Voted by trendy "Beijing This Month" magazine as the Best Club of 2007, Tang attracts an in-crowd of Beijing youth. Brightly decorated with purple neon and fibre optic cables, Tang offers karaoke suites on the second floor while downstairs a diet of lounge music, hip-hop and funky house music is served.
A three-tiered dance club / lounge designed with an erotic aquamarine theme. The lounge floor is popular, so if you want a table for your group, reserve it in advance. Dance floor tunes include hip-hop, techno, R & B and a midnight splash of jungle. Perhaps the best disco for over 30s!
One of the longest-running clubs in Beijing, The World of Suzie Wong is a flagship in Beijing's nightlife scene, founded in 2002. Named after the protagonist from British novelist Richard Mason's fiction, this flamboyant club is the place to hang out with the rich and pretty in the capital. The space is divided into five areas. The whimsical 1920-style Touch bar is the core of the club where DJs, performers and parties take action; the charming Suzie Wong lounge on the other hand mixes the modern and imperial Beijing styles in décor and is more intimate and classy. The spacious terrace can hold up to 200 people and is great to hang out at when the weather is nice.
A small nightclub that is not as wild as many of the area's clubs, Nest's patronage is mainly Chinese and that is reflected in the decor and service. Hip-hop and loud bass are the anthems here, but entry is free, and it sometimes has live bands.
The Den is a two-story discotheque that offers pop and dance hits upstairs and an opium den theme downstairs where great pizza and bagels are on the menu. Very popular with Westerners living in the city.
This is THE place to go in Beijing for Hip-Hop, especially at weekends. It's a hardcore, sweaty, flirty, young crowd that hits Mix. Also serves decent food upstairs.
A popular hangout for the young and promiscuous. Dance, disco, pop and techno is the main diet here. Bar Blu frequently hosts theme nights, so you should call beforehand to check what's going on. Happy Hour 5 - 9 and Ladies Nights on Fridays and Saturdays. Bar Blu also has a lovely refreshing roof terrace.
Banana is a European-style dance club with a heavy accent on trance and techno. It gets popular late at night, and with international DJs and an excitable crowd, it's one of the wildest spots in the city.
If you want to rub shoulders with Beijing's young high society, this is the place to come, especially on weekends. Great tunes; in fact, it has something of an Ibiza flavor.
