One more option right smack dab in the middle of the CBD. There is a McCawley's in Sea World near The Terrace, but the Futian version is bigger and more fun. It's actually on the opposite side of Club Viva, and across the street is Coco Park.
So, here's a novel idea: Start at McCawley's with some authentic Irish-style pub food and a good imported beer on tap, and make your way to Viva or any of the bars at Coco Park's bar street!
If you'd rather stay the whole evening at McCawley's, you won't be disappointed. Also with several outdoor picnic-style tables, this is a great place for people watching and a good Western meal if you're craving one. The (good) beer selection is much bigger than most, and sports on satellite TV is never a bad thing.
