McCawley's Irish Bar and Restaurant - CLOSED


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2016 Winner

Location and contact

As the biggest western bar & restaurant in Guangzhou, McCawley's should be high on a things to do list when in town, at almost 1,000 square meters and is conveniently located on Hua Li Lu. Spread out over two floors, on arrival the first thing everyone will notice is the amazing facade that stretches over 30 meters wide. Fitted in hard wood and stained antique the facade is finished with old lanterns and brass goose-necks. Giant brass letters spelling out McCawley's confirms you have arrived at the right place. Food is extremely important to our operation and we have dedicated 200sq meters of our premises to the Kitchen Area - our menus will be a mix of Traditional Pub Food & Gastro Pub Food

Regret to say that it looks like McCawley's in Guangzhou is closed. A number of bars had to stop using their 2nd floor due to fire regulations, this has led to several of them closing down, and it looks like this has happened to McCawley's....More

We had a burger, chicken fajitas and a couple beers. Everything was good, esp the fact that the chicken was white meat!

Had a great, quick lunch here before catching my flight home. The brisket had a really good taste, could’ve used a bit more meat but nonetheless was a nice lunch.

Not easy to find the first time, but this is a fantastic place to go with friends. A large food and drink menu. A good place to watch sports or after 10:30 you can see live music.

I came here based on a recommendation from an Australian guy who works at the hotel I am staying at. He mentioned this place - "an Irish place with great food". Now Irish and great food rarely goes hand in hand if I am allowed...More

I was so happy to wash down the heat with a Guinness!! What a relief!! The menu looked good, and there were football games on the tv, but we just came for the Guinness.
