Very conveniently located behind Hotel Nikko, this is a great place to eat and meet westerners that live here or happen to be in town!
The menu is quite extensive (may be a bit too much!), with all kinds of foods from all kinds of countries. And the beer list is good too!!
From my experience, the food is not great, but it is OK, and, surprise – surprise, they serve outstanding mashed potatoes – they make a great appetizer!! And the lamb chops are very good also!!
The service is not very attentive – make sure you call their attention if and when you want to be served. And the kitchen is slow too, so come with time!
Very eclectic, though sometimes interesting, music! Same with the décor!
The atmosphere is excellent, with a good, multi-national crowd. I great place to have a bite and meet with expats, mostly if you are alone in town!!!
Phone: 0411-82698293; they are open till 2am.

I'll keep this one simple.

The layout of this place has relics and the bizarre from all over the world. So comfy and warm. If you're alone or with friends, there's plenty to look at.

Beer selection is in the dozens. Belgians, Euros, American, you name it. All the liquor you'd need, though I think beer is the order of the day here.

Food wise, there are page after page of continental and comfort food classics served into the wee hours. Tasty and of quality - just remember you're still having western dishes prepared by a single Chinese cook who has a lot of stock to manage. I'm quite particular and I really enjoyed my food.

Service - we were here three nights straight for drinks, though only one included food. Staff is a little bit smartphone-centric (you need to call them over usually), but when things are ordered they come fast and to order. No pretense - all are welcome. Local expats seem well comfortable here, but it's still a bit of a reserved environment.

Strollers is a gem for the expats in Dalian, and I think you'll enjoy a bit of a wind down here. Half smoking, half non-smoking, though you'll still pick up a bit of the smoke in the nonsmoking section - you should appreciate that they're trying. Have a few beers, catch the F1 match or BBC news, and enjoy the awesome decorations.

Support this business so it sticks around.

Strollers is a quirky European bar behind Nikko Hotel. Filled with unusual items, old bikes, barbers chair scientific instruments. Strange. Open at lunchtime unusual for a bar in Dalian. Good selection of beer (try Xingu,Btazilian Black Beer
Could do with a good clean though so gave the food a pass
