The bar street of GuangZhou is maybe the most disapointing bar street i have ever seen. But still you just have to go there while in this city. It's a street of at least 500 meter, with a lot of buildings. But the problem is, most of the bars are closed.. Many are construction cites, and while we were there, only 3 bars/clubs were open and one outdoor restaurant.
The prices was shokingly high for the drinks. Good thing was that there were live music. The same kind of music you will find in Hong Kong, with a band of Phillipinos singing modern songs like Wycleaf Jean o.l. Good entertainment.
Funny thing about the street are the extremly beautiful girls that are there to get you to go in to the bars. They are not prostitutes.
Dress Code: No special dress code, as far as i know.

For the most up-to-date listings on all of Guangzhou's nightspots, pick up a copy of "that's PRD" magazine upon your arrival in Guangzhou (the PRD stands for Pearl River Delta). This English language publication includes extensive reviews of nightclubs, bars, restaurants and other activities available in Guangzhou, as well as articles, news about coming events and classified advertisements... You can get a free copy in various locations around the city, such as the Garden Hotel concierge desk, or the Cave Bar... The magazine also covers nearby Pearl River Delta cities of Dongguan and Shenzhen.

The Cave Bar is a nightclub and restaurant located near the Garden Hotel on Huanshi Donglu... They have reasonable approximations of Western favorites such as quesadillas and potato skins, though they don't quite match up to the authentic originals... Drinks are expensive here as the place caters mainly to expats... There's a latin music and salsa dancing party one night per week... They also have a foosball table and when I was there, I got into a fiercely competitive match with an incensed Russian gangster who played his heart out -- final score was Russian gangster 9, Guantanamera 10! Guantanamera wins by one point!!

You get off the Hai Zhu Guang Chang Metro station, and you experience the high density of population doing shopping, dinning, clubing, selling, and etc. Then you walk down the street along the pearl river. You can see the spectacular lights of the tall buildings, boats, bridges. On your side of the road, you can see very old colonio buildings. Finally, you look for Beijing Road, on your left. Walk along the road until you get to the busy street of Beijing Road.

This is a fun club, not really much of a dance club but there is a smaller dance floor with people always on it. Depending on where your table is there is a minimum you must spend per person. 500rmb in front of the dance floor and 600rmb one level higher by the bar, i am not sure about the prices higher up, there are 2 more levels. I dont think it gets much more than that. There is also a live band every night playing from 9:45pm, they play for 30 mins then take about 15-20 minute break. I am not sure where the band is from but there are 2 chinese people in the band and aswell 3 black people (2 girls, 1 female) They play some older hits and a few newer songs aswell. Oh and i am not quite sure how much you have to spend but after a few drinks and a bottle of JW, they were bringing us Heineken on the house, i believe it is normal as long as you spend a certain amount of money.
Dress Code: Casual is okay, its more of the classier bars in GZ but as long as you look on the better side of the table then its all okay.

Despite a new entrance and a new bar area, African Bar unfortunately has the same d¨¦cor and now looks so last millennium. Even so, there were still a good handful of locals enjoying a few beach-buster summer sounds although not a single gwei lo (foreigner) in sight. H/H 7-9pm.
Daily 7pm-2am. No cards. 2/F, Zi Dong Hua Bldg, 707 Dong Feng Dong Lu (8762 3336, 8762 4348)
An Quan Di Dai
Is there really enough musical talent to go around all the local show bars these days? You probably wouldn't think so after a night here. A seemingly endless parade of talentless dollies and overdressed giffords churning out half hearted covers of Cantonese classics. I'll get my coat. H/H 8-10pm.
Daily 9pm-2am. 228 Hai Zhu Bei Lu (8318 1743)
Getting quieter all the time as those in the know migrate to Fishman's Port. It is such a shame that the non-hetero bunch are such a fickle lot when it comes to choosing their bar allegiances. Open from 8:00p.m. till 2:00a.m.
Daily 6pm-2am. No cards. 42 Ti Yu Dong Lu (8551 9496)
Auckland Romantic Bar
Not sure what is so romantic, maybe the dark corners and reasonable prices. Live music Th.Fr.Sa. 10.30-11.30pm.
Daily 7.30pm-3am. No cards. G/F, Yue Kang Ge, Wu Yang Xin Cheng (8737 4999)

Cosy is about the most polite we can be about these bars. Luckily they are off the beaten track and do not get busy enough for the cramped conditions to be a problem.

A hot hopping place with a pop-rock band on the first floor. On the second floor there is a huge disco with a real pumping beat and next door a dance floor for erotic dancers. 18 KO rooms. This is so hot it costs RMB30 on Fri & Sat, RMB10 Sun-Thur , ladies free. Snacks and beer normal prices.
Daily 8pm-2am. Dong Jun Plaza, 836 Dong Feng Dong Lu (8765 1867)
Definitely a place to make you feel your age. Plenty of teen 'casherette' types in orange moon-boots, followed by little troupes of tops-off boys. A bit like the cheeleaders in Daria, sad in retrospect but laff-out-loud funny at the time.
Daily 8pm-2am. 5/F, Liwan Plaza, Chang Shou Lu (8139 1118)
It's a multifunctional and multi-style bar. A western restaurant with light pop by day and a night club at well, night.

A karaoke club is this resort is what all of us have expected . But what we didn't expect is the list of songs available in this huge karaoke lounge... It has a really huge selection of songs ranging from the 70s... to the last rock band... from all over the world.. Its fabulous. coz we thought we can only sing Theresa Teng's " Yue Liang Tai Piau Wo Te Shing" . In English, it means " The Moon represents my heart" Pardon me, its my own direct translation : )
Dress Code: Casual... but please don't wear shorts and slippers ...

If there is anything that you can enjoy, it is a night cruise on the Pearl River. While it is not as interesting during the day, the many bridges that cross the river are lit by neon lights at night. There are several night cruises available. Some are just cruises and others provide tea and Chinese delicacies. I highly recommend any of them.
The particular one I took was selected by my relatives and was excellent. We had unfortunately had a very lovely dinner at one of the restaurants nearby before we cruised. We rode the cruise down to Shaiman Island before back tracking to the boat dock.
Dress Code: Casual dress is accepted. Usually more conservative dress is appropriate.
