A Quick Guide to the Fuzhou Bar Scene

A Quick Guide to the Fuzhou Bar Scene

Being one of the more open minded cities in China, Fuzhou developed a healthy supply of bars early on. That is why the city today boasts a very wide range of bars catering to each customer group with different styles of décor, music and atmosphere. This guide will take you to a selection of bars each with their own style, so that you can make your choice.


West No.66 Bar

West No. 66 bar is located on Hubin Lu in the Gulou District of Fuzhou. There is plenty of parking space outside the club, making it convenient to get here by car. The club itself is fairly large and accommodates around 400 guests. It is decorated in the ever popular Sino-European post industrial style which seems to be relentlessly encroaching upon establishments in the Middle Kingdom. On the charts is an eclectic mix of trip hop, R&B, hip hop as well as featuring live bands from China and beyond.

You seem to have missed the entire bar district on white horse road, including the key foreign bars, the new "tiny bar", foreign designed and partially foreign owned and the old favourite feelings bar.
