I disagree with yasir khan. it is not just nice and amazing. it is xiamen's best bar.
Went there recently, and everything has gone downhill. The service was god-awful, the burger wasn't very good, and the staff just seemed like they really didn't care. They also rose prices quite a bit, while lowering quality. I was deeply disappointed.
our experience too - gone downhill - was so much better a year ago!

Don't miss the HIP HOP BBQ & PARTY on Friday evening!
on recommendations posted on WOX our family of 5 (including 3 teens) tried this yesterday afternoon. we had large draft beer (very good), gin and tonic (very good) tequila sunrise (very good), 2 ginger ales (very good) and popcorn chicken with large fries (very good). the staff do not speak very good English but we were able to communicate and place our orders. very friendly, nice ambience, good place to go for decent drink and eats. we'll be going back. highly recommend
we have tried this several times since and it really has been mixed - so we lower our rating to 3 stars. not as good as it used to be. food is really variable and so is service.
really gone downhill - would not recommend (19 July 2014)
Excellent bar, AMAZING specials, great beer, great food, GREAT customer service.
This place is everything Helen's WISHES it was, but will never achieve. For once, I went to a bar in Xiamen and drank the draught beer and ACTUALLY tasted beer and not ethanol or water. For once, the wait staff treated me like a human being and acknowledged mistakes and always tries to make things better.
My only complaints are that it is not closer to my house than Helen's, and the prices are a LITTLE steep, but the specials make up for it.
You Know Bar is a mixture out of a Chinese Cafe like the ones on the Coffee Street, a Chinese/Laowei Restaurant, and a Laowei Bar. They managed to get everything together under one roof. Everyday they have some specials and once a month a special theme party. During the NBA Finals they even opened up the bar earlier for us to watch the games. If you have any complains, just talk to the owners and they will do everything possible to improve.
Only been open for about 2 months, but already the go to bar for me and my friends.
The bar is great. The bar has a comfortable atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Good food and good drinks. It is a good place to have a few beers and a burger with some friends.
I would give the bar a five except that the decibels are off the planet. Music, drinks prices,food, seating, atmosphere and staff all great but you can't speak to the person next to you without screaming, much less enjoy a chat with friends at a table. First time I went there we all agreed on the noise problem. I tried again but had to move outside because I actually wanted to talk to my friends. Following time? A group of us agreed we did not want to go because we would not be able to talk.
Had it not been for the excessive noise level this would have been our new venue and a much nicer one than I've ever found before, with affordable prices for those of us who aren't on overseas salaries, too.
Don't know if you have super ears but every time we are there the music is low enough for us to talk
Finally. A bar with a great atmosphere, comfortable and great drinks, without any irritating Nelly songs blurting out putting me off my pizza. Looks like this might be a place that will clean their beer lines too.
For anyone who has been missing bars back home or just wants a break from the normal nonsense bars in Xiamen, I recommend this place highly. In my humble opinion, they have got this place just right, from the lighting, to the specials to the layout and outside seating area. Nice staff too.
The heat of the Xiamen summer is cooling you down at the "You Know Bar". Sexy waiters and waitresses offer exclusive Amoy cocktails. Let's meet up there!
The waiters and waitresses aren't any more or less sexy than typical waiters and waitresses in Xiamen. They are just waiters and waitresses.
Finally found a bar that doesn't blast music, has relaxing atmosphere and REAL drinks! Also, it's in a cool old style house. Only wish it could be smoke free, third-hand smoking is killing me!
Overall, great bar!
Very nice place near Xiada. Spacious bar - all drinks available. Clean! I watched basketball on the big screen and drank a fresh draft Tsingtao Beer. Next opportunity I will go there again.
Nice place,very nice place. I can stay here for hours, which I cant in most of the dark and boring places in Xiamen. Nice music and atmosphere. Big variety of beers,wine and cocktails. Highly recommended
If you haven't been here, you don't know.
If you have been here, You Know!
The guys that made this place/space are amazing. It's a true Chinese bar of the highest caliber. It's the only bar I know that has delicious cocktails made with Baijiu. That's right, BaiJiu! Yes, they have normal cocktails too!
This place isn't for people who enjoy music so loud they can't hear or trashy women/sleazy laowai, or disgusting/fake alcohol. If you know what I'm talking about then You Know!!!
5 out of 5!!! See you soon You Know!
I was waiting to find a bar like the ones back home, wooden chairs, no sofas, light place, not dark that i cant even recognize people...
I have been there a few times now and i like it.
