Shanghai’s nightlife – party every damn day?!

Vegas is the best place to party ?!- what if I tell you a secret…

Shanghai by night is better!

Am I the one to judge? I guess so, one of my top three rules for Shanghai was to see every club. I tried hard, I even wrote this list after I forgot I had already been to one club before.. 😀

We tried hard and failed. There are way too many clubs to see and we ended up going to our favourite ones anyway:

  • Wednesday after Chinese Class to Model’s Night at Mint
  • Thursday in Summer to Ladies Night at Bar Rouge
  • Saturday at Mint again

And when we were very motivated also Tuesday Ladies Night at M2 or at Modu and Friday something new.

What makes Shanghai’s nightlife so awesome?

  1. Free entrance (yes, also for guys!)
  2. Free vestiaire
  3. Free drinks! (yes, not only for girls!)
  4. every day
  5. free entrance to DJs (Fedde le Grand)
  6. free strippers (forget Saumur!)
  7. cheap taxi rides home (max 70 RMB/10€ for 10km)

How does this work?

Well, over time you’ll get to know some promotors who will send you a daily summary of the best parties and they are paid for getting you in for free and giving you free drinks. :O

Chinese clubs are full of tables where Chinese sit down to loud music to order expensive bottles. Foreigners are cross-subventioned for partying hard on the dance floor, because that’s apparently what makes clubs fancy. I have some doubts about that revenue model and ethics though…

Beijing is kind of the same – with most clubs in the street next to Worker’s Stadium:

So, maybe next time:

Mook
Phebe Light à côté
Maya
Playboy
Mansion
S2
Logo
Zlounge
Dada underground group
Nest
Yonkong lu (Straße von café des stagiares)
Les barons….

Do you now understand why Luxembourg feels like a rehab to me? 😉

Last but not least:

“Can we take a selfie? What’s your wechat?” 😀IMG_8540
