In a city where the passing of time is so defined by its nightlife scene, we may well be on the cusp of the age of 'The Turtle'. The dream child of a team of Kunming nightlife veterans, 'The Turtle' promises to be a gamechanger.
With well priced, wide section of quality bottled/draft beer and cocktails, a combination of sports coverage on five screens, generously sized stage with daily live music, pool table, darts, foosball and more, this bar might well have it all. But, as with all great establishments, 'The Turtle' hopes to become far more than the sum of its parts. Watch this place for the next chapter in Kunming folklore!
Very nice place. I liked the environment and the drinks were fairly priced. Great music, with live stage, and good activities such as fussball and snooker. A good concept for making customers coming back.
As a late night spot, it's an available follow-on to other watering holes, as well as a music-on dive bar. If you're completely wasted or there's a good act it might be enjoyable, but don't get too comfortable. Unfortunately I came here to report that I had a horrific experience being verbally and physically abused by the management ... literally they threw things at me ... I've known them for a long time, and literally the last time I saw the owner I was doing him a favor... so to be abused physically and verbally at the place by the management defies logic ... needless to say I shan't be returning. There are better and more deserving destinations for your patronage. Strongly suggest checking out Barfly around the corner, a bar for adults and the young at heart, with superior beer and without the noise issues or nut-job management.
Good beer, live music every night. crowded on weekends, nice pool table and foosball I wish there was more food, try the yunnan style fries, yummy
The staff are great and the beer selection very nice. Having live music every night is ambitious, and so far the results have been far better and more consistently good than I could've expected.
