Liu: Uncle, shall we go to a bar?
Huang: I haven’t found any bars near here.
Liu: Bars are usually concentrated in certain areas. Beijing has a few bar streets. There are some outside our university as well.
Huang: wher are the most interesting bars?
Liu: There’s one in Sanlitun I go to a lot.
Huang: What’s it like there?
Liu: It has a nice vibe. I often go because of the atmosphere.
Huang: Are the drinks expensive?
Liu: I think they’re expensive, but I only have one drink each time I go.
Huang: How about we check it out today?
Liu: Sure. Fortunately, I’m not doing anything today.
Huang: wher is it? Is it far?
Liu: Not far. It’s at Sanlitun. The bar’s owners are rock musicians. So, the music there is great.
Huang: You’re a rock fan?
Liu: I like music, both modern and classical. Sometimes, I think rock sounds pretty cool.
Huang: We must be there. There are bars everywher.
Liu: We’re there. It’s that one in front.
waiter: What would you two like to drink?
Liu: I’ll just have a beer.
Huang: What drink do you recommend?
waiter: This cocktail is good. It’s our bartender’s latest creation. Our bartender here is quite well known.
Huang: OK，I’ll have one of those.
Huang: There are mainly young people here.
Liu: People who “pao ba”, or hang out in bars, are usually young people. There’s quite a lot of foreigners and overseas students.
Huang: “Pao ba” is an interesting expression. It must be new?
Liu: “Pao” means “soak”. So, I think it implies spending a long time in a bar.
Huang: wher can you find pleasant outdoor bars?
Liu: The nicer outdoor bars are probably at Houhai.
Huang: In the center of the city?
Liu: Yes，the scenery there is wonderful.
Liu: We’ll go there next time. It’s a major hotspot.

Beijing used to be thought of as a dull city with little or no nightlife, but that has changed dramatically over the past decade. I heard from one reporter that he tried to walk one block down any major street in Beijing without coming across a restaurant. He failed. There are a huge number and variety of restaurants in Beijing now.
The same goes for bars and nightclubs, but most bars are focused into certain areas called 酒吧街, literally bar streets. Sometimes these are more like neighborhoods of several intersecting streets.
One of the first and largest bar areas is Sanlitun. This is an area wher there are many foreign embassies and so reflects a mix of cultures from all around the world. It's very popular especially with the expat community.
Another bar area is around 学院路, literally "college street". As the name suggests, this is an area of Beijing wher many universities and colleges are located. So this is a popular area with university students.
朝阳公园 Chaoyang Park is another popular area. This is on the Eastern side of Beijing.
Some of the bars are large enough to hold concerts, especially for local rock and jazz bands. On any given weekend, there will be several different bands appearing at local bars. The best way to find out specific information is to look at the English tourist magazines and newspapers that are often distributed for free in hotels, coffeeshops and bars.
