There are a number of Russian-style bars around the Rìtán Park area, but with its over-the-top, gold-themed decor, cheesy dance shows (10pm and midnight) and party techno tunes this is the closest you will come to a genuine Moscow nightlife experience in Běijīng. A shot of vodka starts at ¥20, beers at ¥30. It gets going after midnight.
If you're in a group, do as as the Russians do and order a bottle of vodka (from ¥180).
