When the sun goes down, Hangzhou gets its second wind. Whatever your inclination, sit at the bar and relax with
a cold beer, a glass of pinot noir, or a classic martini, and be sure to chat with whoever happens to be nearby —you may make a new friend or a valuable business contact. Our guide includes the hottest Hangzhou clubs and
bars as well as KTVs.
When you want a place where the laughter is louder than the music, Maya's your spot. There you get a range of the
young and the old, the rich and the poor. Though not exactly new, it's tidy enough so that you don't have to worry
about getting your white pants dirty. Who wears white pants anyway? Strong drinks keep a loyal group of regulars,
but it's still inclusive to the lone newcomer. Great place to start off an evening. Food available.

Hangzhou's premier jazz venue, JZ Club, has been continued to bring some of the best performers from China and
abroad here. The 3-story space offers intimate seating everywhere, with the first floor being non-smoking out of respect to the performers. The revamped wine list is one of the best in the city, and their selection of
single malt whiskeys will satisfy even the most discerning of drinkers. Nice food is also available if you're feeling a bit
peckish. Simply put, if you're looking for jazz in Hangzhou, nobody does it better than JZ.

It's open 24 hours a day, and people are able to sing their lungs out throughout. Party World is one of the priciest places
in Hangzhou but you get what you pay for with the best sound system and the largest list of songs to choose from-from new to classic, in Chinese, English, Japanese etc. The service is great and the buffet cheap. BTW, if you wanna
throw a party somewhere cozy, you can get one of the super spacey party rooms.

Yin Le Di
Yin Le Di KTV is the biggest chain in Hangzhou. These places are not as luxurious as Party World, but the
price is much more reasonable. The sound system is pretty good, and most of the time you can find the
songs you like. It's the most ideal place for the young to chill without spending a lot of money. The one in
West Town even has a pretty good selection of English tunes.
