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.. 😀
Clubs/bars been to
Café des stagiaires
Cirque le soir
M on the Bund
My favourite: M1NT Shanghai
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?
- Free entrance (yes, also for guys!)
- Free vestiaire
- Free drinks! (yes, not only for girls!)
- every day
- free entrance to DJs (Fedde le Grand)
- free strippers (forget Saumur!)
- 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:
Phebe Light à côté
Dada underground group
Yonkong lu (Straße von café des stagiares)
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?” 😀
