Xī’ān’s nightlife options range from bars and clubs to cheesy but popular tourist shows.

A main bar strip is near the South Gate on leafy Defu Xiang – one of the most pleasant parts of Xī’ān to stroll through by day.

Clubs get going early in Xī’ān. They are free to get into, but expect to pay at least ¥30 for a beer. Most are located along or off Nan Dajie.
