Guilin Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Guilin

We've been talking about how great the natural and scenic beauty of Guilin is. However, that shouldn't fool you into believing that Guilin is only for the environmentalists or those who don't care much about city life. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

Guilin has a vibrant nightlife scene and perfectly combines both familiar and new aspects of nightlife through a range of amazing clubs, bars, and restaurants that offer you nothing but the best your money can buy.

I know that when you hear the word “nightlife,” the first few things that come to your mind are clubs, bars, discotheques, perhaps even strip clubs. However, there's a lot more to nightlife than just those things – even though having a few cool bars to hang out at doesn't hurt at all.

Take all those things we just associated with nightlife and add to those some really amazing places that feature live performances, karaoke, and cultural exhibitions, and you've got yourself a great recipe for some memorable nights.

Here's a list of some of these places you might want to check out during your trip to Guilin:

All Nightlife Venues in Guilin

Baidu Bar

If you've researched a bit on the attractions that Guilin has to offer, you would have noticed that Li River is one of the most famous spots for a number of activities. Guess what, it happens to be an important location in terms of nightlife as well.

Right on the banks of the Li River is the Baidu Bar that aims to provide guests with a combined experience of a vintage European bar as well as a modern nightclub. And the experience doesn't just end there. Its set up has three levels, each dedicated to providing you with a different kind of experience – classic songs and pop music, a KTV box, and a special KTV club.

Fucheng KTV Club

This is another contender vying for the top spot among the top KTV clubs in Guilin. It has 51 specially designed boxes to provide guests with a great karaoke experience. Their audio and video set up is also among the best available on the market to enhance your experience further.

Another aspect that adds more points for the Fucheng KTV Club is its extremely reasonable prices – as you can see from the rates below – and excellent service.

Guohui KTV Center

This one is a haven for KTV fans. With 48 different boxes covering all the ranges including small and deluxe, it's a perfect place to “go let it out” as the famous UK-based band, Oasis says.

A lot of work has gone into its décor and systems in order to make it a world-class venue for the lovers of karaoke. If you have rented a car, this is one of the few places that offers you your own parking space too!

Hao Wang Jiao (Cape of Good Hope)

No, it's not in South Africa. However, it is a great place to hang out, especially if you're traveling with a group of 5-6 people. Play cards, drink beer, or just hang out and have some great conversations; this place is perfect.

  • Opening Hours: 13:00 - 02:00 the next day
  • Location: Zhengyang Road

Jiulong Night Club

Remember how innovative the Asians can get when they really put their mind to something? This night club clearly highlights that nature of the Chinese. I mean, who would think of putting a Sauna, a massage parlor, and and a karaoke room in one place and call it a night club? And for some reason, the combination seems oddly right and interesting. If you agree, here are the details you'd need to know when you plan to visit:

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 - 01:00 the next day
  • Address: S. Zhongshan Rd

Li River Folk Customs Center

This place is located at the junction of the Xiaodong and Li Rivers. It is a perfect location for those looking forward to learn more about ethnic Chinese customs, their cuisine, their art, and their architecture. The Folk Customs Center also features great singing and dance performances; and the food is among the best in the Chinese cuisine.

  • Opening Hours: 08:30 - 21:30
  • Location: At the junction of the Xiaodong and Li Rivers
  • Price Range: Day - approximately CNY45, Night - CNY60

Meng Bi Club

This club is a part of the Guilin Gymnasium and is dedicated to providing its guests with top quality performances and a great place to relax. This club has been in business since 1989 and its popularity hasn't abated among citizens or tourists. That should give you an idea about how seriously these guys take their business.

One of their best shows begins at 21:00 allowing even the busiest of guests to come in at a comfortable hour without the fear of missing anything.

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 - 02:00 the next day
  • Location: Zhengyang Road

Red Sun Karaoke Dancing Hall

The last in our list is your regular Asian hangout where you have a karaoke room along with live performances and dancing. While it does feature a good KTV setup, its main focus is not to be the best KTV place in town. Therefore, if karaoke is your main thing, you might want to consider the Guohui KTV Center or the Fucheng KTV Club

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 - 02:00 the next day
  • Address: 1# 572 N. Zhongshan Rd.

Yiren Bar

While most people looking for a good time at night usually prefer noisy clubs and bars, there are some who aren't as extreme. They'd rather just go to a quiet place with great ambiance and have a good time just relaxing there. If you're one of those, Yiren Bar is an ideal place for you.

With a bar stocked with all the great alcoholic drinks and a soothing, live music performance by artists who take requests too, this place is definitely as classy and comfortable as they come. Perfect for a romantic evening. And if that wasn't enough, you also have free Internet connectivity – though I wouldn't recommend using it while on a date.

  • Opening Hours: 19:30 - 02:30 the next day
  • Address: 27 Yiren Lu, Guilin

Yuehao Club

Continuing further with our point about Chinese innovations, the Yuehao Club too is right up there. It's a karaoke bar, a sauna, and a coffee house all in one place. If given a choice, I'd start with some coffee, work my vocal chords up a bit, and finish the night in style in the sauna.

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 - 01:00 the next day
  • Address: 29 Xingyi Rd
