Barfly is a European pub with great English style craft beers made in the renowned Guiyang brewery Tripsmith. Our selection includes Porters, Ales and Stouts.

In addition there is a wide range of well-priced, fancy yet serious cocktails and a selection of European wines and even English Cider!

Outside seating, wooden beer station, owner-made bar top and the Rolls Royce of professional beer tap systems all make for a comfortable chilled out drinking and eating environment.

For art lovers, ask to see B1!

As for the food, one of the owners is an ace baker hailing from southern Germany, and making Pretzels, sour dough's and cakes, while her partner makes homemade sausages and authentic savoury pies, as well as other great snacks and meals from all over Europe.

We also sell frozen home made sausages pies and meats to customers to take home.

We sell English apple and juniper, German Thuringer, chilli and soon truffle sausages.

All are individually wrapped so you can easily take one out of the freezer at a time rather than a whole kilo.

We are also selling chicken and now mushroom pasties as well as our cooked ham.

We can sell wholesale to businesses too at reduced price depending on the quantity purchased.

Run by longterm expat Kunmingers who know the city and people well, this is a welcome addition to the smorgasbord that is Kunming.

A great local pub to make friends in and a solid menu at great prices.

Also good for travelers just passing through. All are welcome! Barfly loves you!

Barfly is a decent bar. In terms of atmosphere, the closest you'll get to a British pub in Kunming, complete with scruffy, foul-mouthed English landlord. Nice range of beers, some a bit dear, having said that, one of them's a 12% stout that'll knock your twat off. Food's alright, sausage and mash and the sorts. Barfly is a good place to go to meet people, good mix of foreigners and Chinese, hardly ever any fighting. They have a regular pub quiz and music-themed nights, and it's not uncommon to enjoy a light-night lock in if you time it right. One of my favourite places to have a drink as a matter of fact.


Lovely bar with great staff. Excellent place for a newcomer to Kunming to make friends play poker and have some good Beers


One of the best bar in Kunming,excellent and other drinks. Nice people abd atmosphere. Will go back!


Great pub!
Lovely to have a place to go and chat at anytime, great beers on tap. The stout is especially good but more like wine at 12% alcohol.

Food is really good and very friendly atmosphere for anyone from anywhere


I had two to four secret bites of their thanksgiving feast and was sad I didn't spend it here. Seriously. They're not American but neither are most of the people in KM who hosted a dinner. It was clear that they put so much effort into it and it was truly delicious and worth every kuai. My friends decided that they wanted to do Thanksgiving elsewhere so I went along but after ending the night at Barfly, I wished we'd done it there. Seriously delicious and a wonderfully kind effort, especially considering the holiday is essentially meaningless to them. Super intimate environment too.

I hope they do it again next year. I'll def show up for it then. Love to you guys <3
