Drinking and nightlife in Henan

  • Nightlife in Zhengzhou

    Lazy Taps

    Giving Zhengzhou's iffy beer scene a good kick in the pants, this upstairs bar has 20 beers on tap, including some brewed by the Lazy Taps microbrewery in Anhui, and a good selection of fresh, bottled goodies. The food menu is dominated by terrifically spicy Sichuan snacks (¥28). Prices for a small tap beer start at ¥45.

  • Nightlife in Kaifeng

    Guangying Cafe

    Guangying Cafe is a breath of fresh air in Kaifeng. Come here for cold drip coffee, generous lattes and icy-cold craft beer. The food service is slow but worth the wait: the hand-cut potato wedges, ¥28, particularly hit the spot.

  • Nightlife in Luoyang

    Blue Mountain Street Coffee

    This gorgeous tea parlour is decked out with traditional wooden furniture, gilt-framed oil paintings and lush, green plants. The kindly owner serves an excellent espresso and there is a lovely variety of teas and cakes on offer.
