Chengdu Nightlife

Most of Chengdu's larger bars are concentrated around Renmin Nan Lu (People's South Road) or West Yangshi Sreet, where you can find pubs, clubs, and even late-night bowling alleys. Kakadu Club, Glasshouse Pub and the Red Ages Club (hongse niandai) are among the more popular destinations found in these areas.

The Chengdu foreign community centers around Carol's by the River, a low-key restaurant and bar, and Shamrock Bar and Restaurant, a pub-style taste of home complete with dart boards and a pool table.

More touristy nighttime pursuits are readily available, such as nightly evening performances of Sichuan opera at Shufeng Yayun in Wenhua Gongyuan from 8:00-9:30PM (RMB80). For a less commercialized theatre experience, the teahouse next to the Jin Jiang Theater on Huaxing Zheng Lu holds regular Saturday performances of stick puppets, frame balancing and Sichuan opera for a mere RMB15.
