    VICS CLUB: VICS CLUB, the best of the Jin city

    by javierengonga Written Apr 30, 2012

    If you are in Beijing and you wish to go out and have a good time, there's no where like VICS. I love Vics club. Even-thought during my first year in China i used to live in Beijing, my nightlife time was almost spent around the WU DAO KOU area (Bla Bla Bar and Propaganda) and i didn't know about Vics until 2007, a year before i finish my studies at Xiangtan University in Hunan (while i was in Hunan i tried to go to Beijing as often as i could at that time, specially during holidays). Vics had at that time something that most of the nightclubs that've been to in China didn't (and i've been to most of the Major Cities in China: Dalian,Chengdu,Chongqing,Changsha,Hangzhou,Shanghai,Xian,Guangzhou,Shengzhen,Jiangmen,Tianjin,Xiamen,..) well.. VICS had real HIP HOP music, and the music was the big difference bitten VICS and other places around China;of course, thanks to a very good DJ (Frank and his lil brother Ricky).

    I do not have Lonely Planet Beijing Guide, but I sure believe it's featured in LP.

    Some people will just visit the place to buy HRC T-Shirt, but I am here just to checking it out (and never buy HRC T-Shirt). Don't scold me ok, I’m not so into showing off I been to Beijing kind of thing.

    If I want a HRC T-shirt, I will wear a Kuala Lumpur’s HRC shirt.

    Happy House: Music and Mayhem!

    by sugarpuff Updated May 21, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place unfortunately does not exist anymore, but I've kept the tip more as a reminder for me of some of the fun bars that used to be here in Beijing!

    This place is the kind of place I could spend every evening during the summer at! It has a large upstairs outside terrace where you can spy on all the passers by down below! The drinks are only 10yuan for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks which equates to around 70p, and it's only the water which is most expensive at 20yuan a bottle! Why is that always the case! The one drink you need to keep you going the whole night and its the dearest!!!!

    There is a mini seating area downstairs with comfy sofas, a dance floor upstairs and then the terrace! The waiters all come to your table to take your order, you then pay and then they come back with the drinks! Its great service!

    The only down point about this whole area is that it is soon to be demolished, maybe within the next couple of months....so you have to head there quickly! Where will I go to get tipsy at the weekend now? Got some serious thinking to do about that now!

    Dress Code: Absolutely no dress code whatsoever...come in jeans, mini skirt, hot pants, feather boa even and no one woud look at you indifferently! Everyone's too busy chatting, drinking and playing dice games to notice whos walking past them!!!!

    What a perfect advert for the Happy House!

    LAN: Is it a Disneyland ride or a set 4 Eyes Wide Shut

    by beaverk Updated Apr 25, 2007

    This is truly a bizarre place only found in contemporary China. One must at least visit once to behold the spectacle. This is a bar/lounge/restaurant that spans at least 40,000 square feet of a modern skyscraper across the street from the Silk Market. The first time I went in was when they first opened. Very few souls there and it instantly reminded me of the mansion in the movie Eyes Wide Shut! However, as I explored the dark cavernous setting further, I found this monstrous and decadent lounge/bar/restaurant resembling much more like Haunted Mansion in Disneyland!!! It has the same style of mirrors, paintings, décor, furniture…well this place is more tacky. Way more.

    LAN serves two types of cuisine: Sichuan and Italian. Both taste really bad and way over priced.

    Music is too loud at the main lounge. The wine selection is great but it is definitely not for the regular crowd. Two bottles of Italian and New Zealand red wine last night cost me 1400 RMB (175USD!!!) And that’s the cheap stuff!!!

    Go once to check it out. Don't order food, order water if they let you. Sit far from the speakers. Take a tour...then go to a real bar/lounge....

    Dress Code: All the expats and the expense account crowd were dessed in causal hip. I went in jeans and T-shirt and it was fine. There were a lot of white women wearing faux China style dress. I suppose when in China...dress like a Chinese girl...

    China Doll: Hot hot hot!!!

    by cheeksy Written Jan 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the hottest clubs in Beijing at the moment. Amazing decor and affordable drinks. You might want to call them in advance though to book a place.
    Oh, and don't mind those videos on the screens, walls and ceiling... A bit strange! Oh well ok. THEY ARE STRANGE!
    Music: some mixture of techno and house. Not the best DJ but it's alright for big drinkers :o)

    Dress Code: Trendy!

    Q Bar: Smooth martini

    by beaverk Written Oct 23, 2006

    On the sixth floor of a really cheap Motel 6 like Chinese inn. This is the last place one would find a fantastic contempo decor lounge/bar serving some of the best drinks in Beijing. low key, moody at times, a wide open terrace section for the warm months, Q Bar can be the secret rendezvous spot for one's discreet encounters or a hang out and chat night with friends on the weekends.

    Dress Code: Super casual

    Mongolian bars in general: Hot Beijing night?

    by tanguero45 Written Feb 28, 2006

    Gentlemen...IF your friends suggest going to a Mongolian bar, DO NOT go there. It is a brothel. Found this out after a really good night at a club only to be brought down by this. Yuk. But if that is your cup of tea...all the power to ya!

    Dress Code: No code...after a while, I suspect it would be no clothes either

    Browns Pub Restaurant: Drinks! Party! Western style water hole

    by beaverk Updated Jan 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The brand new Browns (as of jan 2006) is designed to ease the cultural shock of those who have recently moved here from somewhere outside of China. The place is also for those freaking out over Beijing, had enough of the huge crazy city, the non-western behaviors of the locals, and for those who have been here for a while and need a little piece of that familiar hip pub/bar/drinks therapy. Browns is all that. Interior wide open spaces designed like a huge American sports bar with a great collection of bottles lining the wall behind the bar. Loud and engaging, it's the perfect place to de-stress after a long day sitting in the 2nd ring traffic circus...

    Dress Code: Casual. You will most likely find people still in their business outfits.

    BED: party! Dance! Chill! in a classic hutong setting

    by beaverk Written Jan 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BED is one of those bar/lounge you can't find on the map. Usually someone will tell you about it and how to get there. BED is unique in Beijing. Off the beaten path hidden in a hutong street, the place used to be two courtyard houses joined together. The place is full of great antique furniture. The mood and atmosphere range from low key to psychedelic funk! yep, you have to check it out yourself to figure that one out. Lots of chinese beds are placed in different rooms with ample cushions in case you want to relax and chill. Best mojitos in town. Water pipes standing by upon request. And the owner Cho is always there friendly to chill with you if you like. The tapas are excellent as well.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    BAR BLU: Roof top party!

    by beaverk Written Jan 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bar Blu is a place to go to drink, to be seen, to dance, to party, to play a game for some free prizes, and to play some pool. The decor is...blue...mostly, and the drinks are decent. The only thing is, to get to Bar Blu, one has to walk up four floors!!! I could never figure out how those who had a few too many to drink manage to exit this place.

    Dress Code: Casual. Girls are in their party best of course.

    I can't remember which night was it when we step into HRC Beijing. (unless I check out my credit card bill)

    The cover charge is 100Yuan and come with one choice drink. Anyway, since when I’ll be satisfy with one drink? I ended up spending more than 500Yuan for the night, including buying my pals (4 of us) one round frozen margarita.

    Harder the better!!

    Hamilton Hotel: Hotpot Nights In!

    by sugarpuff Updated Mar 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those of you who don't know what a hotpot is, its like a stew. But instead of everything being boiled on the fire in your kitchen and then distributed amongst the guests or family members, with a hot pot you cook it yourself. Like a fondue! You have your pot and you put in a special sauce to give it some oommpphh, a spicy sauce if you like, or just a vegetable plain sauce. And then you get your different veg and meat (all raw) nd put them in the boiling soup. And when they are ready, you take them out and enjoy eating them!!!! Its all very delicious!

    This particular night, we had invited 3 other people round for dinner so it was a mini dinner party and was a lot of fun!!!

    Hotpot highlights!

    Although it's newly established, the Lotus Market of Hou Hai gives Beijingers and travellers a great place to chat with friends and enjoy delicious food. I always go there with my friends and sit beside the lake. Breeze will bring the aroma of lotus to you in Summer. Oh, I love it!!
