2. Spark Night Club

spark

Spark nightclub promises to get you dancing, conversing with the city’s sexiest  individuals and offers an unique lighting scheme. It’s a little classier than the usual clubs around the Workers Stadium (MIX/LUXY/BABYFACE).   Many Taiwanese enjoy going there because is the sister club of one of Taipei’s most popular nightclubs, Spark Taipei.

3. Club Suzie Wong

Buzzing bar scene, Suzie Wong's, Beijing

Come well dressed to this staple of the Beijing nightclub scene.  Many models and wannabe actor/actress frequent this establishment to hobnob with Beijing’s social elite.  Two rooms both play everything from Top 40 to Hip-Hop. One of the more chic places I’ve partied at in Beijing.  Drinks are expensive by Beijing standards so make sure you pre-drink!

Open Time: Daily 7:00pm to 5:00am

4. Mix

MIX

Right across from Vics. Music is somewhat repetitive.  Two main rooms.  If you switch rooms you are liable to hear the same songs over and over.  Drinks are also expensive. 40 RMB for a bottle of water. WTF? Occasionally hosts top quality international DJs, Mix is known as a hot spot for the hook-up if you are a local.  Most rich Chinese clubbers go here and order a huge bottle of whiskey and sit in booths.  Not as foreign friendly as the other spots.

English Address: Inside Worker’s Stadium North Gate

Chinese Address: 工人体育场北门内

Open Time: Daily Daily 8pm to 6:00am

Phone:86-10-6506-9888,86-10-6530-2889

5. Wu

wu_0

This is the place to hit if you are from 18-25 and staying in the Wudaokou area.  It’s still geared towards the student crowd with Top 40 hits blaring, cheap drinks and depending on the night ALL YOU CAN DRINK, but it’s got a clean look and great space management. 

English Address: 1/F, NW corner, Wudaokou U-Center. 28 Chengfu Rd, Haidian, Beijing, China

Chinese Address: U-Center大厦一层西南角

Open Time: Daily 8:00pm to 5:00am

South Koreans Drink 4X as much as Americans!

This is the absolute truth. Ha.  I’ve lived in both countries.  South Koreans take drinking to another level.   Trying mixing Soju with coca cola or Soju with beer.  Tastes Grrrrrrrreat. The biggest alcohol drinkers on the globe aren’t cuddled up somewhere in sub-zero Siberia; they’re sipping on Soju, in South Korea.

Most densely populated place on earth

Once thought to be the most densely populated place on Earth, with 50,000 people crammed into only a few blocks, these fascinating pictures give a rare insight into the lives of those who lived Kowloon Walled City.
