    LR Lounge Bar

    Live acoustic music on weekends draws a crowd to Changchun's best small cocktail bar where bow-tied bartenders shake and pour for an eclectic mix of the young and groovy. Look for a large industrial door 30m west of the intersection.

    Time Bar

    The best feature of this two-storey music pub is its leafy patio seating on the intersection of Xikang Lu and Mudan Jie. Order a beer, squint, and you could almost be in Shanghai's French Concession. Inside, large tables face a glitzy stage with live bands nightly from 8pm. A western menu includes pasta (from ¥40), pizza and fried shrimp.

    Najia Coffee

    A trendy cafe with a smoky bar side, Najia is an impressive, large space with huge curved windows and a mezzanine, great for watching the well dressed sip imported beers, or the blinking of traffic and neon outside.
