Entertainment in Beijing


This section will start focused on the bar, disco and karaoke scene in Beijing but may expand to other types of venue at a later date. Beijing has a varied nightlife scene, the following basic guide will hopefully give you some idea.

Sanlitun Entertainment District:

 This place seems to be taking over from Sanlitun as the major bar area of Beijing. It is situated around a man-made lake at the north of Beihai Park. Boating is available on the lake till 11pm or 12am (in the summer of course). Very pretty area. Full details coming soon.

Club Banana / Spicy:

Get the full Beijing Disco experience on your first night. Cute girls, bad girls, shady guys, sound loud enough to make you deaf, kick ass security. The place to be seen. The best and most popular venue in Beijing. If you're looking for some ground-breaking new scene don't bother coming here. If you're looking for a beautifully decked out typical Asian disco experience with a tremendous, fun, atmosphere, look no further. Especially good on Friday and Saturday nights.

Party World:

This is the full-on Beijing Karaoke experience. A massive chain. Looks more like a 5-Star Hotel than a Karaoke. Shame they have almost zero English. Find a Chinese friend to take you. This place has FREE FOOD !! a lot of the time, and is open 24 hours ! Used to be called Cash Box.

Floor Shows:

Beijing is one of the few remaining places to still have good variety shows many are included with the price of admission, or even completely free as long as you're drinking/eating something. We recommend the following locations. Note: These are not the general tourist fare. New section coming soon on Acrobatics, Peking Opera.

 Re Dian no more:

Nice modern place, small, crowded, loud. More of the Beijing disco experience. Often has more guys than girls but the floor shows are usually good. Update 12/28/03: Appears to be slated for demolition and therefore closed. So sad. Hopefully it will move elsewhere.
