Hey Chongqing, we're going through some changes here at CQScene and we're ready to unveil a small one for you today! In an effort to make all the cool bars, restaurants and events we post here more accessible to you, we started working on a small listings section. It's not much, but the essentials are there and we will be updating daily. If you have any location you want us to put up, let us know in the comments. We'll be glad to oblige!
For now, all you have to do is type a few keywords in the search bar on the main page. Examples: bar, restaurant, cafe or the name of the place you're looking for. You can also put in the name of your district and search from there...
The results will appear as if you were searching for articles, look for the ones marked “Location”. They all contain directions, a dropoff point for your taxi driver and a short review if you don't know what to expect... Simply open the link and copy everything on your smartphone, you rich bastard.
"Ohhh.. it big" and she is not the only one who said it, when i asked a patron before i entered the so called Big Pizza. As usual a skeptic i was, as i have seen, been and tasted what is supposed to be, but cant come close to being American style pizza. unlike most things CQ Big Pizza does it bigg, American style big! and its not the very authentic tasting American pizza that does it , but its variety and service. Boasting an all you can drink beer and wine, a good size salad bar and selection of meats, veggies and side dishes that cater to foreign and local tastes a like, it is not hard to see why it is an easy choice for one CQSCENE'S best of Chongqing. So if you find yourself in Shapingba's san xia guang chang around lunch [45 RMB] or dinner [45 RMB] drop in to capital retail on the 4th floor. Don't forget to bring an empty stomach and pick up a CQSCENE sticker while your at it.
