Drinking and nightlife in Jiangxi

  • Nightlife in Nanchang

    Helen's (Bayi Park)

    Helen's large tables and booths fill with groups of young and well-heeled Chinese playing drinking games, smoking hookah pipes, dancing to hip-hop and house, and eating tasty snacks. It's dimly lit, very friendly and a lot of fun, and there are views across the lake from some booths. Another, equally popular branch is further west on Dieshan Lu.

    Rive Gauche Arts Cafe

    This Parisian-themed bar-cafe on busy Minde Lu is remarkably cool for a second-tier Chinese city. The owner has sourced antiques and bric-a-brac from across Europe to create an intimate, kooky venture where you can sip martinis or hot espressos in period splendour.

    Sober

    A trendy but chilled-out cafe serving drip coffee as well as espresso-machine brews. Also has a small selection of bottled craft beers. It's one of a handful of cutesy cafes along this quiet lakeside lane.

    This second branch of the popular bar Helen's also buzzes with a young crowd until the early hours.
