Beijing Nightlife from bargain bars to hip hop clubs
It seems cliched but it is becoming increasingly true – whatever you’re looking for, Beijing likely enough has it.
The nightlife in Beijing has always been good with bars open all hours. The only thing that has changed over the last few years is the variety……
From grunge to cocktail, jazz to lounge bars Beijing has everything – even a bus bar! There are bars of all shapes and sizes, some hidden in old pagodas, some high up in tall buildings, somesimply a room with a pump.
The rise of the London-style gastropub has taken Beijing by storm providing homesick visitors with the ideal-place to gobble-down a quick sandwich and sneaky pint while watching the city slide by.
Spend a beery night filling your belly with budget booze around Sanlitun, try one of the posher pubs and sleazy cocktail dens around the Chaoyang park area or sip a sophisticated drink to the sweet sounds of a Beijing diva alongside the lantern-lit beauty of Houhai.
Whatever your poison, and whatever your budget, Beijing should be able to accommodate you – sit back and let the good times roll!
