Introduction Beijing is a magical city of art and culture, politics and history. It is a wonderful mix of thousands of years of history and all of the latest global trends. More importantly, it is also home to a growing nightlife scene. You have in your hands the best local guide to Beijing’s nightlife. From live entertainment and dancing to Martinis and Belgian beer, we know where to have fun in this capital city. Best of all, we can help you and that taxi driver get there. We a r e n o t j u s t t h e s t a f f o f localnoodles, but also the thousands of local Beijing residents who have contributed to user reviews at localnoodles.com. We are not a collection of finicky critics with odd biases fresh off a plane from Paris or New York. We are a mixture of Chinese and foreign Beijing locals who love to explore this city with a passion and thirst for fun. Come share our exploits. Trust us, your friends and visitors will thank you!

Tel:+86 132 4185 2563

This is the Houhai bar that got away from the cookie-cutter. Excellent music, a pleasant interior, and a quiet 2nd floor which is excellent for any amount of people. In addition, you will find great prices, including a great happy hour. Seek out the owners Jamie and Jiangyi, whose friendliness is well known.

This well polished bar is certainly more Shanghai than Beijing, with its sumptuous 18 meter counter and lavish decor you’ll feel like a million dollars while sipping your dry Martini. Come to see Beijing’s beautiful people play, and hear the strong international DJs spin.

Kokomo Caribbean Cocktail Bar Caribbean

Tel:+86 10 6413 1019

As one of the few spots in the Sanlitun area with a really great view from the rooftop, Kokomo is a great place to lounge away if the music is appropriate. Downstairs you can enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere, where you can sip a cool tropical cocktail among the fish tanks.

This hotel bar is true to its name by having a décor completely decorated with dragon themes. The place itself is surprisingly large, with three rooms, including two lounges where the lounge pop is steady. The bar offers good prices for various vodkas, and the relaxed atmosphere and high end clientele make this to drink. —RCMD by Jim G. 龙吧 朝阳区建国路 83号JW万豪酒店 二层 Chāoyáng qū jiànguó lù 83 hàoJWwàn háo jiǔdiàn èr céng

Super place to catch some of the best Jazz bands in Beijing. Come for the music, the company, and the cocktail menu. Also worth noting is the happy hour, with 2 for 1 beers and wine deals.

One of the few good African restaurants in Beijing, Pili Pili will provide a good dose of curried goat, which is as good any. The service staff is very charming, and the art on the walls, which provides a friendly atmosphere, is all for sale at affordable prices. A favorite place to go for a drink outside next to the man-made lake. —RCMD by Monk N. 比力毕利非洲 餐吧 朝阳区莱太花街 星吧路22号 Cháoyángqū Lái Tài Huā Jiē Xīng Ba Lù 22 Hào

Press Club Bar Hotel Bar

Tel:+86 10 6460 6688 x2360

The Press Club is reminiscent of some of the better bars in London. You almost expect to catch a glimpse of some diplomat doing business over a couple of single malts or some news editor drowning his daily sorrows. Lots of interesting characters with even more intriguing stories. Drinks are expensive, but after all this is a classy place.

A non-pretentious, quality, 24 hour, establishment serving western food and good alcohol at reasonable prices. With ‘‘okay’’ service, ‘‘okay’’, and ‘‘okay’’ food, Rickshaw manages to somehow combine all the best aspects of a casual dining environment with a bar, and do it far better than almost anywhere else in Beijing. It’s not high-end, but it feels a lot like home.

With its excessive amount of Budweiser art, it seems like Skyline is a Beijing bar that wants desperately to be in America, at least stereotypically. In front of the Budweiser painting is a stage on which live music is played every night. The place also has a decent balcony.

This venue is one-of-a-kind. The owners are known for brining in quality local and international music, and as a space, the design is unique, with tables planted in little wooden nooks, on a lego-treetrunk-like slope, and all white furniture. Located in the bottom floor of a mall, not the best setting, but once inside, you’ll never know.

If you can find it, White Rabbit is one of the better places to go watch electronic music in Beijing. It’s literally an underground club that emphasizes music and down plays everything else. During the week White Rabbit hosts evenings with differing musical focus but on the weekend it’s strictly ravish electronica.
