Description

Bookworm is more like a cafe and library. As well as books, the place serves a little bit of everything from lamb curry to pizza, a great place to grab a lunch bite.

They're also home to one of the best burgers in town, the Bookworm burger. A beef patty smothered in BBQ sauce can't easily be beat. Add a side of light and cripsy fries and you have one quality meal.

The Bookworm is my home away from home in Suzhou. The atmosphere is so relaxed, nice live music, great salads and of course so many books. Love it!

I love their beef burger, the meat was so juicy and it reminded me of a taste I haven't had in a long time! Nomnom is all I have to say. The staff are all really lovely too. I will slowly try more things on their menu, I've also had the club sandwich which was nice.

The bookworm will always be one of the best places in Suzhou. It is a real community bar. Easy to meet people if you are new in town. Great food and events. Worth making the effort into town to chill out in the garden, listen to some live music, have a laugh at the quiz, etc. Your Suzhou trip is incomplete if you haven't visited The Bookworm

The Booworm is THE place to go for lunch or for a coffee. The service is very good and fast, the food is great, the environment super cosy and the personnel are friendly and accomodating. It Is also a perfect place where to meet people, have a drink and play music on Wednesday night for the open mic. For sure the best place to start your expat life in Suzhou.

Quite nice place. When I need to work, I like to go there. The books settles me down. When I meet friends in the evening, I like to go there to have a Sangria.

Bookworm is a super awesome place with great environment and atmosphere. Love their pancake brunch, and of course their weekly Open mic on Wednesday nights. I go there as much as I can, it provides a place for musicians to share their music under a relaxing environment.

Bookworm is great. One of the few places that has a consistent level of good service, decent food, decent prices and oh yeah they serve alcohol quite early on nice days on the weekend to sit outside on their patio and have a few. :)

Bookworm is definitely my favourite place in Suzhou! Living just across the road, I go there a good couple of times a week. It has something for everyone ranging from pub quiz on a Thursday, open mic on a Wednesday, board games, a place to sit outside to enjoy the sunshine with Sangria and a place to do my lesson planning/studying! The staff are so friendly and will do anything to help! It will definitely be the thing I miss the most when I leave Suzhou!

the bookworm is my haven in Suzhou, my home from home! A place I go to relax, do work, meet new friends or catch up with old friends. The staff go above and beyond to help you in anyway and the food is excellent! They have a great line up of events too from local bands to book festivals! All in all it has something for everyone!

Pretty cool place. Went there on a Friday to join the weekly games night. Ate a burger (which always tastes wonderful in the bookworm) and had a beer (you get 1 for 10 rmb after ordering a burger :D ). Next I joined a group of people on the second floor to play some games until late. All in all, I'm very satisfied

The Bookworm is easy to find and famous for its environment. There are many events at night and they had a live music when I went there with my friends. The drink I ordered was quite special which was full of salts on the rim of the glass. Anyway, it's a good place to kill your time.

The Bookworm is really special, a place to be treasured. If I lived nearby I'd be there all the time, but as it stands Wednesday night Open Mics are really fun, and I've been meaning to check out the movie club on Sundays. The staff are nice and genuine, and its a really unique, cozy place. Forget Starbucks, this is a real coffee shop. And there's beer!

I was there last week and it's great to see The Bookworm still carries the flag high and proud for class, cosiness and culture, I still love to go there as a customer, still one of if not the top venue in Suzhou, long may she reign.

The bookworm is a warm cosy place to sit and chill for a couple of hours (or more!). The staff are friendly, the food is tasty and the coffee is real coffee.

This bar is a fantastic place to come! We came here on a Friday night when they had live music playing and although it is small it is incredibly intimate and a lovely place to be! Just be prepared to have to remind the bar staff of your order the first time and then after that it is fine! The prices are good and the atmosphere is incredible!!

Good food, good people, good drinks, and good music! It's the cornerstone of the Suzhou entertainment scene. Most of the foreign musicians in town start off their Suzhou music "careers" playing Weds at Open Mic Night. They have comedy and literary lectures, board game night and movies, drink specials and English Corner, awesome food, and even a freakin' library! What more can one want? I have personally performed with a Brazilian bossa nova diva and a sitar player at the Bookworm this year. It's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get...but it's always cool! My favorite is their American beers! Everyone needs to make this a regular stop in their quest for fun in Suzhou!
