New York Bar, TsingTao 1940

New York Bar, TsingTao 1940.

New York Bar, was one of Tsingtao’s (Qingdao) most popular bars in the 1940’s. Even the invading Japanese did not destroy this relic of history during World War II. Hal Stephens, a U.S. Marine stationed in TsingTao in 1945 through 1949, recalls in his book Take China: The Last of the China Marines the popularity of NY Bar. This should NOT be confused with the current Club New York Bar that is located on Xiang Gang Zhong Road.
