Feeling Club in Shenzhen invites one and all for a drink… except the Japanese

Posted: 02/20/2013 6:28 pm

Feeling Club in central Futian, in the heart of the club scene next door to famed Viva, has put up an ad for their international night on Tuesdays. Free beer before 10:30, buy one get one free after that. Seems a good deal. So what could possibly be wrong?


The advertisement for Feeling Club’s Tuesday drink special

Current politics aside (and of course never forgetting “The War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression”), is this really a successful way to attract foreigners to your bar? Perhaps, purely for the sake of marketing, it might be a better idea to keep one’s political feelings to oneself and not plaster them on the side of a bar. Is this something anyone wants to see while going out for an apolitical drink?

    Imagine If some laowai opened a bar and posted… oh I don’t know, “No Chinese or Dogs allowed” on the sign out front… or even the less unPC, “Laowai Only”. I’m sure that would be well received!

    Very sad. I’ll be sure never to patronize this club.

  • Mr Magnus

    This club offers nothing but shame to mankind and horrible atmosphere, I will loose nothing excluding this venue from my world and I think others with higher intellect should do the same.

      Also, they ruin La Casa’s open mic night on a Sunday with their obnoxiously loud crap music.
