Hualongchi化龙池
This is one of the oldest streets in Changsha. It has now become a unique bar district featuring pubs, housed in old residences, which makes the bars very unique. This is also another newly renovated bar district in Changsha aside from the previously mentioned West Jiefang Road. Chic looking bars are interlaced with several refined looking tailor shops and western restaurants. Walking along the streets, you will notice the preservation of the stone block pavement, which is typical in China, as well as some of the more traditional built houses in the city. And still, you can definitely pick up on the unmistakable pulsating energy of modern China as well. Every night after 20:00 is when the real party starts at Hualongchi.

Getting there: Bus routes 142, 317, 908 (westbound line) to South Cai'e Rd station

West Renmin Road人民西路
West Renmin Road is within close proximity to Hualongchi, in fact, it's almost right across the street from it. This place may not have as diverse selection in terms of bar styles but there are a few very refined looking cafes in the area. Most of these venues have chosen to keep the facade of the old-style villas and even renovated the three-story residence to a cozy, comfortable cafe. One of the most popular venues here is called Bund 86; it is a three-story old residence that has been transformed into a very cosy cafe. When the weather is nice, you can sit on the top floor veranda and enjoy sipping coffee and chatting with friends. Xiaozhu Shiguang is also a comfortably decorated, two story café with a nice collection of premium wine and is highly recommended if you happen by.
