Nanjing Night Life

Nanjing nightlife is not as diverse as that of Shanghai, but you can still find a mix of everything from theatre performances, night markets, karaoke joints to clubs. There are also some remarkably Western bars, complete with draft beer and pub games such as darts and pool.The clientele in the places mentioned below is usually a mixture of Chinese and foreigners, and they can be excellent places to meet locals. You'll find the bars are generally busier throughout the week, though dancing is usually reserved for Friday and Saturday nights.

There are numerous "western style" bars dotted about the city but the best ones are around the Universities near Shanghai Lu. Slightly further away from the Universities are three popular late night spots: Scarlet Bar, situated on Zhongshan Bei Road; Tequilla Bar on Shengzhou Road; and the Island Bar. This bars and clubs are always bursting with people of all ages and the music is generally good ranging from reggae to doggy style music with a bit of everything else thrown in for good measure.

There are also a few nice hotel bars offering a more relaxed and upper market style of entertainment.The Sheraton Hotel has a nice Irish bar, serving up good pints of Guinness and the Jinling Hotel has something similar.Both these places are ideal for those looking for a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere.
