Nightlife in Hangzhou
By Viator, July 2015
For families and early birds, Hangzhou has two excellent options for dinner and a show. Impression West Lake, staged and choreographed by the man behind the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies, portrays a love story out of local folklore using the natural surroundings as the stage. For an entertaining look into the thousand-year history of Hangzhou, grab a seat for Romance of the Song Dynasty, a performance including Chinese acrobatics, ballet and traditional folk dances.
For a rowdy and raucous night on the town, head to the bars and clubs of Nanshan Road. Ease your way into the night with a cocktail at JZ Club, an easy-going, sophisticated bar with live jazz performances nightly. Duck in to La Luna Bar for a drink with a view of the water, or for Latin music and dancing, try Night & Day. Slightly less wild but equally lively are the bars and clubs of Shugang Road, including the expat-favorite Maya Bar, super chill Reggae Bar and the popular and loud You To.
