Bar in Xi'an

In the basement bowels of the Shuyuan Youth Hostel, this music bar is a tip-top riot and a fun night out. Staff are excellent and very mindful. It has lots of coloured terracotta warrior statues, blues music, balloons and delicious savoury snacks delivered to your table.

A live singer takes to the stand every night save Tuesday. Hoegaarden is on draught at ¥55 a pint. It's candlelit at night.
