Town

    The streets around a pagoda here are filled with neon and Korean restaurants. It's a busy, fun place that can be as much about drinking soju and beer with friends as eating. Some expensive North Korean restaurants flaunt supposedly authentic North Korean folk dancers. Korea Town is known by locals and taxi drivers as Xītǎ and is 2km north of Shenyang metro along Taiyuan Jie.
