Nanfang TV: A closer look at a Dongguan nightlife institution

Posted: 02/28/2012 9:50 am

We took our Nanfang TV cameras and crew out to Dongguan last weekend, where we sat down with Jason, one of the four owners of well-known pub One for the Road.

OFTR, as it’s known by locals, has earned itself a place at the heart of the expat scene in the city. ¬†As such, it’s become a bit of a lightning rod – some ask why bother coming to China just to hang out at an expat British pub, while others say it’s a badly needed taste of home.

OFTR has earned a reputation of delivering hearty meals (the portions are huge) and ice cold beer, which is even more important than ever in these largely tropical climes.

Jason hails from South Africa and opened the bar in 1996.  Nanfang TV host Paul James sampled the Mac & Cheese and a few pints of beer before having a chat with Jason about the pub, its origins, and future plans.

We hope you enjoy it.
