Q: Anyone in Wuxi?

I'm curious if this 3 year old article on echinacities is still applicable about places to eat in Wuxi: http://www.echinacities.com/Wuxi/city-guide/Finding-Familiar-Flavours-Western-Restaurants-in-Wuxi

 

Hopefully the more recently published article about expat bars is reliable: http://www.echinacities.com/Wuxi/city-guide/Drown-the-Night-Away-5-Popular-Expat-Bars-in-Wuxi

 

Me and the gf are planning on headed there for this upcoming May 1st holiday.  I tried using a similar article from echinacities when we went to Suzhou last year, and more than half the places were shut down or relocated or who knows what.  I'd appreciate any input on where to eat, drink, and generally be merry in Wuxi wink

I've been to Wuxi several times, most recently about 2 months ago.  Every time I go, I see great change.  It is a city in the midst of upheaval and development.  I would not be surprised if most of those places in the article were gone or moved.

Red Lion, Blue Bar and The Blue Marlin I know. All open, all cool IMHO. When you go to the Red Lion, say 'hey' to Les and Stu, the Aussie owners. Good people. RL is across the street from the front entrance to Hotel Nikko.

 

I can't say anything either way about Jason's cuz I never been there.

Red Lion is a good shout, nice western feel, also went to Taihu lake to see the big Buddha there, it was pricey but I personally really enjoyed it, it was very peaceful there. I don't live in Wuxi, but I enjoy going there for a day or two every now and then, I like the feel of the city. heart

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
