1 + 1 Bar, Xi'an
Most guidebooks recommended this place, but I personally shun it. Crowded and quite rowdy (late night), it plays house music + chinese rock/disco songs.
Drinks are not cheap - same beer costs me RMB 25 here.
Dress Code: No dress code.
This is a loud Chinese club. It was very crowded and the staff had a hard time with my limited Madarin (plus it was loud). A nice change of pace from historical touring, but nothing to go out of your way to see.
Dress Code: None noted
1+1 Bar on Dong Da Jie is the most famous one.
Tang Dynasty Show (Tangyuegong) on Zhang An Lu gives nice Chinese Tang musical and dancing performance.
Defuxiang is a street flanked by cafes.
Dress Code: Dress formal if you will like to enjoy Tang Dynasty Show.
If you are used to the European club scene or any other trendy clubbing around the world, then this will be really amusing. The music is mostly cheesy and odd western music along with Chinese dance but for some reason i loved it! They will stick a slow dong inbetween the dancey stuff to remind us all of our high school days! A downside (or a funny side) is a black singer miming some back street boys tunes who seems to be very popular with the crowd. He does pull some stunts like putting a flaming torch inside his pants, ouch!! The Go Go Dancers are stunning!More Nightlife
Dress Code: Anything goes (i think).
